'Ring of Death,' a 'Spike Guy Movie,' to Premiere in HD

NEW YORK, Sept. 23 -- Johnny Messner ("The OC," "Killer Instinct"), Emmy(R) nominee and Golden Globe(R) winner Stacy Keach ("Prison Break," "Titus") and Charlotte Ross ("NYPD Blue," "Days of Our Lives) star in the Spike original movie, "Ring of Death," premiering on Friday, October 17 from 10 p.m. - 12 midnight (ET/PT) on Spike TV (http://www.spike.com/network/spike). "Ring of Death" premieres in HD and is slated under the "Spike Guy Movies" umbrella that will air throughout 2008. Spike TV's original "Spike Guy Movies" average nearly 1.5 million viewers each month.

"Ring of Death" is a gripping, explosive film revolving around an ex-cop who goes undercover as a prisoner to investigate the reason behind a string of mysterious and violent prisoner deaths. Burke Wyatt (Messner) is an ex-cop who is down on his luck. After a violent run-in on the job, he finds himself unemployed and his wife Mary (Ross) has separated from him, taking his young son (Uriah Shelton) with her. Unable to support his family, Wyatt is desperate to get his life back when he is approached by the FBI with a deal: work undercover as a convict to investigate a series of prison deaths in exchange for $250,000 and a job at the FBI. Knowing this is his chance for redemption, Wyatt immediately accepts the deal and sets out to get himself arrested. Once inside, Wyatt discovers a "fight club," masterminded by the scheming Warden Golan (Keach). Golan has set up a fighting cage complete with cameras, for viewers willing to pay the high price to watch and wager on which prisoners will make it out alive. Forced to fight like the rest to keep his cover, Wyatt must work to not only keep himself, but his opponent, alive. As Golan becomes increasingly suspicious of him, Wyatt realizes he must work quickly within the corrupt jail walls to take Golan down before he is put into a death match of his own.

"Ring of Death" is directed by Bradford May, written by David Rosiak and Matthew Chernov and produced by Randy Pope. Robert Halmi, Jr. and Larry Levinson serve as executive producers.
