TLC Pulls the Trigger on A Compelling New Series Documenting the Fast-Paced Lives of the Police Women of Broward County

-New 10-part Docudrama Premieres August 6 on TLC-

LOS ANGELES, July 13 -- Some Moms pack lunches. These Moms pack heat. TLC introduces POLICE WOMEN OF BROWARD COUNTY, a new 10-part docudrama showcasing the fast-paced action surrounding a remarkable group of women working at the Broward County, Fla., Sheriff's Office. From gang busts to car chases to undercover sting operations, TLC's cameras capture the harsh and harrowing reality of females in law enforcement, with unprecedented access to the agency's inner workings.

Premiering Thursday, August 6,at 9 PM (ET/PT), POLICE WOMEN OF BROWARDCOUNTYfollows the lives of four women as they juggle the needs of their families with intensely demanding -- and often dangerous -- jobs. Each hour-long episode is packed with adrenaline, bringing viewers along for the ride as these women risk their lives to keep the streets safe. But danger is only part of the job -- off-duty, the POLICE WOMEN OF BROWARD COUNTY are mothers, sisters and wives who maintain homes and raise families. Each day is a delicate balance between their personal lives and a career that comes with real risks.

Meet the POLICE WOMEN OF BROWARDCOUNTY:

Andrea Penoyer: A smart, 26-year-old single mother with a spunky attitude and a passion for her job. The only woman assigned to South Florida's most effective elite street crimes unit, Andrea knows how to use whatever tactical methods are necessary to clean up the streets.

Julie Bower: A 48-year-old detective who raises three kids by day and solves sex crimes and missing person cases by night. Julie loves what she does and will not give up until the case is solved.

Shelunda Cooper: For this 25-year-old rookie, being a cop is all in the family. Her twin sister is on the force, and Shelunda is also newly married to another Broward Sheriff's Office deputy. She works the graveyard shift, historically the most dangerous, responding to unpredictable calls in a diverse seaside city. Whenever something goes wrong after midnight, Shelunda's on her way.

Ana Murillo: A tough, straight-talking, 29-year-old who will stand up to anyone except her two-year-old son.Ana and her team patrol the toughest parts of BrowardCounty, conducting surveillance operations and stakeouts, looking for drug deals to go down. In a world dominated by men, Ana is determined to prove she's every bit as tough as the next guy.

POLICE WOMEN OF BROWARD COUNTY is produced by Relativity Media for TLC. Tom Forman and Alex Rader are the executive producers for Relativity Media.
