NEW YORK, June 30 -- Spike TV has acquired the first
season of the unscripted series, "Real Vice Cops Uncut," produced by
Associated Television International (ATI). Filmed on location in Memphis
and Orlando, the series features exclusive ride-along access with local
police agencies as they take down real-life criminals involved in the world
of narcotics, prostitution and gambling. Six half-hour episodes of "Real
Vice Cops Uncut" premiere on Spike TV starting Wednesday, August 6 (10:00 -

Spike TV vice president of programming and acquisitions, John Griffin.
"'Real Vice Cops Uncut' satisfies their need by plunging viewers into the
action right along with the squads."
Viewers are given an eye-opening look at the dangerous and
unpredictable conditions that real vice squad members are thrust into as
they protect and serve their constituents. "Real Vice Cops Uncut" lets the
viewer in on everything from the plan, to the execution and ultimately, the
arrest of hard criminals.
Viewers can also catch the action of "Real Vice Cops Uncut" at
Spike.com. Episodes will be available online following the weekly premiere.
"'Real Vice Cops Uncut' is an unprecedented television experience,"
says Jim Romanovich, President of Worldwide Media & Entertainment for ATI.
"We have been allowed exclusive access to various vice divisions to see how
their undercover operations really work without compromising the security
of its officers who have to remain undercover. In this series, you will see
all the action and intense situations you could ever expect. This is not
Crockett and Tubbs. There is no Porsche, houseboat, or pastel wardrobe.
These are some of the toughest officers I have ever seen doing the toughest
