Before the miraculous rescue of the 33 Chilean miners trapped underground for more than 2 months, there was the tragedy of the 29 West Virginia coal miners who died in an underground explosion in April. Spike TV this morning announced a new docu-reality series from The Deadliest Catch producer Thom Beers that explores the dangers of coal mining through the eyes of Mike Crowder and Tom Roberts, co-owners of Cobalt Mine in Westchester, West Virginia, and the area’s miners, families and community members. The 10-episode series will premiere in April 2011. It will be produced by Beers’ Original Prods.
