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.

Sounds like CW is either desperate for ratings or will do anything to get them.

Well, why not? They gave that little crook and her weird family a reality show on E! and produced by mouthy Chelsea Handler, Hooker Rachel is rewarded with a Playboy shoot, Kate Gosselin gets rewarded for being a ****ty parent and making her kids work to keep mommy in fake tans, nails, purses, clothes, shoes and to make her a "star".. why not reward the wife murderer with a TV show, reward his girlfriend while we are at it?
But no one gets rewarded like the Wall Street Bankers for being crooks.

Matthew Broderick veered into oncoming traffic and struck an oncoming car and killed the 2 occupants. He paid a $175 fine. That's $87.50 for each corpse he created that day. He claims he can't remember the event. His girlfriend (Jennifer Grey) received a minor scratch to her arm but she suffered from the strange memory problem that Matthew did and was unable to answer police questions...

Typical Hollywood, they support Roman Polanski who admitted to having sex with a 13 yr old. The support Woody Allen who married his almost step-daughter. They love Charlie Sheen who shot a woman and can't keep his **** in his pants. The list goes on and on...

RickHurvitz immediately severed his association and relationship with Beresford-Redman upon learning of his alleged murder of his wife. He's gotta make a living. Upon TMZs report however, his show was immediately pulled. I'm disgusted you can go on erroneously reporting this crap and affect someone's livelihood this way...but then again...what do you care right?

Just shows the producers and directors have all got writers block - they can't even devise a decent program these days, it's all remakes of old series or films and this sort of crap in the genre of reality shows!! Guess if you f*** enough married men or women with celeb status or try to murder someone you're considered worthy of a t.v program instead of therapy or a job in the whorehouse!!!
