A-LISTERS TRACY MORGAN AND NEIL PATRICK HARRIS CALL IN ANIMAL PLANET'S EXOTIC AQUARIUM DUO IN NEW INSTALLMENTS OF HIT SERIES "TANKED"

-- TANKED Heads Out on the Road to Grant Wishes for Custom Aquatic Art --

(New York, New York, July 10, 2012) - TANKED is back and bigger and better than ever with everyone - even huge celebrities - clamoring to get their hands on a one-of-a-kind piece of aquatic art from ATM (Acrylic Tank Manufacturing). Wayde King and Brett Raymer are brothers-in-law, business partners, best friends and rivals - together they head up family-owned ATM, the country's leading and most successful aquarium builder with state-of-the-art facilities in the heart of Sin City. There will be no shortage of blow-ups, would-be disasters and drama as the team heads out on the road for some of the biggest installs ever, for A-list clientele such as Tracy Morgan, Neil Patrick Harris and NFL linebacker Bart Scott. Everyone gets TANKED this August, starting with the premiere episode "We're Gonna Need a Bigger Tank" featuring Tracy Morgan on Saturday, August 11, at 9 PM (ET/PT).

The newest chapter of TANKED takes the ATM team across the country for the biggest and baddest builds yet! Wayde and Brett and their crew are up to their ears in new business that takes them to exciting locales for the most impressive tanks to date including:

· A Jaws-themed shark tank for the home of Emmy-winning funnyman Tracy Morgan-- the ATM team has to assemble the massive tank inside Tracy's home, which creates more problems than they ever imagined. Plus, it's hard to stay focused when you have one of the world's funniest people cracking jokes while you work!

· The one-of-a-kind bi-level Koi fishpond, complete with waterfalls and lighting for NFL linebacker Bart Scott

· A replica Houdini escape tank for Neil Patrick Harris' famous hangout The Magic Castle

· A complex mega-tank for a Twin Cities real estate company - ATM creates a fish condo community where five different tanks designed to look like homes are connected by tubes with the hope that the fish will travel from one to the next, creating their own aquatic metropolis!

· A unique tank for a Chicago manufacturing company built over a staircase - Wayde and Brett even get super-star treatment with a chartered flight to the facility.

"It's been a wild year for ATM," says Wayde King, CEO, Acrylic Tank Manufacturing. "We've done some amazing things in the past, but I never thought we'd be giving Tracy Morgan a shark tank in his basement or hanging out with Neil Patrick Harris talking about his dreams for a replica Houdini escape tank for his famous hangout, The Magic Castle - and that they'd be just as excited to meet us as we were to meet them!"

Wayde and Brett like to have their share of fun, but working in the world of aquarium building is serious business and really hard work! Between meeting the expectations of their ever-demanding clients on unbelievable deadlines to the complexities of creating a piece of aquarium art that's functional and beautiful, Wayde and Brett have their hands full. The duo thrives on humor and has learned to laugh along with the colorful cast of characters who make up the ATM family. Truly a family affair, they are joined by Heather, Wayde's wife and Brett's sister; Brett and Heather's father, Irwin, known as "The General"; Robbie "Redneck," Agnes and a crafty team of designers, engineers, installers, cleaners and builders - creating one big, bold and dysfunctional enterprise.

As co-owners of Las Vegas-based Acrylic Tank Manufacturing (ATM), one of the country's leading and most successful builders of aquariums and two of Sin City's most imaginative businessmen, Wayde and Brett are tasked with building some of the biggest and most awe-inspiring tanks and aquariums for top celebrities, luxury hotels, Fortune 500 businesses, private homes and millionaire homeowners. These enormous and ingeniously designed tanks are filled with amazing aquatic wildlife from around the world. Not only do Wayde and Brett build tanks in Las Vegas, the team's clients are all across the country. Wayde and Brett create and install complex tanks at an array of locations including a nail salon, a miniature golf course, furniture and appliance stores, offices, hotels, casinos, colleges and universities, and bars and restaurants. ATM takes on more than 200 projects every year with tanks ranging from 50 to 50,000 gallons in size. They build tanks for celebrities, businesses and average Joes, and their aquariums and their businesses are filled with the most exotic, unusual, colorful and dangerous fish in the world.

TANKED is produced for Animal Planet by Nancy Glass Productions. Nancy Glass, Eric Neuhaus and Dean Slotar are the executive producers for Nancy Glass Productions, and Melinda Toporoff is the executive producer for Animal Planet. TANKED was developed by Animal Planet's Charlie Foley.
