Courting All Action Addicts: Court TV(R) Launches Real, Exciting & Dramatic Non-Fiction Series That Amp Up the Action In Primetime

Network's New Action Block, 'RED,' Features Beach Patrol: San Diego(SM), Texas S.W.A.T.(SM), Hot Pursuit(SM), Anatomy of Crime(SM) and Cops

Five Shows, Five Nights, All Action: Monday - Friday 8:00 - 9:00 PM ET/PT

PASADENA, Calif., Jan. 11 -- In a strategic move, Court TV has developed a platform of Real, Exciting & Dramatic shows to captivate viewers looking for high-stakes programming. The new non-fiction block, RED, and airs weekdays from 8-9 PM ET/PT and includes premieres of four new series: Beach Patrol: San Diego(SM), Texas S.W.A.T.(SM), Hot Pursuit(SM) and Anatomy of Crime(SM). From hair-raising high-speed chases and real-life raids to risky rescues and fascinating investigations, the one-hour blocks of gripping, edge-of-your-seat programming pushes the envelope, satisfying armchair detectives and thrill-seekers alike.


Beach Patrol: San Diego(SM)

San Diego's lifeguards are an elite group: licensed not only to perform life saving water rescues, they are also sworn officers of the peace. Working closely with the San Diego Police Department, their mission is to keep the beach safe -- whether that means investigating cases of murder or missing persons, busting unruly underage drinkers, breaking-up fights, searching for underwater evidence, recovering bodies or performing dangerous cliff rescues -- it is their job to uphold the law along this pristine stretch of California sand and sea.



The investigative reality show that shows the tense, dangerous and sometimes bizarre situations that make up the shift of an on-duty officer is one of the most addictive in the history of television. Riding along with law enforcement as they do their difficult job in cities and towns around the country, viewers get a behind-the-scenes look at the excitement that no scripted drama can reproduce.


Texas S.W.A.T.

In this unprecedented non-fiction series, Court TV takes advantage of exclusive access to the live, on-the-spot, heart-racing action of S.W.A.T. teams from a dozen Texas cities including Dallas, Houston and San Antonio. Experienced war journalist Jeff Chagrin takes viewers along for the ride with these elite crime-fighting experts as they use the latest technology and tactics to handle every crisis situation, from defusing bombs to negotiating hostage situations.


Hot Pursuit

From high-speed chases, to dangerous crashes, this high-adrenaline caught-on-tape series features the most amazing police footage ever captured -- and much of it is taken from the dashboard -- mounted cameras in the police vehicles themselves.


Anatomy of Crime

This one-hour documentary-style series dissects the greatest issues in the world of law enforcement from both sides of the law, taking an unflinching look at everything from career criminals to prison punishment.

Court TV(R) provides a window on the American system of justice through distinctive programming that both informs and entertains. Court TV Networks is comprised of Court TV News(SM), which provides live gavel-to-gavel trial coverage in daytime; and Court TV: Seriously Entertaining(SM) in primetime, featuring investigative drama, expert reality and relevant non-fiction series. Court TV Networks is 50% owned by Time Warner, and 50% owned by Liberty Media Corp, and is seen in 85 million homes. (http://www.courttv.com or AOL Keyword: Court TV)
