This hit series returns with more workers getting yelled at, insulted and sometimes even assaulted ... all before their first coffee break. The series showcases the first-person stories of a recurring cast of workers who must calm people down on a daily basis. From repossessing property to delivering court papers, the professionals featured in the show have been there, done that and lived to tell about it. The result is a blend of passionate confrontations and laugh-out-loud encounters. The new episodes will include workers who became popular with viewers during the show's run last October: Ron and Amy Shirley, who run the Lizard Lick Towing and Recovery repossessing company in Wendell, N.C., and Bryan McElderry, a process server in New York.

BAIT CAR - Half-hour series launching its third season with new back-to-back episodes Tuesday, June 8, beginning at 9 p.m. (ET/PT)

From the successful creator of Deadliest Catch and Ice Road Truckers comes this hit series about life on Texas oil rigs. With the economy continuing to struggle, the stakes are higher than ever for roughnecks, who can't afford to make any mistakes that might cost them their jobs or, even more importantly, their lives.

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.
