Murdered Woman's Husband Gets TV Show

5/19/2010 9:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0519_bruce_EX_3Apparently you can be a person of interest in your wife's murder and still get a piece of a show on the CW.

TMZ has learned, the CW network has just picked up a show, partly owned by Bruce Beresford-Redman -- the ex-"Survivor" producer whose wife was murdered in Mexico.

Beresford-Redman and his partner, Rick Hurvitz, pitched a show to the CW called "Shedding for the Wedding," a weight-loss reality show featuring couples who are competing to lose weight for their big day. 

We're told the casting director used to help sell the show was Joy Pierce -- the woman with whom Beresford-Redman allegedly had the affair at the time his wife was murdered.

The CW will announce tomorrow that "Shedding for the Wedding" will be part of the 2010-11 season. In addition to Beresford-Redman and Hurvitz, David Broome of 25/7 Productions is an exec producer.

A CW source tells TMZ Hurvitz ended his partnership with Beresford-Redman after the murder, but we've learned their company which sold the show -- Mindcrime, Inc. -- is still an active California corporation.

The CW source also told TMZ Beresford-Redman will remain a profit participant, but only if he can perform his duties as an executive producer -- which means he has to come back to the States when the show is being produced. But, we're told, Beresford-Redman will not be listed as an executive producer in the credits.

We could not reach Hurvitz or Beresford-Redman for comment.

This is an outrage that this pig should make a nickel after his wife's death. How about a giant friggin' boycott of everything on that channel? I don't care if he's in jail - his corporation will still make money and he'll get a piece of it. And his bimbo girlfriend may well be part of what led to the murder. Cancel this idea pronto CW or look out for the blowback.

The company name "MindCrime" Inc sounds like a name Bruce Beresford-Redman may have thought up himself. For seems the crime of killing his wife was in his mind for a while. He may have been thinking of the crime of killing his wife when he came up with the company name. But thought he would get away with killing his wife and go on with his new show. May his wife rest in peace, and may her spirit hunt him and drive him crazy. May justice be brought upon him, for the sake of her and her beloved children.

I'm surprised this isn't going to be on E!--they use those who are accused, jailed or convicted of crimes including Brandy who killed a woman on the 405 while tuning in her radio. She was hey, whatever, and is now on E! with her own show. The woman killed was married with two small children....

First you have the Hollywood robbers and now the Hollywood Murderer getting a reality show, well lets just turn off the TV so that we can make sure that this world is not turning into Hollywood and Do not get me into the subject of politics! This world is coming to an end! Live life with love and not hate and take the time to thank everyone you love cause soon will we not be able to.
