Spike TV will preem Universal Pictures’ “Go Inside: Animal House,” an original one-hour spec featuring outtakes, behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with cast and crew from the 1978 comedy.
Spec, timed to the 25th anniversary and DVD release of “Animal House,” airs Aug. 24 at 9 p.m. (TNN launches as Spike TV in mid-August.)
Format meshes clips from the film with recent interviews with director John Landis, actors Karen Allen, Stephen Furst, Tim Matheson, Kevin Bacon and Peter Reigert, scribe Harold Ramis and producer Ivan Reitman, among others.
It also includes behind-the-scenes footage of star John Belushi.
“Go Inside: Animal House” is the first of three originals Universal Pictures will produce for Spike TV; the other two will offer inside looks at “Scarface” and “The Blues Brothers.”
