Spike Green Lights Two Original Series And Announces Second Season of “DEA”

October 16th, 2008 by SPIKE Press

SPIKE TV GREEN LIGHTS ORIGINAL SERIES
“SURVIVING DISASTER” AND “DEADLIEST WARRIOR” FOR 2009

Network Announces Season 2 Renewal For “DEA”

New York, NY, October 16 2008 – Spike TV has given the green light to two of its most ambitious new projects for series and has renewed its successful original series, “DEA,” all slated to premiere in 2009.  Production on the new distinctive original series “Surviving Disaster” (working title) and “Deadliest Warrior,” and season two of “DEA” will begin this fall, it was announced today by Sharon Levy, senior vice president of original series for Spike TV. 

“Spike TV is taking action-packed programming to an entirely new level,” says Levy.  “We’re thrilled to be in business with some of the most talented and successful producers in the industry and bring this programming to viewers.”

In “Surviving Disaster,” Spike TV presents a series, unlike any other on television, that may actually save a life.  What’s the best way to survive an earthquake, shark attack, plane crash, bioterrorism, hostage crisis or deadly tsunami?  For the sake of viewers and their families, it’s imperative to know how to survive disaster, both natural and man-made, and former Navy SEAL Cade Courtley (Mark Burnett’s “Combat Missions”) is just the guy to lead viewers to safety in this elaborate step-by-step weekly series.  With some of the most elaborate disaster simulations ever created for television, “Surviving Disaster” is a look at how people can arm themselves with knowledge that could save their lives in the event of disaster. 

Ten one-hour episodes of “Surviving Disaster” will be produced by Wall to Wall Media (“Man On a Wire,” “Frontier House,” “Spymaster,” “Ancient Egyptians”) with Alex Graham and Jonathan Hewes serving as executive producers. 

With the series “Deadliest Warrior,” Spike TV will settle once and for all the age-old bar bet of who is history’s ultimate fighting machine.  Each week, this original, action-packed yet historical narrative series will pit two of the most feared warriors civilization has ever known against one another.  Who would come out the victor in a battle of Genghis Kahn’s Mongol Barbarians versus Viking warriors or Roman gladiators against Japanese samurai?  Utilizing the latest in CGI technology, Spike TV will enlist experts on these warriors to provide insight into what made these feared combatants tick and analyze everything from their weaponry to their unique skills of destruction.  Each episode will culminate when the two legends of the battlefield go head-to-head in a final fight that will produce the deadliest warrior.

Nine one-hour episodes of “Deadliest Warrior” will be produced by Morningstar Entertainment (“Battleground: The Art of War,” “Manhunters – Fugitive Task Force”) with Gary Tarpanian and Paninee Theeranuntawat serving as executive producers.

“DEA” returns for a second season on Spike TV as the network once again was given exclusive access to follow a group of Special Agents and Task Force Officers in the DEA as they put their lives on the line in a daily battle against the ruthless illegal drug industry with individuals ranging from street level dealers all the way up to international traffickers.   Production begins this fall for season two in a city to be announced at a later date.

“DEA” averaged 1.2 million viewers for its premiere season (April-May, 2008) and gave the network a 132% increase in viewership in its timeslot.  “DEA” ranked #4 in all of cable in its timeslot among Men 18-34 and 18-49.
 
Nine new episodes of “DEA” will be produced for Spike TV by Al Roker Entertainment, Inc. and Size 12 Productions.  Executive producers for the series are Al Roker for Al Roker Entertainment and Russell Muth and Hank Capshaw for Size 12 Productions.  Co-executive producer for Al Roker Entertainment is Michael Kaufman.   Tim Duffy is Spike TV’s executive in charge of production.

Spike TV is available in 97.3 million homes and is a division of MTV Networks.  A unit of Viacom (NYSE: VIA, VIA.B), MTV Networks is one of the world’s leading creators of programming and content across all media platforms.

SPIKE TV ORDERS TWO-HOUR PILOT FROM MGM
TO BE DIRECTED BY WALTER HILL
Original Scripted Pilot Focuses On Irish Gang Warfare in Boston

New York, NY, October 8, 2008 - Spike TV has ordered an untitled two-hour pilot based on the Irish Mob in Boston from MGM Television Entertainment (MGM), and will go into production late this fall with an option to go to series.  Emmy® and DGA award-winning director Walter Hill will serve as director of the pilot. Chris Bertolini (“The General’s Daughter,” Battle: Los Angeles) wrote the script.  The original drama is executive produced by Ultimate Fighting Championship® President Dana White and Tom Lynch and the Tom Lynch Company.

Scheduled to shoot on location in Boston, the story revolves around the explosive fallout that occurs when a Boston mob boss abruptly vacates his position and various rival factions face off in an epic battle to control the streets.

The production team also includes Gary Stephenson and Richard Bullock who will serve as producers.  Sheila Jaffe (“The Sopranos,” “Entourage”) will serve as casting director.

During the course of his remarkable career, Hill has been a writer, director and producer on projects ranging from classic westerns to action-packed thrillers and buddy comedies, all marked with his visceral style.  Hill most recently directed AMC’s critically-acclaimed and Emmy®-award winning miniseries “Broken Trail,” for which he won the Emmy Award® for producing and was nominated for Outstanding Directing For a Miniseries, Movie or Dramatic Special. Hill won the DGA award for “Broken Trail,” and was honored with Emmy and DGA awards for his work on the pilot of the groundbreaking neo-western “Deadwood” for HBO.  Hill is represented by ICM.

This movie marks the first ever scripted project for White, who helms the world’s fastest growing sports organization, the UFC, and hosts Spike TV’s wildly popular series, “The Ultimate Fighter.” 
Bill McGoldrick, senior vice president, development, is Spike TV’s executive in charge of production.  For MGM, production is being managed by Chris Ottinger, Executive Vice President, Worldwide Television Group.
