Bellator Fighting Championships will soon be in the reality TV business, and they’ve hired an eight-time Emmy award winner to lead the charge.

Spike TV and Bellator on Tuesday announced the creation of a new one-hour reality show that is set to air starting in 2013 surrounding the MMA promotion and its athletes.

Details about the show’s structure or what it will be about is being kept under wraps, but the reality program will debut in 2013 on Spike TV, alongside Bellator’s move to the network.

The man in charge of developing the series is award-winning producer Bertrand van Munster, who was behind the CBS hit The Amazing Race and several other series.

“Some of the most physically-gifted and fascinating athletes in the world fight in Bellator, and I believe they make ideal subjects for an innovative new non-scripted series,” said van Munster.

Bellator hasn’t set foot in the reality show arena yet, and CEO Bjorn Rebney seems excited for the opportunity to show a new side of the business to fans on Spike TV.

“We are thrilled to partner with an industry legend such as van Munster, whose creativity and ingenuity will help expose Bellator to an expanded new audience next year on Spike,” Rebney stated.

van Munster and Elise Doganieri will serve as Executive Producers for the new series. Sharon Levy and Tim Duffy, Senior Vice President, Original Programming, Spike TV, will oversee the project for the network.

The unscripted reality show will debut in 2013 along with Bellator Fighting Championships, who shift their programming from MTV2 over to Spike TV.
