Homeland Security: The Reality Show

Yes, this is for real.  They are doing a reality show with the Department of Homeland Security.  It is replacing some TV show Mid-season that didn’t make it.  Doesn’t that seem odd? 

And I hate to admit this…but I plan to check it out..it is sort of like a Cops for Homeland Security. You know how I feel about my Cops!

Queue the music: the U.S. Department of Homeland Security is about to get its own reality show.

On Thursday, ABC announced a mid-season replacement show called “Homeland Security USA.” From Arnold Shapiro, the Emmy-winning producer of such documentaries as Scared Straight,” the network said the series will give viewers an unprecedented look at the work of the men and women at the DHS “while they use the newest technology to safeguard our country and enforce our law.”


The 13 hour-long episodes were shot entirely on location throughout the United States.


ABC says the producers were given access to the agencies of the Department of Homeland Security and has the full cooperation of Customs & Border Protection (including its Border Patrol); Immigration & Customs Enforcement; the Transportation Security Administration; the United States Coast Guard; and United States Citizenship & Immigration Services.


The first episode, “This is Your Car on Drugs,” is set to premier on Tuesday, January 6, 2009, at 8:00 p.m.

    I will definitely tune in. We are big “Cops” fans too…William knows the theme song (minus the rastafarian parts).

    To bad they can’t close the show with the tag line, “One-Thirty-Two and Bush. I’ve got’em at gunpoint”. DUCY?
