[via press release from TLC]



(Los Angeles, Ca.) POLICE WOMEN OF BROWARD COUNTY is back on Thursday nights and this time, they brought backup. Building on the success of the Police Women franchise, TLC's introduces UNLEASHED: K-9 BROWARD COUNTY, a new series following two deputies - and a dog - in the Broward County Sheriff's Office elite man-tracking K-9 unit. The action kicks-off Thursday, April 7 at 9 PM (ET/PT) with an all-new episode of POLICE WOMEN, followed by the premiere of UNLEASHED: K-9 BROWARD COUNTY at 10 PM (ET/PT).

A limited six-part series, UNLEASHED: K-9 BROWARD COUNTY is a candid look into the dangerous, yet surprisingly funny world of a K-9 unit - from foot chases and guns to bathroom breaks and dog food runs. Each 30-minute episode follows Deputy Jerry Wengert, his loyal canine Bali, and partner Detective Geoff Brown as they work together in one of the most treacherous and unpredictable units in law enforcement. Whether they are chasing down armed carjackers, fleeing drug dealers or tracking down an elusive cat burglar, they are tireless in their efforts to bring suspects to justice while maintaining a sense of humor. UNLEASHED: K-9 BROWARD COUNTY will air back-to-back premieres on TLC on Thursday, April 7 and Thursday, April 14 at 10 PM (ET/PT,) with the final two episodes debuting on Discovery Channel on Monday April 25 at 10 PM (ET/PT).

In addition, POLICE WOMEN OF BROWARD COUNTY is back Thursdays at 9 PM (ET/PT), with 13 all-new episodes revisiting the fast-paced action surrounding four female deputies at the Broward County Sheriff's Office. Each one-hour takes viewers inside the real-life drama of women in law enforcement as they juggle their personal lives with demanding and often dangerous jobs. From robberies to homicides, drug busts to domestic violence, these fearless women put their lives on the lines to keep the streets safe.

· Deputy Shelunda Cooper (27-years old): For Shelunda, being a cop is all in the family. Her twin sister is on the force, and she is also married to another Broward Sheriff's Office deputy. She works the night shift in the town where she grew up. Her nights are filled with robberies, assault and domestic disturbances. Shelunda majored in Biochemistry in college and is interested in becoming a Crime Scene Investigator. In her free time, she mentors teenagers who are interested in a career in law enforcement.

· Deputy Erika Huerta (28-years old): A first generation Cuban-American, Erika is driven to succeed at everything she sets her sights on.
