TLC to premiere new 'Police Women' docu-reality series on August 6


By Christopher Rocchio, 07/15/2009 

TLC has announced Police Women of Broward County, a new docu-reality series that will follow four female police officers as they juggle working on the force with the needs of their families, will premiere Thursday, August 6 at 9PM ET/PT.

Each one-hour episode of the series will follow the officers, who work for the Broward County Sheriff's Office in Florida, as they deal with everything from gang busts and car chases to undercover sting operations and domestic disputes.

In addition, the series will also follow the women while they're off-duty, living their lives as mothers, sisters and wives who maintain homes and raise families.

The four female officers starring in Police Women of Broward County are Andrea Penoyer, a 26-year-old single mother who works on an elite street crime unit; Julie Bower, a 48-year-old detective and mother of three; Shelunda Cooper, a 25-year-old rookie deputy who just married one of the office's other deputies and also has a twin sister on the force; and Ana Murillo, a 29-year-old with a 2-year-old son who routinely works surveillance and stakeouts.

TLC announced Police Women of Broward County in April when the cable network revealed it plans to debut 13 new reality series as part of its 2009-2010 programming slate.

The 10-episode series is being produced by Relativity Media and executive produced by Tom Forman and Alex Rader. 

Police Women isn't Forman's first experience with chronicling police activities.  He previously produced Armed & Famous, a short-lived 2007 CBS reality series which followed five celebrities -- one of which was former CHiPs star Eric Estrada -- as they went through police training and then spent several weeks patrolling the streets of Muncie, IN as reserve police officers.

Estrada enjoyed the experience so much that he has subsequently returned to the city to keep up his reserve officer status during each of the last two winters.
