Court TV Adds Series to Its Summer Lineup5/22/2005 8:00 PM Eastern
New York— Court TV’s summer lineup will include a pair of new series and a limited series spun from its Web site The Smoking Gun (www.smokinggun.com).
In Casino Takedown, starting next month, former con man Paul Wilson and his team of expert grifters, cheats and card sharps use high-tech gadgets and skill to “take down” and outwit casino security. The twist: the casino’s retained Wilson’s crew to test the games, dealers and security guards.
In August, Court premieres hybrid reality/docudrama Parco, PI, tracking the Parcos, a family of New York private eyes. It combines elements of verite documentaries and scripted drama, Court said.
In July, Court will go the limited series route with The Smoking Gun, a show that brings to life sensational documents from the Court-owned Web site, including segments on scandalous legal snafus and hard-to-believe cases.
