Charleston, South Carolina, -– Atlas Worldwide Syndications and Distributions and National Lampoon, Inc. (OTCBB:NLPN) announced today that their reality courtroom television series Eye for an Eye, has cleared the Los Angeles market for its September launch. The show will air on KTLA-TV Monday-Friday at 2:00PM. Eye for an Eye, which stars "Extreme Akim" (Akim Anastopoulo) and Kato Kaelin will make the move from a weekly to a strip on September 12, 2005. The show is now cleared in 9 of the top 10 markets and 75% of the country.

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 viewers have never seen. 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.

"This is huge and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with KTLA-TV and are appreciative of all the support they have given the program," said Michelle Swain, Vice President of Sales & Marketing with Atlas Worldwide Syndications and Distributions. "We expect the show to make a big splash with the daytime audience."

Eye for an Eye is currently airing nationwide on FOX, The WB, UPN, ABC and CBS affiliates. For more information on the series or for show time in your area visit www.eyeforaneyetv.com.
