Press Center – Article (Pizza)

March 13th, 2008 by Administrator

Pizza (pronounced /¿pi¿ts¿/ listen , in Italian: [‘pit.tsa]) is the name of an oven-baked, flat, usually round bread that is usually covered with tomatoes or a tomato-based sauce and often mozzarella cheese, with other toppings added according to region, culture or personal preference. While originating as a part of Neapolitan cuisine, the dish has become popular in many different parts of the world. A shop or restaurant where pizzas are made and sold is called a “pizzeria” (from Italian) although the phrase “pizza parlor” is also used in the United States.



Various toppings may be added, most typically:

In some pizza recipes the tomato sauce is omitted (termed “white pizza”), or replaced with another sauce (usually garlic butter, but sauces can also be made with spinach or onions). In the Philadelphia area there are also tomato pies ¿ sauce only, or sauce with ripe Roma tomatoes and spices but no cheese ¿ and upside-down pizzas, i.e., the cheese on the bottom and topped with sauce. Pizza is normally eaten hot (typically at lunch or dinner), but is sometimes eaten as cold leftovers for breakfast.

DEA Premiere!

March 5th, 2008 by SPIKE Press



Six One-Hour Episodes Of New Unscripted Original Series “DEA”
Premiere Starting Wednesday, April 2 Only On Spike TV

Produced By Al Roker Entertainment, Inc.

New York, New York, March 5, 2008 –  Spike TV has ordered six one-hour episodes of the new original narrative series “DEA” which offers viewers a never-before-seen look at the inner workings of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Produced by Al Roker Entertainment, Inc. in association with Size 12 Productions, “DEA” premieres on Spike TV starting Wednesday, April 2 (11:00 PM – Midnight, ET/PT).

“Television viewers will get the same unprecedented access to the inner workings of the DEA as our camera crews – the raids, the risk and the danger,” said Al Roker, executive producer.   “This series is the real deal, exposing elements of illegal drug trade that you could not imagine.  When you watch ‘DEA,’ you will feel like you have gone undercover.”  

Spike TV was given exclusive access to follow a group of Special Agents and Task Force Officers in the DEA Detroit division as they risked their lives daily in the ongoing battle against illegal drugs.  The series follows Special Agents as they work cases ranging from street level dealers all the way up to international drug traffickers. 

“DEA” underscores the danger Special Agents experience on a daily basis in order to do their jobs.  Viewers will witness first-hand what it is like for Special Agents to go out on undercover missions and pose as drug dealers.  Spike TV is there when the DEA busts down doors as Special Agents execute drug raids that put their lives directly in the line of fire.   The series also takes a look at the complex relationship that DEA Special Agents have with informants, revealing the strange kinship they share with these criminals who see themselves not as arch enemies, but rather as opponents in “the game” of the illegal drug trade.

“This job is a calling.  We love what we do and you can see that on the show through the dedication and excitement of these agents,” said Special Agent Mary Irene Cooper, DEA’s Chief of Congressional and Public Affairs.  “Nothing else I’ve seen captures the day-to-day experiences of drug law enforcement work like this series.  You see the thrills, you see the anticipation, you see the chase, you see the reality.  Most importantly you see the DEA agents for what they really are, a close-knit team dedicated to an important mission at any cost, trusting each other with their lives.”

Spike TV/DEA…2

On spike.com’s “DEA” site, users will be able to view segments which showcase agents explaining and defining procedures from each episode and answer DEA-based trivia questions.  Each week users will also be able to view full episodes of “DEA” online after they have premiered on-air.

“DEA” is produced for Spike TV by Al Roker Entertainment, Inc. and Size 12 Productions.  Executive producers for the series are Al Roker for Al Roker Entertainment and Russell Muth and Hank Capshaw for Size 12 Productions.  Supervising producer for Al Roker Entertainment is Michael Kaufman.   Tim Duffy is Spike TV’s executive in charge of production.
