Spike TV takes the plunge into its new original series, "Diamond Divers", picking up 10 episodes. The announcement was announced today by Sharon Levy, executive vice president, original series, Spike TV.

Diamond Divers features a crew of courageous divers and sailors who venture into one of the most dangerous waters known to man: the South African Skeleton Coast. Not only will this crew have to overcome some of the roughest waters out there and dangerous weather, but they'll also have to steer clear of greedy poachers and bloodthirsty sharks – all to find the endless riches that lie under the sea.

Produced by Studio Lambert ("Undercover Boss" and "The Pitch") and Executive Produers Eli Holzman and Stephen Lambert, Diamond Divers is a ten one-hour episode series. Chris Rantamaki, vice president, original series, Spike TV, oversees the project for the network.
