Spike TV Launches Unscripted Financial Help Series ‘Family Takeover’

Spike TV has greenlit 10 episodes of new unscripted series “Family Takeover,” the cabler announced Wednesday.

Hosted by Fortune 500 strategist Victor Antonio, the one-hour series helps families facing financial crises. Each episode will feature a new family, as Antonio uses his expert guidance and tough love to get them out of their monetary pit.

“‘Family Takeover’ is extremely relevant to our growing gender-balanced audience as financial distress can happen to any family,” said Sharon Levy, Spike TV exec VP of original series. The series is the latest project to join Spike’s broad-reaching unscripted programming slate, which includes “Bar Rescue,” “Ink Master” and “Catch a Contractor.”

Slated to premiere this fall, “Family Takeover” was created by Ugly Brother Studios, a Sky Vision partner. Tim Duffy and Mike Duffy, who will serve as exec producers, said, “This is a compelling and timely issue that touches the entire country. By teaching these families to run like a business, Victor has found an innovative solution that yields potentially life-changing takeaway for the average viewer.”

Production begins in Los Angeles this spring.
