MOTORWAY COPS BAGS UK RECOMMISSION AND US ADAPTATION
Motorway Cops, produced by Purple Productions, has been recommissioned for a new 20x60' UK series, plus a new 6-part series for Paramount+ USA.
The new series of Motorway Cops UK will continue to air on Channel 5 and My5 and will be following a new police force, this time following Northumbria Police as they patrol the roads of the North East.
Motorway Cops USA will follow New Jersey coppers as they police the most dangerous highways in America, turning a light on the state's worst drivers and the offenders who cause havoc on the roads. The USA series has exclusive access to two New Jersey police departments.
On the commission, Pam Cavannagh and Dympna Jackson from Purple Productions said: "Motorway Cops has been such a big hit with UK audiences, these commissions mark an exciting new chapter for the series...
"We are absolutely thrilled to be working with Channel 5 again and bringing Northumbria Police on board for another instalment of the UK series, as well as taking the Motorway Cops across the pond for a US edition with Paramount+. We can’t wait to showcase the incredible work of these police officers in their fight to keep roads safe."
Motorway Cops is available now on My5 in the UK.
