SAMUEL L. JACKSON TO HOST "VGA TEN" - THE TENTH ANNIVERSARY OF SPIKE TV'S "VIDEO GAME AWARDS"

EMMY(R) AWARD-WINNING PRODUCER MARK BURNETT RETURNS AS EXECUTIVE PRODUCER

"VGA TEN" Premieres LIVE on Friday, December 7 at 9:00 PM ET/6:00 PM PT

New York, NY, June 4, 2012 - Samuel L. Jackson will return to Spike TV to host "VGA TEN," the tenth anniversary of the "Video Game Awards" live on Friday, December 7 at 9:00pm ET/6:00pm PT. The acclaimed international film, stage and video game star, most recently featured in the summer blockbuster, "The Avengers," has hosted the "VGAs" three times from 2005-2007.

The biggest night in the gaming universe will feature world premieres of the most anticipated games of the future and once again simultaneously air LIVE on both Spike TV and Spike.com. "VGA Ten" will also air in over 100 countries and territories around the world.

"I'm thrilled to once again preside over the biggest night of gaming," said Jackson. "And to all the gamers out there - you better circle the date right now and not make any plans that night - you don't want to be that one guy among your friends who misses this show."

"Sam is a gamer, an icon and one badass host," said Casey Patterson, Executive Producer and Executive Vice President, Event Production, Talent & Studio Relations for Viacom Entertainment Group. "We are thrilled to have him back at the controls for 'VGA Ten' as we celebrate a decade in the gaming universe."

Also returning to the "VGAs" is Executive Producer Mark Burnett, the multi-Emmy Award-winning acclaimed producer of "Survivor," "The Voice," "The Apprentice," the "63rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards," the "MTV Movie Awards" and the "People's Choice Awards."

"The combination of Samuel L. Jackson and the Tenth Anniversary of the 'Video Game Awards' are already making this year's show a must-see event for gamers all around the world," said Burnett, "and we haven't even started talking about all of the World Premieres yet!"

"I'm a huge Samuel L. Jackson fan and literally can't get enough of him," Burnett continued. "What an amazing opportunity to work with Spike for the second time and with him for the first time."

In January, Jackson was cited by Guinness Book of World Records as the highest-grossing actor of all time, bringing in over seven billion dollars in revenue. Jackson next stars in Quentin Tarantino's upcoming film, "Django Unchained," which comes to theaters this December.

Since 2003, Spike TV's "Video Game Awards," has paid tribute to the year's absolute best in gaming and featured exclusive world premieres of the most anticipated games of the future. The "VGAs" have gained the reputation of being the place for the world's top video publishers to premiere their titles, and this year, "VGA Ten" will provide a sneak peak of the next generation of gaming.

Dubbed the "Oscars for Videos Games" by The Los Angeles Times & The Washington Post, the show has featured appearances by Hugh Jackman, Charlize Theron, Jack Black, Tiger Woods, Foo Fighters, Kiefer Sutherland, Dwayne Johnson, Stevie Wonder, Neil Patrick Harris, Zac Levi, Jake Gyllenhaal, Weezer, Eva Mendes, Kevin James, Tony Hawk, 50 Cent, Mike Tyson, Vin Diesel, Snoop Dogg and many more.
