Spike TV, Jerry Bruckheimer To Develop ‘Harvest’

Spike TV said it would partner with producer Jerry Bruckheimer and Warner Horizon Television to develop the drama series “Harvest,” the latest effort by the Viacom-owned outlet to pursue original scripted fare.

The pact marks Spike’s first scripted deal with a major studio and marks an ongoing move by Spike to broaden its viewership beyond its core male audience as other cable networks promote edgier drama.

“Harvest” tells a story set against the illegal market for human tissue, with a cemetery cemetery caretaker forced to pair up with his criminal father to protect his daughter.

“Harvest” is written by Ian Sobel and Matt Morgan. Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman are executive producers, and KristieAnne Reed is co-executive producer. Sobel and Morgan are supervising producers.

Spike TV has unveiled other scripted projects, including “Tut,” a limited series slated for this summer. The network recently announced script options for projects like “The Crusaders,” “Deep Web, “Red Mars,” “Emergency Broadcast” and “War at the Shore.”
