Live PD Among A+E Networks’ Formats Highlights


At MIPCOM, A+E Networks plans to present a number of new formats, including the real-time crime series Live PD, which has been enjoying success in the U.S.

Live PD follows the work of police officers in multiple cities on a typical night patrol. Since its debut in October 2016, the show became the most-watched unscripted series on cable, with A&E Network greenlighting another 100 episodes.

A+E Networks is also offering up Undercover High, which comes from the producers of 60 Days In. The social experiment sees young-looking adults go undercover as teen students at a high school.

Then there is Making a Model with…, a brand-new competition for Lifetime that looks on as aspiring teen models compete with their mom managers.

Ellen Lovejoy, the VP, head of content sales for the Americas and formats, remarked: “A+E Networks is at the forefront of delivering formats that are easily localized across the globe. We are proud of our recent ratings success and look forward to building on that momentum with these new, innovative concepts.”
