The docuseries, being produced by Thom Beers and his Original Prods, will follow coal miners in West Virginia while they're on the job. Despite the recent rescue of the Chilean miners, Spike TV says that this production has been in development for over a year.

Sharon Levy, Executive VP at Spike, said the following:

    "It didn't take a tragedy, and then a miracle, to get us excited about this."

Forty mining employees, and their families, will be featured in the one-hour show premiering in April.
