Al Roker Entertainment is producing a new crime series for Spike TV entitled DEA. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a total of six episodes have been ordered for production.
The hour-long series will give viewers a rare glimpse into the world and inner workings of this very secretive lifestyle. Producers were given access to follow a group of special agents and task force officers in the DEA's Detroit division as they regularly put their lives at risk to work on illegal drug cases, involving everyone from street-level dealers to international drug traffickers.
Roker stated, "Viewers will get the same unprecedented access to the inner workings of the DEA as our camera crews -- the raids, the risk and the danger. This series is the real deal, exposing elements of illegal drug trade that you could not imagine. When you watch DEA, you will feel like you have gone undercover."
No airdate has been set at this time.
