Today's announcement comes as Spike TV continues to evolve and develop its brand through broad-appealing original programming.

Socha also served as Coordinating Producer for Discovery Studios - West Coast, and began her career at William Morris Agency and CBS Entertainment.

Jeff Savaiano joined Spike TV in 2008 and has been responsible for series development and managing show production from pilot development through series post-production. He will continue to oversee the creative and day-to-day operations of upcoming Spike TV series "Catch A Contractor" starring Adam Carolla and "Frankenfood" with renowned chef Josh Capon. Savaiano's promotion comes after his involvement in network hits "Tattoo Nightmares," "Auction Hunters," "Deadliest Warrior" and "1000 Ways To Die."
