Spike TV is set to air one of the most morbid reality TV shows ever. The show is called 1,000 Ways To Die and will air as a two-part special. If it isn’t obvious from the title, the show will focus on true stories about actual deaths.
Some of the topics covered on the show will include the effects of a rattlesnake’s venom entering a human’s bloodstream and the effect of Nitrogen bubbles on the body when first going under water and then going up into the sky. The show will include appearances by forensic experts, pathologists, toxicologists, and herpetologists. Actual death stories will be recreated through acting, colorful narration, and CGI.
Even though Spike TV warns that the show might be slightly disturbing to say the least, Spike also promises to throw in a few laughs. 1,000 Ways To Die was created by Thom Beers, who is also responsible for the Discovery Channel’s The Deadliest Catch. 1,000 Ways To Die Part I premieres on Wednesday, May 14 from 11 PM to 11:30 PM ET/PT on Spike TV. 1,000 Ways To Die Part II premieres on Wednesday, May 21 from 11 PM to 11:30 PM ET/PT on Spike TV.
