Spike TV to air new ‘Disaster’ series

Spike TV has announced plans to air a new U.S. reality series called Surviving Disaster, with Navy SEAL Cade Courtley serving as host.

The show vividly takes viewers through catastrophic scenarios and arms them with the knowledge needed to survive the unthinkable, the network said in a news release.

Navy SEAL Courtley is the ideal host for this timely series, having faced imminent danger for a living, conducting clandestine missions from the sea, air and land that include counter-terrorism operations, special reconnaissance and unconventional warfare, the release said.

The first of 10 one-hour episodes is slated to premiere Sept. 1 on Spike TV.
