Spike TV Gets Burnett Cowboy Reality Competition Series

Think of it as "Survivor: Rodeo."

Spike TV has a deal for a new eight-episode one-hour series from Mark Burnett, the producer behind Survivor and The Apprentice.

A dozen cowboys will ride horses, bucking broncs and bulls in a weekly elimination contest winnowing them down to a single champion, who will take home the deed to a "spectacular" Wyoming ranch.

Burnett will be executive producer on the show, which debuts Jan. 29 at 11 p.m.

The show is the first fruits of

a production pact between AEG and Mark Burnett Productions.
