Spike TV embarks on its next phase of creating original programming with its first scripted development slate since the network launched in August 2003. "This is a watershed moment for the network," says Pancho Mansfield, executive vice president of original programming, Spike TV. "We are developing compelling entertainment for men from some of the best creators in film and television today."

Projects in development are as follows:

-- AMPED: This show is set in present day Los Angeles where police confront a mysterious outbreak that has genetically altered some citizens with often violent and disturbing consequences. Everyday citizens and family members must confront each other as the outbreak advances in their community.

-- THE BIG EMPTY: This gritty drama portrays the reality of ordinary P.I.s caught in the middle of an unsavory world.

-- PARADISE SALVAGE: This show features two childhood friends - a cop and a history professor -who decide to pursue an adventure by taking over a salvage company in Florida. Their world is turned upside down when they find an old captain's diary that points to a lost treasure.

-- CRYSTAL METH COWBOYS: A look at a young, by-the-book Boston cop who takes up residence in a small New Mexico town. He partners with a hard-edged sheriff who knows the unspoken rules of the vast and violent desert.

-- UNTITLED JAMES DE MONACO/SCOTT BRAZIL PROJECT: A drama about a bank heist that goes terribly awry.

-- FRESH TRACKS: Four close guy friends in their early twenties leave behind their bland lives to build a race car and pursue their dream to compete in NASCAR. In their journey, they face cut throat racing, underhanded promoters and their own personal demons.

-- THE BRIDGE: A "48 Hours"-style cop drama about two homicide detectives on each side of the El Paso/Juarez border.

-- FULL RIDE: Based on Elwood Reid's behind-the-scenes book which looks at a star Division I college football player, complete with unforgiving coaches, violent field practice, and patronizing professors.

-- TEQUILA COUNTY: An Iraqi war hero returns home with hopes of leading a quiet life as the sheriff of a small town, but encounters a level of murder and corruption that rivals some of the battles that he fought overseas.
