TVTropolis dives into hit reality TV this month

This fall TVtropolis brings viewers an all-new lineup of thrills, spills and automobiles with America’s Worst Driver, Southern Fried Stings, All Worked Up, Total Wipeout and The Marriage Ref.

TVtropolis gets serious with the gripping realities of Intervention and I Survived…, and laugh-out-loud funny with Canadian original series Totally Tracked Down and TV With TV’s Jonathan Torrens. The fall schedule launches August 30, 2010.

The primetime block is jam-packed with more adrenaline-pumping series than ever before. TVtropolis introduces viewers to America’s Worst Driver – the series where coming in first isn’t best.

Each week, four contestants, nominated by their friends and family, compete in a series of driving challenges through the streets of their hometown. The first place contestant is named worst driver and their car is destroyed.

The show has been adapted by 16 countries, and TVtropolis is home to one of the most successful formats. America’s Worst Driver airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT beginning August 31.

Joining the fall schedule are two truth-telling, real-life drama series. The A&E Emmy® Award–winning hit, Intervention, profiles people whose dependencies on drugs and alcohol or other compulsive behaviour have brought them to a point of personal crisis. TVtropolis is also the exclusive home of I Survived…, a cinematic interview style series where survivors of unbelievable circumstances explain how their lives have changed forever. Intervention airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT followed by I Survived… at 9 p.m. ET/PT beginning September 1.


TVtropolis is serving up playful reality with two exclusive series courtesy of TruTV. Southern Fried Stings follows ex-State Trooper and addiction expert Jay Russell as he and his team take on tough and bizarre cases. All Worked Up goes on the job with people whose work entails delivering bad news or dealing with difficult situations where the recipient may explode in rage. Southern Fried Stings airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT and All Worked Up airs Thursdays and Fridays at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT beginning August 30.
