Spike TV offers news, docs aimed at men

May 6, 2004 at 2:24 PM

LOS ANGELES, May 6 (UPI) -- The U.S. cable network Spike TV is assembling its first slate of news and documentary programs aimed specifically at men, Zap2it.com said Thursday.

Keith Brown, recently an on-air correspondent for the PBS news and public affairs magazine "Now with Bill Moyers," has developed the network's non-fiction offerings in his capacity as vice president of news and documentaries, the entertainment Web site noted.

Sports will be at the forefront of the Spike lineup.

"Hardwood Dreams 2" is a follow-up to the 1993 basketball documentary from "Radio" director Michael Tollin.

Wesley Snipes will return as narrator and Tollin/Robbins will produce.

"Glory Days" comes from veteran HBO Sports producer Dan Klein and examines how ultra-competitive athletes live off the playing field, said Zap2it.com.

The BBC documentary "Testosterone Boys" focuses on amateur weightlifters and "Viva Baseball" looks at how Latin American players have changed baseball.

Spike TV is also developing "The Precinct," a six-episode series about police officers in a notoriously dangerous precinct, while "True Dads" examines the difficulties of modern fatherhood.
