Posted by at 12:15 pm on January 30, 2012

Spike TV has picked up three new series that range widely in scope – Full Bounty, Tattoo Nightmares and Rat Bastards. Plus Spike has ordered 13 new episodes of the old Fox show, World’s Wildest Police Videos, which previously aired from 1998-2002.

“These three new non-scripted shows share a theme of larger-than-life characters in extreme situations where the high stakes are real,” said Spike TV’s EVP of Original Series Sharon Levy. “They are perfect complements to our upcoming launches of Big Easy Justice, American Digger and Diamond Divers, which have similar distinctive characters.”

Full Bounty

Full Bounty is a competition series featuring 12 aspiring bounty hunters who risk it all to chase down actual fugitives for their first time. Spike ordered 10 episodes of the series. The ultimate winner will win a position with a prominent bail bond and fugitive recovery agency.

Tattoo Nightmares

Tattoo Nightmares was only granted 6 episodes, so far, dishes on the  horror stories behind people’s unfortunate tattoos and their attempts to fix them. The tattoos tales range from the hilarious to downright disturbing, with re-enactments that will show how these people got their ink. The show’s contestants will then go under the needle to remove or cover up the tats.

Rat Bastards

Spike also  six episodes of Rat Bastards, which centers on the adventures of a group of Louisiana men, dubbed the “Cajun Commandos,” who hunt down a nasty invasive species of giant swamp rats wreaking havoc on the Mississippi wetlands
