HARD CORE PAWN - Half-hour series premiering in late summer

truTV is heading to Detroit for an inside look at one of the country's largest pawn shops in this new series from RDF Media USA, Inc. For people in Detroit, the go-to pawn shop is the expansive American Jewelry and Loan, owned by Les Gold. Dubbed "the working man's bank." This series takes viewers into the sometimes-zany world of Les' establishment, where a wide assortment of people bring in everything from alligators to prosthetic limbs. Each pawn ticket has a story, and there are more than 40,000 stories in the warehouse to tell. The Gold family and their employees never know what to expect when people's personal items are on the line. As each episode of this fascinating series reveals, haggling over a price can quickly escalate into an all-out conflict.

POV PD (working title) - Half-hour series premiering in late summer

With exclusive access to the most innovative camera technology ever used by law enforcement, this series will totally immerse truTV viewers into all the drama, suspense and action experienced by police officers on the job across the country. The Taser Corporation has developed a groundbreaking technology called AXON - high quality cameras and microphones that are worn by the officers themselves. They record the officer's point of view during every chase, shootout, takedown or confrontation. Each episode of POV PD will be packed with their incredible stories, allowing viewers to step into the world of law enforcement like never before and witness all the action and conflict directly though the officer's eyes.
