TNT is getting into the Jerry Bruckheimer business.
The channel has ordered an unscripted program with the working title of ‘Marshal Law: Texas’ from the famed producer. 'Marshal Law' will film on location in Houston and feature U.S. Marshals who work in the Gulf Coast Violent Offenders and Fugitive Task Force, in cooperation with the Houston Police Department (and other law enforcement agencies).
The program will receive a six-episode run later this year.
Bruckheimer will serve as executive producer, as will Jonathan Littman and Jonathan Nowzardan.
Bruckheimer's list of work is impressive. His highlights include Flashdance, Beverly Hills Cop I and II, Top Gun, Bad Boys I and II, The Rock, Con Air, Armageddon, the Pirates of the Caribbean films, the National Treasure films and the upcoming Lone Ranger. He also is responsible for the terrible Pearl Harbor.
TNT is increasing its focus on unscripted fare, as last week it announced 'Cold Justice' and 'Save Our Business.
'This program sounds interesting. 'Cops' was always a guilty pleasure of mine growing up and the focus of this program seems to be on a slice of life that most of us will never experience. I cannot imagine what it is like for these marshals, as they put their lives on the line against these sophisticated criminal enterprises.
