The network has picked up 20 episodes of Repo Games from Jersey Shore producer SallyAnn Salsano's 495 Productions, which begins production in February. The game show series follows two repo men as they give debtors a last chance to keep their cars by correcting answering a series of questions.
Spike has picked up 10 episodes of Bar Rescue, in which restaurant and bar consultant Jon Taffer transforms failing bars into profitable businesses. The series is from Biggest Loser producers JD Roth and Todd A. Nelson for 3 Ball Productions/Eyeworks US and begins shooting in April.
"The guys featured on Bar Rescue and Repo Games share that same authentic, real-life persona that will resonate with Spike's expanding audience," said Sharon Levy, Spike TV's executive vice president, original series and animation. "We are thrilled to partner with the incredibly creative production teams that developed The Jersey Shore and The Biggest Loser to bring these unique concepts to life."
