New York, NY, April 11, 2012 – Spike TV is sure to have an arresting May with all-new episodes of “World’s Wildest Police Videos,” as well as the original series “Undercover Stings,” both debuting in primetime.
Premiering Monday, May 7 at 8:00pm ET/PT, “World’s Wildest Police Videos” is back, with new episodes that give viewers access to shocking and outrageous police footage never before seen on television. From high-speed car chases that turn deadly and bank robberies gone wrong to international hostage holdups, the wildest police videos from around the world are on display. Retired Sheriff John Bunnell hosts the series that is produced by Pilgrim Studios and Pursuit Productions. Executive Producers are Pilgrim Studios’ Craig Piligian and Scott Popjes, and Pursuit Productions’ Paul Stojanovich, Jr., Robert Ballantyne and John Bunnell, with Jeff Savaiano as the Executive in Charge of Production for Spike TV.
From the producers of “Cops,” one of the landmark programs in television history, comes the new original series “Undercover Stings,” debuting Monday, May 7 at 9:00pm ET/PT. Filmed on location in cities such as Kansas City, Missouri, Palm Beach, Florida, New Orleans, Louisiana, Savannah, Georgia and Las Vegas, Nevada, this new, original, half hour series gives viewers unprecedented access to the highly dangerous world of undercover police work – from the initial planning and set-up, to the dramatic tactical process and the final execution of the takedown. Whether it’s undercover female officers faking a bachelorette party to sting drug dealers, or cops going undercover to bust prostitutes or big-time criminals – ride along with several of the top police units in America as they ply their trade and bust the crooks in the first series dedicated entirely to revealing the seldom seen world of undercover police operations. John Langley and Morgan Langley serve as Executive Producers for “Undercover Stings,” while Chris Rantamaki serves as the Executive in Charge of Production for Spike TV.
