AmericaÂ?s Hottest New Reality Courtroom Program to Announce Major Group and Station Deals at NATPE 2005

National Lampoon®, Inc. (OTCBB: NLPN) and Atlas Worldwide Syndications & Distributions announced today that their co-produced reality courtroom television series “Eye for an Eye,” has cleared eleven new markets, becoming the must-have syndicated show for 2005 from program directors and general managers across the country. “Eye for an Eye,” which stars "Extreme Akim" and Kato Kaelin and is slated to become a strip in September of 2005, last week cleared Chicago, Phoenix, Milwaukee, Greenville, Jacksonville, Little Rock, Springfield, Spokane, South Bend, Burlington, and the Tri-Cities.

“Eye for an Eye” captures the essence of justice and puts punishment front and center. A non-traditional, no-nonsense, no-holds-barred spectacle of trial and punishment, the syndicated reality courtroom show, breaks ground and takes small claims court to places unseen since the Spanish Inquisition. Unlike any other courtroom television program, “Eye for an Eye” features the powerful and enigmatic Judge “Extreme Akim” sentencing his litigants to “paybacks” with signature punishment episodes. Akim, a former State Prosecutor for South Carolina, appears alongside America’s favorite houseguest, host Kato Kaelin, and Sugar Ray Phillips (former middleweight boxing champion of the world) as bailiff. “Eye for an Eye” delivers a gavel crack unheard of in the canon of American courtroom television.

“Demand for ‘Eye for an Eye’ continues to be overwhelming,” said Michelle Swain, Vice President of Sales & Marketing with Atlas Worldwide Syndications & Distributions. “The show was a rating success as a weekly, and the new production is expected to bring in even bigger ratings as a daily. There will be major group and station announcements for the show at NATPE and in the next couple of weeks.”

“Eye for an Eye” is currently airing nationwide on FOX, The WB, UPN, ABC and CBS affiliates.
