Dyrdek MTV Debut Tonight

Rob & Big airs at 10:30 PM EST

Alien Workshop would like to congratulate Rob Dyrdek on his TV show; “Rob and Big. The new show on MTV makes its debut tonight, November 2nd at 10:30 PM EST. MTV will air 12 episodes of Rob and Big over 12 weeks along with numerous re-runs. Rob will make other appearances on MTV including on TRL and Cribs.

Rob getting his own TV show comes to us as no surprise. In 2003 Alien Workshop co-founder Chris Carter was asked about Rob in the DC Shoes book Agents of Change. “We wanted eccentric skaters. Personality coupled with talent makes the ultimate celebrity, and Dyrdek had the ability to wrap it all up into one incredible ball of energy. Rob’s energy will certainly translate to television.

Rob Dyrdek is an original member of the Alien Workshop team. The company was founded sixteen years ago in Rob’s hometown of Dayton, Ohio. Dyrdek was more than simply local talent and turned pro for Alien Workshop the following year in 1991. Since then Rob has had over 80 pro model Alien Workshop decks, designed countless skate shoes for DC, produced and directed his own movie called Street Dreams, appeared on the cover of numerous skate magazines, has been interviewed in USA Today, created the Rob Dyrdek Kettering Skate Plaza with DC and Alien Workshop, and founded the Rob Dyrdek DC Shoes Skate Plaza Foundation.

Rob has always approached skateboarding from an interesting and unique perspective. We’re excited about Rob’s latest achievement and proud of his many contributions to skateboarding.

Congratulations Rob.
