SPIKE TV PARTNERS WITH JERRY BRUCKHEIMER

TELEVISION AND WARNER HORIZON TELEVISION

TO DEVELOP FAMILY DRAMA “HARVEST”

 

New York, NY, April 17, 2015 – Spike TV is joining forces with legendary film/television producer Jerry Bruckheimer and Warner Horizon Television to develop the original scripted drama series “Harvest.” Centering on a father who turns to a life of crime to protect a dark family secret, “Harvest” marks Spike’s first scripted deal with a major studio and is the network’s latest venture in creating big and bold entertainment for a gender-balanced audience.

“Harvest” centers on a mild-mannered cemetery caretaker who finds his small town life in jeopardy when his estranged, criminal father tracks him down. In order to protect his teenage daughter from the dark secret of her past, the caretaker teams up with his sworn paternal enemy to deal in the illegal tissue trade.

“Harvest” is written by Ian Sobel & Matt Morgan (“12 Monkeys,” “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series”). Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman are executive producers, and KristieAnne Reed is co-executive producer. Sobel & Morgan are supervising producers on “Harvest,” from Jerry Bruckheimer Television in association with Warner Horizon Television.

Sharon Levy, Executive Vice President, Original Series, Spike TV, Ted Gold, Senior Vice President, Scripted Original Series, and Justin Lacob, Vice President, Original Series, will oversee the project.

Spike TV will premiere its first scripted event series in eight years, “Tut,” this summer. The network recently announced script options for “The Crusaders” from Pierce Brosnan’s Irish DreamTime, Sennet Entertainment, Michael Finch and Academy Award®-winning writer David Franzoni; “Deep Web” with producer/director/writer Tony Krantz of Flame Ventures; “The Chairman,” based on the Stephen Frey best-seller; “Red Mars” from Vince Gerardis, Co-Executive Producer of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” based on Kim Stanley Robinson’s “Mars Trilogy;” “Emergency Broadcast” from Legendary Pictures and Thomas Tull; and “War at the Shore” based on Richard D. “Skip” Bronson’s book.
