Spike TV high on "DEA" documentary series
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Men's cable network Spike TV is going inside the Drug Enforcement Administration with a reality series from NBC weatherman Al Roker.
Spike has ordered six hour-long episodes of "DEA," which will follow agents at the agency's Detroit division as they pursue street-level dealers and international drug traffickers. It is set to premiere in the spring.
"This series is the real deal, exposing elements of illegal drug trade that you could not imagine," said Roker, better known as the merry meteorologist on NBC's "Today."
Roker will serve as an executive producer through his company, Al Roker Entertainment.
