(Newser) – Got your fill of mining coverage? If not, then Spike TV has some extremely good news: It will launch a reality show on coal miners in April, says the Hollywood Reporter. Coal is from the makers of the Deadliest Catch and will focus on a mine in West Virginia. “We’ve tapped into something that people are passionate about," says a Spike exec. "This is a topic the world is interested in.” As for those rescued Chileans, the first three are going home, notes the BBC.
