Spike TV is flanking its original series Deadliest Warrior with an online discussion show.
"Deadliest Warrior-The Aftermath" will be available on Spike.com at 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday following its forebear's debut on the linear service at 10 p.m.
In each episode of the "Deadliest Warrior - The Aftermath," Deadliest Warrior host and expert Kieron Elliot will discuss with other authorities the unanswered questions and counter arguments submitted by the fans. The show will explore the controversies stirred up by the "match-ups" between some of civilization's most infamous warriors. The conclusion of each episode will feature a sneak peek of next week's episode on Spike TV and allow the "The Aftermath" panel to make their predictions on the next battle.
Through three telecasts, Deadliest Warrior has averaged 1.7 million viewers, making it the most-watched original series on Spike. Moreover, Spike.com has drawn some 660,000 video views tied to the series and has posted consecutive double digit growth in weekly audience size.
Deadliest Warrior pits some of the most feared warriors the world has ever known -- viking vs. samurai, ninja vs. Spartain, Willam Wallace vs. Shaka Zulu -- in battles against one another. Using 21st century science and the latest in CGI technology, each episode enlists warrior-specific world-class fighters and experts to provide insight into what makes these combatants tick, analyzing every facet of their unique skills of destruction, culminating in a head-to-head final fight between two legends of the battlefield that will produce the deadliest warrior.
"Deadliest Warrior has captured an enthusiastic and highly engaged audience," said Jon Slusser, senior vice president, Spike Digital Entertainment, in a statement. "The series is inspiring widespread debate online and is receiving an unprecedented number of comments on Spike.com. ‘Deadliest Warrior - The Aftermath' will harness the enthusiasm of this community and transform their lively debate into a video round table."
