I've been watching SyFy's series "Face Off" (IMDB) since its first season debut. Recently, I watched an episode of SpikeTV's "Ink Master."

I'm not typically a huge fan of 'reality' TV so I was surprised to see how similar these shows were. The format was nearly identical. I was wondering if these two shows were from the same production company, despite being on two separate channels.

If so or not, who is producing them?


Face Off is a production of Mission Control Media with Michael Agbabian and Dwight D. Smith as exectutive producers (From SyFi Website Face Off About page)

Ink Master is a production of Original Media, with Charlie Corwin, Jay Peterson, and Andrea Richter as executive producers (From press release included on TV Series Finale website). Original Media is part of the Endemol reality-tv empire.

It looks like just a coincidence.
