The First 48
This is one of the most honest, well crafted series on television, and while I didn't have anything to do with its creation, I did executive produce two full seasons, concentrating on a refresh of music, graphics and writing. I feel lucky to have had the experience.
I developed the pilot and executive produced the series for this "ride-along" show with the auto theft task force in Newark, NJ. Pangolin did an amazing job both shooting at night and creating "personalities" for each of the trucks that patrolled the streets looking for stolen cars. I also had a great time out on patrol with a very memorable set of police officers who made me an honorary member. While the series only ran one season, I'm extremely proud of it.
I developed and executive produced the pilot for this heart-tugging series when I was working at A&E. The network made the decision to pass but it was picked up by WEtv where it ran successfully for five seasons.
