CMT GREENLIGHTS “TRINITY 911," A COMEDIC REALITY SERIES STARRING THE POLICE FORCE OF TINY TRINITY, TEXAS

NEW YORK – April 4, 2012 – CMT will bring the larger-than-life humor of one small-town Texas police force to TV in a new 10-episode reality series TRINITY 911 to be produced by Endemol USA, it was announced today by Jayson Dinsmore, EVP, Programming and Development at the network’s upfront presentation in New York. Each half-hour episode of the workplace reality series will follow the on and off-duty antics of the most colorful police department in Texas.

The officers in tiny Trinity, Texas (population 2,656) may not have the world’s highest crime rate to contend with, but keeping their small town safe from danger is a full-time job for this fun-loving crew. Whether they are tasering each other to pass the time or struggling through a donut-free workout with their new trainer, the Trinity PD is on the job 24/7, 365 days a year. TRINITY 911 is set to debut later this year on CMT, and produced by Endemol USA with Greg Johnston serving as executive producer. Jayson Dinsmore and Eliot Goldberg serve as executive producers for CMT.

The series follows other Texas-based hits for CMT including DALLAS COWBOYS CHEERLEADERS: MAKING THE TEAM which is set to enter production for a seventh season soon and TEXAS WOMEN, returning with its second season on Saturday, April 7 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.
