Spike TV's Pancho Mansfield said that the upcoming Blade television series will have a budget of $2 million per episode.

"And it will be considerably more for the pilot," Mansfield said of the two-hour episode, which kicks off the show's first season on Wednesday June 28.

Mansfield said there will be a "balancing act" in bringing a feature-quality look to the show. He also noted that he would rather have fewer action pieces of a high quality than many mediocre action sequences.

Advertisers are responding to the show, Mansfield said. "I'm definitely optimistic," he said.
