Spike TV has greenlighted Catch A Contractor, a new half-hour unscripted series hosted by Adam Carolla who serves as a vigilant watchdog to homeowners who have been cheated by a contractor and left with an unfinished disaster. In addition to being a TV and radio personality, Carolla apparently also is a passionate master carpenter who easily identifies shoddy, inferior work. Each episode will follow Carolla, along with no-nonsense contractor Skip Bedell and his wife, investigator Allison Bedell, as they seek retribution for wronged homeowners. Carolla and the Bedells hunt down and confront unscrupulous builders, drag them back to their construction disasters, and make them finish the job right. Spike TV has ordered 10 episodes which begins production this fall and will premiere in spring 2014. Eyeworks USA created the series, with JD Roth, Todd A. Nelson, DJ Nurre and Brant Pinvidic executive producing.
