ATLANTA, GA — Seals Entertainment Company, LLC (Sealsco), in association with MotoWorld Networks, Inc., announces the re-launch of the flagship motorcycle sports television series MotoWorld – the most popular and longest running show of its kind. MotoWorld will return to television on TUFF TV – an all-new network aimed at targeted audiences who share a passion for specific pursuits including sports, lifestyle, and entertainment. TUFF TV will be distributed via cable, satellite, broadcast, broadband, wireless, IPTV, and VOD.
According to Sealsco Chairman and CEO Lou Seals, "We've enjoyed over two decades as a leading independent producer and owner of network and sponsor-supported sports, lifestyle, and entertainment content. Now more than ever, there are tremendous distribution opportunities for our programming, and we're excited to be re-launching MotoWorld, the biggest brand name of its kind. They’ll be related announcements in the near future.”
Sealsco has inked a unique 20-year distribution agreement with TUFF TV that will see MotoWorld re-launch in 2010. MotoWorld premiered in 1984 on the USA Network, and moved to a weekly format in 1987 on The Nashville Network. The series grew tremendously and ESPN signed on to distribute MotoWorld beginning in 1990. The series ran for 14 consecutive years on ESPN Networks, first on ESPN and later on ESPN2. In 2004, MotoWorld moved to Spike TV.
“Our first 20 years were groundbreaking, laying the foundation for all of the motorcycle programming seen on TV today. Our next 20 years will be just as exciting. There has been a huge void in the marketplace over the past five years, and there couldn’t be a more perfect time to bring back MotoWorld,” Seals added.

The Atlanta-based creative firm is one of the leading independent producers and owners of specialized television programming in the United States.
