Spike TV’s moving forward on its first scripted dramatic series in nine years with Harvest from executive producers Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman as well as Warner Horizon Television. Ian Sobel and Matt Morgan (12 Monkeys) are writing the 10 episode series which will premiere next year on Spike.
“We are thrilled to partner with the incredibly creative and innovative visionary Jerry Bruckheimer and Warner Horizon Television for our first scripted dramatic series in almost a decade,” said Sharon Levy, Executive Vice President, Original Series, Spike TV. “We are confident that Harvest will build off the success of Tut which delivered strong ratings and new viewers to the channel.”
“It is very exciting to have the opportunity to be the first scripted series on Spike,” said Bruckheimer. “This network is the perfect place to push the envelope with edgy characters and unique material. Sharon Levy and her team have supported and nurtured this great concept.”
Filming’s expected to begin this fall.
Harvest centers on a dedicated father, working two jobs to support his teenage daughter and give her the life he never had. By day, he’s a cemetery caretaker, by night he attends nursing school. However, when his own estranged father tracks him down and threatens to expose a terrible secret – he is compelled to partner with him in a black-market tissue and body parts trade.
