Get ready to wet your whistles once again. SPIKE has greenlit 20 more episodes of the original series, "Bar Rescue" starring renowned bar and nightlife expert Jon Taffer. "Bar Rescue" features Taffer, as he wields his nearly three decades of experience in the restaurant, bar and nightclub business to help give failing establishments one last chance to transform themselves into profitable businesses.
In "Bar Rescue," Taffer travels nationwide, targeting a different failing establishment in each episode. His approach may ruffle feathers along the way, but Taffer pulls no punches and values bottom lines above hurt feelings. Owners and employees he believes are standing in the way of success are urged to check their egos at the door, as he employs a proven scientific approach to solving the problems befalling bars.
SPIKE also announced that Taffer will be featured in the pilot "Hungry Investors." In it, Taffer teams up with two fellow restaurant industry experts to seek out "diamonds in the rough" -- neighboring establishments that are failing miserably, despite having amazing potential to succeed. The 'Hungry Investors' put the struggling restaurants to the test in a head-to-head, challenge-based competition and the one enterprise that shows the most promise of turning things around earns a significant cash investment.
