Mexican police: 'Survivor' producer held in wife's death

The body of the wife of an American reality TV show producer was found at a Cancun, Mexico, hotel Thursday morning, a Mexican police spokesman said.

Bruce Beresford-Redman, a producer on CBS' "Survivor," was detained as a suspect in her death, according to regional police spokesman Adrian Cardena.

Monica Beresford-Redman was reported missing by her husband on Tuesday, police said.

Her body was found in a sewer on the grounds of Cancun's Moon Palace resort hotel at 9 a.m. Thursday, Cardena said.

Beresford-Redman built a career as a widely acclaimed Hollywood reality television show producer. He helped develop the popular 20-season CBS show "Survivor," in which contestants compete against each other in a variety of extreme outdoor scenarios.

He was nominated for three Emmys as a producer on the show, but was last credited as a producer in 2004.

He also worked on NBC's "The Contender" and "The Restaurant," as well as MTV's "Pimp My Ride," according to entertainment media company IMG.
