New York, NY, April 16, 2014 – Spike TV has ordered a 10-episode second season of its new original series, “Catch A Contractor,” starring Adam Carolla and produced by Eyeworks USA. The announcement was made today by Sharon Levy, Executive Vice President, Original Series, Spike TV.  The new episodes will be an hour long, up from season one’s half-hour episodes.

Season two will go into production this summer, and debut in fall 2014.

“Catch A Contractor” debuted Sunday, March 9, and, after seven original telecasts, is averaging 1.2 million viewers. The premiere episode was the most-watched debut of a Spike original series in nearly three years.

“We are thrilled to partner with Adam and his team for another season of a show that, in only a few weeks, has resonated with our growing gender-balanced audience,” said Levy. “Season two is certainly great news for the audience, and even better news for homeowners.”

“Catch A Contractor” is created and produced by Eyeworks USA (“Extreme Weight Loss,” “Bar Rescue”) with JD Roth, Todd A. Nelson, Brant Pinvidic, DJ Nurre, Andy Scheer and Adam Carolla serving as Executive Producers.  Sharon Levy is Spike TV’s Executive Vice President, Original Series, Chris Rantamaki is Senior Vice President of Original Series for Spike TV, and Jeff Savaiano serves as the network’s Executive in Charge of Production.

In “Catch a Contractor,” host and master carpenter Adam Carolla and his team, consisting of no-nonsense, expert contractor Skip Bedell and his wife, private investigator Alison Bedell, are on a mission to track down shady, evasive contractors and drag them back to the scene of their crimes to face the music and fix the disasters they left behind.
