Punch TV Heats Up Thanksgiving By Premiering Two New Shows

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- IC Places, Inc. (OTCQB: ICPA)  the angle of the rising sun and the hint of coolness in the air signal the arrival of another Thanksgiving Day, the American holiday that is most noted for the coming together of family and friends. Punch TV, a broadcast television network that launched in October 2011, is debuting its second season of original programming beginning on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 22, 2012 with new shows being released on a monthly basis thereafter.

After the turkey has been eaten and Thanksgiving football games have been cheered or moaned, Punch TV invites viewers nationwide to sink into the comfort of their sofas, turn down the lights, and watch two of its first releases for this season.

Punch will premiere the Punch TV original series, EROS: Emmanuel and Me, a true story of true love. When Emmanuel Djambissie, a young and wealthy Cameroonian businessman, comes to America, the love of his dreams and of his life is 65-year old Armentha "Mike" Cruise, founder and owner of The Aspen Group, Inc., a $50 million human resources management staffing company. This mini-series chronicles the soft and tender magic that true love generates, even between a man age 30 and a beautiful, older woman of 65. "The mini-series is filled with magical moments that inspire faith in the Supreme Being while reconfirming that we are never too old for love," says Stanford University graduate, Mona Scott, PhD.

Punch TV will also premiere its new reality series, A Taste of Hunney, real life, Los Angeles, California designer, Satai Gordon teams up with celebrity actress Patrice Fisher (Cinemax's Zanes' Sex Chronicles) to produce, market, and sell one of the most daring and provocative lines of women's lingerie available. This reality show reveals the personality conflicts, differences in lifestyle and business ideology, and variations in opinion about what is naughty and what is nice, that characterized the journey from conceptualizing the business to the product's distribution in more than 150 stores nationwide. Bringing both laughter and tears, A Taste of Hunney leaves viewers waiting restlessly to see which explosion will end this highly crippled partnership and, in doing so, will shove this unique business into the realm of the broken and the bankrupt. Will the partnership last? Tune into A Taste of Hunney on Thanksgiving weekend on Thursday at 10:00 pm, and Friday and Monday at 12:30 am EST and be entertained.

Punch TV currently airs in New York City (WNYN, Channel 39.2); Detroit (WBY33, WHPR, Channel 33); Houston (KVQT, Channel 21.5); El Paso (KSCE, Channel 38) and in numerous other cities nationwide.
