  • BSO on COPS

    Good stuff!!!

    Did the show start in Broward County? I heard a story once of a camera man from the show who was riding around in Broward back in the day then eventually became a Deputy with the department and is now a high ranking member.

    Yes, I thought like all of BSO knew that, if you look back on like the FIRST season, you'll see it's all BSO, and Broward area..

    on the first part, you'll see Back to Broward.

              There should be 4 more weeks of the Back to Broward series. I believe they are to air the next 4 consecutive weeks that the show is on.

                  If Geraldo had anything to do with it, it would have been canceled about 20 years ago...

                      Actually, he did. I can't remember exactly what it was but basically his crew followed cops around for a while, then it turned into cops.

                        COPS was created by John Langley and his producing partner Malcolm Barbour. In 1983 Langley was working on Cocaine Blues, a television series about drugs in which every one seemed to enjoy South Florida. As part of his research he went on a drug raid with drug enforcement officers, and was inspired to create a show focusing on real-life law enforcement. In the late 1980s, after producing a series of live syndicated specials called American Vice: The Doping of a Nation with Geraldo Rivera, Langley and Barbour pitched the COPS show concept to Stephen Chao, a FOX programming executive who would one day become president of the Fox Television Stations Group and later USA Network. Chao liked the concept and pitched it to Barry Diller, then CEO of the FOX Network. As fate would have it, a Writers Guild of America strike was occurring at the time, and the network needed new material. An unscripted show that did not require writers would be ideal for FOX, and to this day COPS remains one of the only real "reality" shows and is completely unscripted or planned.

                        The first episode aired in 1989, and featured the Broward County, Florida, Sheriff's Office. The original concept of the show was to follow officers home and tape their home lives along with their work. After a while this concept was deemed too artificial by Langley and was abandoned. Eventually, the format of three self-contained segments with no narrator, no music and no scripts would become the show's formula. The first segment is usually an action segment to hook the viewer, followed by two unrelated segments.
