GSN BRINGS TOP NAMES FROM THE RETAIL WORLD TO ITS NEW VISUAL MERCHANDISING COMPETITION SERIES "WINDOW WARRIORS" PREMIERING TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 15

Episode Promotional Partners Include Macy's, Anthropologie, Hot Topic, Lush and Sprinkles; New Skill-Based Competition Series Combines Art and Commerce As Top Retail Window Designers Compete for $100,000

Macy's and Retail Property Owner GGP Provide Prizing, and Selected Winning Windows to be Re-Created at GGP Properties Nationwide

October 5, 2016, SANTA MONICA, Calif. - GSN, the leader in game shows and competitive entertainment, announced today that many of the biggest names in retail have lined up as promotional partners for the new skill-based competition series WINDOW WARRIORS, hosted by actress Garcelle Beauvais ("Hollywood Today Live," "Spider-Man: Homecoming"). GSN partnered with General Growth Properties (GGP), the owner and operator of 128 high-quality retail properties throughout the United States, including include Tysons Galleria in Washington D.C., Glendale Galleria in Los Angeles and Water Tower Place in Chicago. Top retail brands, including Macy's, Anthropologie, Hot Topic, Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics and Sprinkles will also serve as partners. Michaels, North America's largest arts and crafts specialty retailer, also provided many of the materials used to create the windows for the show.

WINDOW WARRIORS, premiering Tuesday, November 15 at 9pm ET/PT, lifts the curtain on the intensely competitive and theatrical world of visual merchandising. This new series brings the worlds of art and commerce together as the country's most talented window designers are challenged to conceive jaw-dropping displays each week. In each episode, the contestants will be given a new theme, correlating with one of these top retail brands and will be competing to stay in the competition, as one person will be sent home each week, until the final top designer remains. Some of the winning windows will also be re-created at specially-selected GGP properties after air.

From the festive, to the luxurious, to the shockingly unexpected, these artists must push their creativity to the limits each week, in order to stay in the game and win the $100,000 grand prize. In addition to the cash prize, the winner will receive a career-changing opportunity to design and develop amenities and platforms that elevate the customer experience at GGP properties, the opportunity to design a holiday display at Macy's New York City flagship Herald Square store and will be featured in design:retail magazine.

"This series is a celebration of the brick-and-mortar shopping experience," explains Amy Introcaso-Davis, EVP programming and production at GSN. "These talented window designers stand out not only for their artistic flair, but for their ability to work products into their creations in a way that encourages the consumer to head into the store and shop."

"Going to see the store windows at Christmastime on New York's Fifth Avenue or Chicago's Michigan Avenue has been a part of Americana for almost a century," said executive producer Michael Levitt. "Many people are not aware that window designing is a profession. We wanted TV viewers to see the modern-day artists who are keeping this art form alive, not only in the big cities, but in many of your favorite malls across the country."

WINDOW WARRIORS comes from Michael Levitt Productions, the team behind GSN's most-watched original series ever, SKIN WARS. Executive producers include Michael Levitt ("Skin Wars," "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List," "Billboard Music Awards"), Jill Goularte and Liz Cook. Award-winning Visual Merchandising icon Paul Olszewski is consulting producer and Douglas Little, a master in the world of visual merchandising, also serves as a judge and creative consultant for the show.
