SPIKE TV EVICTS NIGHTMARE NEIGHBORS WITH NEW ORIGINAL SERIES “WORLD’S WORST TENANTS”

Series Follows Professional Evictor Todd Howard and Team as They Remove Unscrupulous Tenants from Their Property

Show Premieres Tuesday, June 12 at 10:00 PM, ET/PT

Los Angeles, CA, May 8, 2012 – Spike TV beats down the door of the most despicable, outrageous, dangerous and insane tenants in the new original series, “World’s Worst Tenants.”  Premiering Tuesday, June 12 at 10:00 PM, ET/PT, the half-hour series follows Todd Howard, along with his team of eviction specialists, business partner Rick Moore and wife Randye, as they forcibly remove problematic tenants from any of the residential, commercial and retail units in which they manage.

Howard and his team will take viewers behind closed doors into the most heated, high-stakes disputes between landlords and their tenants. Each mission documents the process and procedure that allows this no-holds-barred team to operate within legal guidelines to resolve each case on behalf of their clients.  In season one, viewers will see Howard, Rick, and Randye step into several tumultuous situations, including an organized illegal fight club, a marijuana grow farm, and an unlicensed cosmetic surgery clinic, amongst many others.

Born and raised in Spartanburg, South Carolina, Todd Howard, 47, joined the U.S. Marines in 1983 at the age of 18.  Following four years of duty, Howard left the Marines and relocated his home base to California, where he continued to work as a personal trainer and nutritionist.  In 1990, Howard met his wife Randye in Palm Springs, CA while at a bodybuilding competition.  In 1996, Howard was introduced to property management by his future business partner Rick Moore after selling him his home.  Soon after the two started their San Diego County based business, which currently owns and manages over 100 properties with a portfolio that includes commercial, resident, and raw land development projects. The series showcases the most compelling stories in his career through reenactments of many of the actual confrontations that Howard and his team have experienced over the years.

Spike TV will telecast 10 episodes of “World’s Worst Tenants,” produced by Barry Poznick and John Stevens of Zoo Productions.  Sharon Levy is Spike TV’s Executive Vice President, Original Series, Tim Duffy is Senior Vice President of Original Series for Spike TV and Jeff Savaiano and Chris Rantamaki serve as the Executives in Charge of Production.
