NEW E! SERIES "SPUN OUT" GOES INSIDE THE ULTRA SEXY, CUTTHROAT AND NEARLY CULT-LIKE WORLD OF SPINNING
"Spun Out" Follows the Lives of Powerhouse Spin Instructors at One of LA's Hottest Celebrity Fitness Destinations, Cycle House, when Series Premieres May 2015
Los Angeles, CA. February 26, 2015 - The new E! series, "Spun Out," is a never before seen look inside the uber-popular, highly competitive world of spinning, following the "ride or die" lives of high profile spin instructors at LA's premiere spin destination Cycle House. The series takes viewers inside the lives of three powerhouse instructors who are virtual celebrities in their exclusive spinning world whose strong, driven personalities often clash both in their professional and personal lives. While the instructors struggle to keep their sweaty, dark rooms full, their loyal riders ferociously compete for attention and mixing business with pleasure is always tempting. Viewers will also be introduced to Cycle House management who constantly vie for authority and power, along with and up-and-coming trainees looking to gain the spotlight. Premiering May 2015, E!'s new hour-long, six episode series, "Spun Out," is a raw and real look inside one of today's hottest, most competitive fitness crazes.
"Not only is spinning a pop culture phenomenon, it's a part of the celebrity lifestyle that E! viewers love to follow and we're excited to announce this new series," said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President of Original Programming & Development. "We quickly learned at Cycle House that high-energy and hardcore describes more than just the classes. It's the personal lives and relationships where the real drama and competition begins."
Meet the Players:
Nichelle Hines - Cycle House's Chief Riding Officer and Lead Instructor. Nichelle is intense, unapologetic, direct and always gets her way... no matter what it takes.
As the lead instructor of Cycle House, her star continues to rise, but will her
relationships with management and other instructors suffer when her ego and impulsive behavior get the best of her?
Aaron Hines - Cycle House Director of Training/Instructor. Aaron is the "big man on campus" and with his female clientele, he's been able to get away with murder when it comes to mixing work and play. Nichelle wants to put an end to his flirtatious behavior and draws a very clear line in the sand between Aaron's personal and professional relationships, leading their tight brother and sister bond to come into question.
Nick Hounslow - Cycle House Apparel Director/Instructor. Nick is the glue that keeps this trio together but constantly puts everyone else's feelings before his to make that happen. Balancing acting, modeling, instructing, and fashion design, Nick learns to start looking out for himself and tell everyone (including Nichelle) that enough is enough.
Chad Tepper - Trainee Instructor. The self- proclaimed "alpha male" and his take-no-prisoners attitude immediately gets him in trouble with current pack leaders Aaron and Nick. While this sexy heartthrob pretends to be a hardened playboy, he's really looking for the next love of his life.
Shannon Decker - Trainee Instructor. Shannon brings a level of competitiveness not yet seen in a trainee before at Cycle House and while she wants to build up her personal brand, her relationships with the rest of the instructors suffer when her focus is strictly on herself and not the brand as a whole.
Sarah Mundo - Trainee Instructor. Sarah is a self-made woman who is unapologetic, passionate, outspoken and looking to make a name for herself in LA. This attitude will certainly draw clients to her classes and grab her some attention in the LA social scene but at what cost?
Adam and Lara Gillman - Cycle House Co-Founders and Co-Owners. Adam And Laura often find themselves at odds with their rock star instructors leading both groups to clash over what each think is best for the business and the brand. It's a double-edged sword relationship between management and the staff for without Cycle House, the instructors would need to find a new home and without the instructors, there would be no classes or riders. How much can each side give before they find a happy medium?
"Spun Out" is a perfect mix of sex appeal and pure ambition when egos collide and the competition between instructors, management and riders reach an explosive level premiering May 2015 on E!
"Spun Out" is produced by Tricon Films & Television with Andrea Gorfolova, Jeff Hevert, Ross Breitenbach and Andrew Perry serving as Executive Producers. Abby Ex and Nick Kreiss to serve as Co-Executive Producers.
