CMT greenlights two adventure series: "But first, coming in the second quarter are ITV's 'Danger Coast' and 12 Forward's 'Gator 911' (working titles).
'We did a lot of research looking at what reality programming our audience watched on other networks, and adventure shows kept popping up near the top of the list,' said Mary Beth Cunin, CMT senior vp programming strategy.
'Coast' follows Miami's elite Marine Operations Bureau as they protect the public. 'Gator' follows Gary Suarage, owner of Texas-based adventure park Gator Country, as he and his team rescue wandering gators. Both half-hours received a 10-episode order."
