A&E NETWORK GREENLIGHTS K-9 COMPETITION SERIES "TOP DOG" (w.t.) FROM THE PRODUCERS OF HIT SERIES "LIVE PD," BIG FISH ENTERTAINMENT

SERIES WILL FEATURE WORKING POLICE DOGS AGAINST COMPETITIVE CIVILIAN DOGS FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY IN A THRILLING OBSTACLE COURSE FACE-OFF

New York, NY - March 27, 2019 - A&E Network greenlights "Top Dog" (w.t.), the ultimate K-9 competition series from Big Fish Entertainment, an MGM Company, the producers of hit series "Live PD," featuring working K-9s and their handlers competing against their amateur counterparts. The new series will feature fan-favorite K-9s as well as new furry faces as they compete in multiple action-packed rounds on television's first full-run K-9 course. In each episode, these K-9s accompanied by their handlers, will be tested on agility, speed and skill and face-off against the country's best competitive civilian canines to be named "Top Dog."

K-9 cops, also known as police dogs, have been used in law enforcement for decades and are recognized as having a vital role. They are specifically and carefully trained to assist police and other law-enforcement personnel. Trained alongside their human counterparts, a police dog's duties include finding crime scene evidence, searching for and locating drugs, explosives and missing people, as well as helping to apprehend suspects targeted by the police handler. Seen as a tremendous help to police, K-9s are often on the front lines to help fight against violent criminals.

"The K-9 officers featured on 'Live PD' have received a tremendous response from viewers, many of which now have their own fan clubs and hundreds of thousands of Twitter followers," said Elaine Frontain Bryant, Executive President and Head of Programming A&E Network. "This series will highlight the important and dangerous work being done every day by these four-legged law enforcement officers, while also giving them a chance to show off their skills and have some fun with equality skilled civilian dogs."

Added Big Fish President, Dan Cesareo, "Competition is a very exciting new space for us and felt like a fresh and unexpected way of expanding the Live PD brand. We're thrilled to deliver more K-9 action and expertise to viewers and look forward to unveiling the course."

"Top Dog" (w.t.) is produced for A&E by Big Fish Entertainment, an MGM Company. Executive producers for Big Fish Entertainment are Dan Cesareo, Lucilla D'Agostino and Jordana Starr. Executive producers for A&E Network are Shelly Tatro, Sean Gottlieb and Brad Holcman. A&E holds worldwide distribution rights for "Top Dog" (w.t.).
