Spike TV to air memorial special for fallen 'Cops' crew member

Cops crew member Bryce Dion died Aug. 26. He was killed by gunfire while filming the police responding to an armed robbery in Omaha, Nebraska. To remember Dion, Spike TV will air a one-hour special featuring the sound mixer’s work, Deadline reports.

Dion is the first crew member to die while filming Cops, a show that’s been on the air since 1989. “We are deeply saddened and shocked by this tragedy and our main concern is helping the family in any way we can,” Langley Productions, the company behind Cops, said in a statement after Dion’s death. “Bryce Dion was a long term member of the Cops team and a very talented and dedicated person.”

Pierce Brosnan partners with Spike TV for Crusades-inspired series

Spike TV, known for reality shows like Cops and Ink Master, is stepping out of the reality bubble and into history with The Crusaders, its upcoming series about the Crusades in the 12th century.

The network is partnering with Irish DreamTime, Pierce Brosnan’s production company, for the project and already has David Franzoni—who won an Oscar for 2000’s Gladiator—on board to direct. Brosnan, Beau St. Clair of Irish DreamTime, Mark Sennet, Brian Gary, and Craig Sheftell are set to executive produce. Michael Finch of Predators and Franzoni will take on writing duties and also executive produce.


Spike TV orders scripted event series 'Tut'

Spike TV is debuting the saga of one of history’s most prominent rulers Pharaoh Tutankhamun in a six-hour scripted event series coming to the cable network in 2015. Tut will tell the story of the Egyptian Pharaoh’s rise to power and his struggle to lead Egypt to glory, while his closest advisors, friends and lovers scheme for their own nefarious interests. According to Spike, “Tut opens up a fascinating window into a world filled with heart-breaking romance, epic battles, political backstabbing, conspiracy, jealousy, and even murder — proving his world was not far removed from our own — and that his reign as the youngest Egyptian king played out as a real-life drama for the ages.” READ FULL STORY

Network offers $10 million for Bigfoot proof

Spike TV is offering $10 million for proof that Bigfoot exists.

The network is announcing a new one-hour reality show, 10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty, featuring teams on a quest to find the legendary Sasquatch. The teams will include scientists, zoologists, seasoned trackers, and “actual Bigfoot hunters,” according to the network. The series will be shot in various locations around the country.

The prize, underwritten by Lloyds of London, is billed as the largest cash prize in TV history — if it’s actually awarded. The rules require the hunters to produce “irrefutable evidence” of the creature. Somehow we think that Spike is making a pretty safe bet.

The order comes a few months after Bigfoot hunters from Animal Planet’s Finding Bigfoot series (spoiler alert: the show has not found Bigfoot) got into a rather entertaining argument with TV critics over the legitimacy of their work.
