GSN ANNOUNCES PREMIERE DATES FOR ORIGINAL SERIES

New Original Series 'Family Trade' Set To Premiere On March 5th

Hit Series 'The American Bible Challenge' Returns On March 21st

Santa Monica, CA - January 09, 2013 - GSN announced the premiere dates for its new and returning original series for spring 2013: FAMILY TRADE, which focuses on the real-life competition of a modern-day barter system, debuts on Tuesday, March 5th with two original half-hour episodes back-to-back at 8:00pm and 8:30pm ET/PT; and THE AMERICAN BIBLE CHALLENGE, a studio-based game in which contestants compete based on their knowledge of the Bible, returns for a 2nd season on Thursday, March 21st at 8:00pm ET/PT.

FAMILY TRADE

Tuesdays at 8:00 pm ET/PT

At G-Stone Motors, a state-of-the-art GMC and Ford dealership in Middlebury, Vermont, the saying is, "We'll take anything in trade." And they mean it. Founder Gardner Stone will trade you a beautiful new car or truck for anything you've got that he thinks he can sell - pigs, a hot air balloon, coffins, maple syrup, dolls, a shoe collection. But Stone's son Todd and daughter Darcy, who work with him in the business, usually have very different ideas about what makes a good trade, and they have the unenviable task of re-selling whatever their father has bought. Each 30-minute episode will feature the outrageous, hilarious, hotly contested barter stories at G-Stone Motors - with a simmering stew of family drama cooking alongside. FAMILY TRADE is produced by Eli Frankel's Rogue Atlas Productions in association with Lionsgate, with Frankel as Executive Producer.

THE AMERICAN BIBLE CHALLENGE

Thursdays at 8:00 pm ET/PT

Comedian and author Jeff Foxworthy hosts this studio-based game in which contestants compete based on their knowledge of the Bible. Utilizing current as well as historical references, questions will be drawn from the rich, dense narrative found in the world's best-selling book. The contestants will share their compelling back-stories and each team will be playing for a charitable organization. THE AMERICAN BIBLE CHALLENGE is produced by RelativityREAL for GSN, with RelativityREAL's Tom Forman ("Extreme Makeover: Home Edition") serving as Executive Producer on the project along with Janelle Fiorito ("Extra Virgin"). Nick Stuart and Maura Dunbar of Odyssey Networks are Consulting Producers. Odyssey Networks is the country's largest multi-faith coalition dedicated to producing and distributing media that creates understanding among people of different beliefs and perspectives. Jeff Foxworthy also serves as Producer. Embassy Row's Michael Davies as well as J.P. Williams and Jennifer Novak serve as Executive Producers.

The first season of THE AMERICAN BIBLE CHALLENGE garnered the network's highest delivery in its 17-year history with 1.7 million total viewers for its series premiere and over 13 million total viewers during its run. The success of the show has extended to digital and social platforms with the launch of The American Bible Challenge Game for iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle and Facebook, which currently has over 8 million game plays, and over 500,000 users.
