Nat Geo WILD Greenlights 16-Part Series "Alpha Dogs" from Executive Producers Jack Osbourne and Rob Worsoff

Series Will Go Inside the Training of a Special K-9 Elite Force Dedicated to Serving Our Country

WASHINGTON, Sept. 10, 2012 -- Nat Geo WILD Executive Vice President and General Manager Geoff Daniels announced today that the network has greenlit the 16-part series Alpha Dogs, which follows the training behind a special elite force of K-9s dedicated to serving our country. Executive produced by Jack Osbourne and Rob Worsoff of Schweet Entertainment, LLC, each 30-minute episode gains exclusive access to the kennels and trainers at Indiana's Vohne Liche Kennels, one of the largest police-dog training facilities in the country.

The Alpha Dogs have jumped out of helicopters to capture Osama Bin Laden and have tracked Saddam Hussein. They're in police departments, the Secret Service and every branch of the military. Now Nat Geo WILD follows their stories - from first bite to finding the bomb.

"Alpha Dogs will focus on these highly trained dog heroes that have muscle and smarts," says Daniels. "Our viewers will love to see the incredible drills and exercises the dogs undergo, follow the instruction process with their dedicated trainers who carry top security clearances, see the application in the field for military and police units, and even watch the fun they have playing fetch on their days off."

Osbourne added, "We are excited to partner with Nat Geo WILD on this project and show everything from examining how the dogs are trained to detect drugs, weapons and improvised explosive devices to finding a hidden cell phone in a prison cell, to focusing on other real-world situations in everyday communities."

Alpha Dogs is produced for Nat Geo WILD by Schweet Entertainment, LLC. For Schweet Entertainment, LLC, executive producers are Jack Osbourne and Rob Worsoff. For Nat Geo WILD, executive producers are J-T Ladt and Ashley Hoppin, senior vice president of development and production is Janet Han Vissering, and executive vice president and general manager is Geoff Daniels.
