SPIKE TV TEAMS UP WITH RAY LEWIS TO HELP COACHES WITH ANGER ISSUES IN "COACHING BAD"

New Series Showcases Lewis And Anger Management Specialist Dr. Christian Conte As They Put 9 Coaches Through An Intense Program To Change Their Combative Ways

IRWIN ENTERTAINMENT ("Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew," "Couples Therapy") Will Executive Produce

Series Shoots In Los Angeles This Summer and Debuts in 1st Qtr 2015

New York, NY, August 4, 2014 - Good coaches motivate us, inspire us, and teach us the skills to win. However, there is a growing epidemic of coaches with uncontrollable anger issues spreading across today's sports landscape. From Bobby Knight to Mike Rice, too many men and women coaching American athletes, of all ages, often cross the line in what is acceptable behavior on the sidelines or in the dugout.

Spike TV has brought together NFL legend Ray Lewis and acclaimed anger management specialist and author Dr. Christian Conte to tackle bad coaching and anger management head on in the new original series, "Coaching Bad."

The show features nine coaches who have recognized that they need to change their combative and often bombastic ways if they want to continue in the profession they love. The coaches, who come from a variety of different sports from all around the country, move into a Coaching Center in Los Angeles for intense retraining and reconditioning.

This impactful and intensive program, designed personally by Dr. Conte and Lewis, will include three phases of transformation; assessing the coaches' baseline anger issues; working to create real change; and putting that change to the test.

For many of the coaches, their anger issues have also seriously damaged their relationship with family members and their current employers. For some, the retraining program might be their last chance to save their marriage or keep their jobs.

During the course of the retraining program, various sports figures will lend their perspective on the negative effects of caustic coaching. The list of guest speakers includes Chuck Pagano, Bill Romanowski, and Glen "Big Baby" Davis.

John Irwin, Damian Sullivan and Richard Hall are executive producers for Irwin Entertainment.

Spike TV has ordered eight one-hour episodes of "Coaching Bad." The series is shooting in Los Angeles this summer and will debut in the 1st qtr of 2015. Hayley Lozitsky, Vice President, Development, Spike TV will serve as the Executive in Charge of Production. Sharon Levy is Executive Vice President, Original Series, Spike TV and Chris Rantamaki is Spike TV's Senior Vice President, Original Series.

"Spike TV is thrilled to partner with one of the greatest players in NFL history in a compelling new series that will shine a light on the ever-growing issue of coaches and their anger issues," said Levy. "Who better than Ray to bestow insight and wisdom to these coaches after his storied career as a leader on and off the field during his playing days with the University of Miami and Baltimore Ravens."

One of the greatest linebackers in NFL history, Ray Lewis played 17 years with the Baltimore Ravens and was named to 13 Pro Bowls and awarded NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2000 and 2003. Lewis won two Super Bowls with the Ravens (named MVP in Super Bowl XXXV) and is currently an NFL broadcaster with ESPN.

Dr. Christian Conte was an award-winning, tenured professor at the University of Nevada, Reno, before he left the West Coast to return to his home state of Pennsylvania. He is a Licensed Professional Counselor, Nationally Certified Psychologist, author, and professional speaker who specializes in Anger Management and Communication. Dr. Conte co-founded a center in South Lake Tahoe, California, to work with people who have been convicted of violent crimes, and he is the creator of Yield theory - a powerful approach to combining radical compassion with conscious education.

Spike TV is available in 98.7 million homes and is a division of Viacom Media Networks. A unit of Viacom (NASDAQ: VIA, VIAB), Viacom Media Networks is one of the world's leading creators of programming and content across all media platforms. Spike TV's Internet address is www.spike.com.
