Spike TV wants to find the deadliest special forces operative around.
The male-targeted service has ordered 10 episodes of competition series Most Lethal from GRB Entertainment. The
series is expected to bow on Spike next summer.
The show, to be filmed at military bases around the U.S., will examine the realm of military mercenaries, ranging from non-active elite members of the Navy Seals to Green Berets, by challenging 12 to compete for the title of "most lethal."
Using advanced technology to analyze the weaponry, training operations and tactics, the series will be an authentic look at this covert world rarely explored on television. The participants and host will be announced at a later time.
"We are bringing together twelve of the best-trained combatants in the world for the most intense reality series on television," said Sharon Levy, Spike TV's executive vice president of original series, in announcing the pick-up. "The show will arm the viewer with information on training techniques and history of the special ops that viewers can't find anywhere else."
"It's not enough for them to be fit and strong and great with weapons," noted GRB CEO Gary Benz. "We're going to test every combat skill and tactical response in the book. Then, we're going to throw away the book and find out what they learned on the battlefield."
