X-Men franchise director/writer/producer Bryan Singer is developing a drama titled World War III for Spike TV. Singer is on board to executive produce the series, which is set during time when the geopolitical balance shifts and a new global conflict explodes, causing the American heartland to become Occupied Territory. The Resistance movement is led by a man with a troubled past who inspires ordinary citizens to rise up and transform themselves into amazing war heroes.
The show was created and written by brothers Aaron and Matthew Benay, who are also writing the script for National Treasure 3.
In addition to World War III, Spike has announced four more exciting and imaginative shows. In the near-future drama series Secret America, the U.S. government has become an autocratic state due to the threat of terrorism. The storyline focuses on one family’s struggle to survive in this rigid and paranoid society.
Hummel & Howe takes a trip back to the late 19th Century Gilded Age in New York. The title characters, William Howe and Abraham Hummel, criminals trying to put their past behind them, ironically become the best criminal defense attorneys in the nation’s history.
The psychological horror series Bad Medicine revolves around a man whose pain is miraculously cured by a gifted but unconventional physician who specializes in clinical trials. As the man tries to help the doctor to find more breakthrough cures, he discovers deadly consequences stemming from the doctor’s work.
