Spike TV orders Dana White's mob drama pilot

Spike TV has ordered a two-hour pilot for a mob drama from UFC president Dana White.

White thought of the idea for the currently-untitled project three years ago and hired Chris Bertolini, screenwriter of "The General's Daughter" to pen the script. Emmy award-winning Walter Hill has been tapped to direct.

According to Spike TV's announcement, "the story revolves around the explosive fallout that occurs when a Boston mob boss abruptly vacates his position and various rival factions face off in an epic battle to control the streets."

White has experience as an executive producer for "The Ultimate Fighter" series on Spike TV, but this will be his first time for a scripted project.
