SPIKE TV IS IN SEARCH OF THE WORLD'S MOST LETHAL COMBATANT IN NEW REALITY SERIES

"Most Lethal" To Feature 12 of the World's Best Special Forces Operatives in an Array of Combat Challenges

New York, New York - November 3, 2010 - Spike TV delves into the secretive community of special ops in "Most Lethal," a new one-hour non-scripted series in which real-life warriors from the top tiers of special operation forces faceoff in a grueling competition to determine who is the fiercest. The series will examine the shrouded world of these military mercenaries by challenging 12 of the most dangerous in the world 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 10-episode series, produced by GRB Entertainment, will premiere on Spike in the summer 2011.

"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. "The show will arm the viewer with information on training techniques and history of the special ops that viewers can't find anywhere else."

The competitors on "Most Lethal," ranging from non-active elite members of the Navy Seals to Green Berets, will have to withstand physical tests and demonstrate skills that go far beyond anything seen before in a competition show. "It's not enough for them to be fit and strong and great with weapons," said GRB CEO Gary R. 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."

The series will be filmed at state-of-the-art military facilities around the U.S. under the supervision of local evaluators and a handpicked team of top tier combat operators. The challenges are modeled on real world combat scenarios that will test everything from urban combat to evasion, from search-and-destroy to reconnaissance, and will include threat evaluation and threat elimination. Each location includes special terrain along with a unique set of combat challenges that the contestants must overcome.

Unlike existing military-based television shows, "Most Lethal" will deal with all facets of combat including the split second decisions that are critical to success and survival. Casting will begin in the coming weeks. A host will be announced at a later date.

"Most Lethal" was created by Tim Prokop, GRB's vice president of development, who will also produce and direct the series. GRB's international division will market both the foreign sales of the series as well as the format rights. Sharon Levy is Spike TV's executive vice president of original series and Tim Duffy is vice president of original programming for Spike TV.
