1000 Ways to Die

Do you enjoy "Deadliest Catch"? Are you riveted by "Ice Road Truckers"? Then "1000 Ways to Die" may be another show you'll enjoy. "1000 Ways to Die" is being developed by Original Productions for SpikeTV.

Never heard of the show? I'm not surprised. Nothing's been announced yet. So how do I know? My usual sources.

On May 17, 2007 Original Productions registered the domain, Don't bother clicking through yet. You won't find anything.

On June 21, 2007 Network Enterprises, Inc. filed documents with the USPTO to protect the word mark, 1000 Ways to Die, for "entertainment services in the nature of television series." If you do a bit of research, you'll find that Network Enterprises, Inc. is the applicant for many SpikeTV shows during the past few years.

Excellent. So now we know that "1000 Ways to Die" is likely being developed by Original Productions for SpikeTV.

I sent an e-mail to Thom Beers, the CEO of Original Productions, requesting additional information. Mr. Beers responded quickly, but he really only confirmed that a project with that name exists without confirming nor denying its association with SpikeTV. If I hear more, I'll definitely update this post.
