Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 6, 2008
Acclaimed action writer and director Mike Gunther today announced four exciting television projects in development from his production company, Gunny Entertainment. The shows: "Wreck My Ride," "Stunt Wars," "The Immortals" and "Heaven's Reign" are all slated for development in 2008.
- “Wreck My Ride” is an exciting reality show featuring stunts, rigged driving tests and a chance for participants to win a new automobile. Viewers will be entertained as contestants gamble their current wheels for a new ride or a bus ride.
- "Stunt Wars" is another exciting reality series from Mike Gunther and Gunny Entertainment where teams of Hollywood's top stunt and action designers and performers compete for cash prizes. Anything can happen in this unscripted high stakes, high risk, real-life drama.
- "The Immortals" is an action/adventure/fantasy television series from Gunny Entertainment where the earth is but a small prize in a titanic battle between beings from the time Kingdom of Dimensions.
- "Heaven's Reign" is a fantasy/adventure episodic television series that deals with the beginning of the "End Time,” when God, the Devil, St. Michael and avenging angel Simon St. Clair do battle on earth for the destiny and souls of humankind. Television will have never seen another show like "Heaven's Reign" in terms of gripping drama, action and compelling storylines.
“2008 is going to be a very exciting year for Gunny Entertainment and fans of high-octane action,” said Mike Gunther. “These four projects, while all very unique in nature and creative content, will leave viewers on the edge of their seats begging for more.”

Previous projects Gunther has completed for MTV include movie promotion specials for ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’ (2005), ‘Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby’ (2006), ‘Underworld: Evolution’ (2006) and ‘Ghost Rider’ (2007) all of which opened up number one at the box office thanks in large part to the advance promotion of the MTV specials.
