Bio Channel announced it has ordered Female Forces, a new Cops-like reality series that will follow the ladies in blue employed by the Naperville Police Department.
Each episode of Female Forces will give viewers an in-the-squad car view of what it's like to work as one of the 18 female police officers in Naperville -- a Chicago suburb -- as they fight a variety of crime ranging from shootings and fights to public drunkenness and traffic violations.
Female Forces is being produced for Bio Channel by The Greif Company, with Gene Simmons, Leslie Greif, Adam Reed and Adam Freedman serving as executive producers.
Bio Channel announced Female Forces as part of an aggressive primetime programming slate that includes three other new original series.
In addition to Female Forces, Bio Channel also ordered the William Shatner-fronted talk show Shatner's Raw Nerve, The Chris Isaak Hour and Why I Ran.
