Spike TV Announces New MMA Reality Television Show...Spike TV issued the following press release today ...

New York, NY, April 3, 2012 - Spike TV and Bellator Fighting Championships are partnering with one of television’s most acclaimed producers, eight-time Emmy® Award winner Bertram van Munster, the visionary behind “The Amazing Race,” to create a cutting-edge new unscripted reality show. The one-hour original Spike series will premiere in 2013 and will showcase the fighters from the emerging mixed martial arts league, Bellator Fighting Championships. Details of the show will be kept closely under wraps until later this year.

“Some of the most physically-gifted and fascinating athletes in the world fight in Bellator, and I believe they make ideal subjects for an innovative new non-scripted series,” noted van Munster.

“We are thrilled to partner with an industry legend such as van Munster, whose creativity and ingenuity will help expose Bellator to an expanded new audience next year on Spike,” said Bjorn Rebney, CEO and Founder of Bellator.

“The concept of this ground-breaking new series will broadly appeal to not only mixed martial arts fans, but to reality show enthusiasts as well,” said Sharon Levy, Spike TV’s Executive Vice President of Original Programming.

Van Munster and Elise Doganieri will serve as Executive Producers for the new series. Levy and Tim Duffy, Senior Vice President, Original Programming, Spike TV, will oversee the project for the network
