Spike TV Cancels Jerry Bruckheimer’s ‘Harvest’

Following a 10-episode pickup of Jerry Bruckheimer’s “Harvest,” Spike TV has axed the series before it got to production. According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Spike extended unrealistic offers to high-profile actors,” which led many of said actors to turn down the leading roles. Warner Horizon plans to take the series to another network.

The series was slated to be the cable channel’s first scripted deal with a major studio. Spikes hoped to draw in a wider viewership with the project, which follows a cemetery caretaker forced to participate in an illegal market for human tissue with his criminal father so that he can protect his daughter.

Ian Sobel and Matt Morgan penned “Harvest.” Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman were attached as executive producers, with KristieAnne Reed as co-executive producer.

Spike TV has other scripted projects  in the works, including “Tut,” which stars Ben Kingsley. “Bad Medicine,” “Hummel & Howe,” “Mr. In Between,” “Secret America,” “World War III,” “When the Levee Breaks,” “The Crusaders,” “Deep Web,” “The Chairman,” “Red Mars,” “Emergency Broadcast” and “War at the Shore” are among the other scripted projects recently optioned.
