EXCLUSIVE: Spike TV has greenlighted Kings By Nights, a comedy presentation from FremantleMedia. The project, about three guys who start a casino in their office at night, was written by Ben and Dan Newmark. The two brothers got their break four years ago when they wrote a dramedy spec script, Wilton, and shot it as a do-it-yourself pilot starring their friends. The footage eventually got them a script deal at the CW. Richie Keen will direct the Kings By Nights presentation, which will film in June. Spike also recently greenlighted the comedy pilot Playing With Guns starring Danny Masterson and Joey Kern.
