Esquire Network Renews 'Spotless'

Esquire Network will bring back its freshman drama series Spotless for a second season, the men’s-targeted network announced Wednesday.

The series, which follows two brothers who get tangled up with organized crime while operating a crime scene cleaning business, launched last year as the network’s first scripted series.

“Esquire Network proudly broke the genre barriers offering a series that combined elements of danger and drama with a sharp satirical edge,” said Matt Hanna, Executive Vice President of Original Programming for Esquire Network in a statement. “We are thrilled to once again partner with Tandem Productions and look forward to the wild ride of season two as we continue to gain momentum as a network and reach new heights.”
