Harvest was a new series planned for Spike TV from Jerry Bruckheimer, but the network pulled the plug on the series before it even went to air. The series was slated to be the first scripted drama for the network in almost a decade.
Deadline revealed in a previous report on the series that Harvest would tell the story of “dedicated father, working two jobs to support his teenage daughter and give her the life he never had. By day, he’s a cemetery caretaker, by night he attends nursing school. However, when his own estranged father tracks him down and threatens to expose a terrible secret — he is compelled to partner with him in a black-market tissue and body parts trade.”
However, the network changed its mind on the series, and the reasons for that change were revealed in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter. Sharon Levy was brief about what went wrong with Harvest. She said:
“There was no lesson. They’re great people; it was a great script. Some things just don’t work out. That’s the business.”
