DESCRIPTION: (from Spike TV's press release, April 2012) Spike TV is sure to have an arresting May with all-new episodes of "World Wildest Police Videos," as well as the original series "Undercover Stings," both debuting in primetime. From the producers of "Cops," one of the landmark programs in television history, comes the new original series "Undercover Stings," debuting Tuesday, May 8 at 10:30pm ET/PT. Filmed on location in cities such as Kansas City, Missouri, Palm Beach, Florida, New Orleans, Louisiana, Savannah, Georgia and Las Vegas, Nevada, this new, original, half hour series gives viewers unprecedented access to the highly dangerous world of undercover police work - from the initial planning and set-up, to the dramatic tactical process and the final execution of the takedown. Whether it's undercover female officers faking a bachelorette party to sting drug dealers, or cops going undercover to bust prostitutes or big-time criminals - ride along with several of the top police units in America as they ply their trade and bust the crooks in the first series dedicated entirely to revealing the seldom seen world of undercover police operations. John Langley and Morgan Langley serve as Executive Producers for "Undercover Stings," while Chris Rantamaki serves as the Executive in Charge of Production for Spike TV.
