A&E PREMIERES NEW ORIGINAL REAL-LIFE SERIES "BORDERTOWN: LAREDO"

TEN-EPISODE SERIES DOCUMENTS SMALL TEAM OF LOCAL POLICE AS THEY PROTECT THE U.S. BORDER FROM THREAT OF MEXICAN DRUG CARTELS PREMIERES THURSDAY, OCTOBER 13 AT 10PM ET/PT

NEW YORK, NY, SEPTEMBER 2, 2011 - Laredo, Texas is under siege. The small city on the U.S.-Mexico border is overrun by the sophisticated and large-scale trafficking operations of Mexican drug cartels. Given unprecedented access, A&E documents a unique, dedicated team of local cops, members of the Laredo Texas Police Department Narcotics Unit, who are waging a daily battle to protect the U.S. in "Bordertown: Laredo." The ten episode half-hour series premieres with back-to-back episodes Thursday, October 13 at 10 and 10:30 PM ET/PT on A&E.

The largest inland port on the U.S.-Mexico border, Laredo is the premiere gateway used by Mexican drug cartels to transport illegal narcotics into the U.S. and export billions of dollars in cash to Mexico. "Bordertown: Laredo" gives viewers exclusive access to the explosive drama, violence and conflict that unfold daily along the U.S.-Mexico border through the unique perspective of five Mexican-American cops determined to take back their community.

In each half-hour episode, viewers ride along with the Laredo Police Department's Narcotics Unit as they work with confidential informants, carry out undercover missions, and execute raids in order to seize shipments of cocaine, marijuana, heroin and crystal meth before they can be distributed to cities and towns across America. Outnumbered and outgunned, they are a small agency fighting a big war. In season one, the unit seized nearly two tons of illegal narcotics, with a street value of more than 12 million dollars.

"Bordertown: Laredo" is produced by Al Roker Entertainment, Inc. in association with CRM Entertainment, Inc. for A&E. Al Roker and C. Russell Muth serve as executive producers.
