TLC’s latest reality venture: Drivers under the influence
LA TIMES– TLC’s latest reality subjects are drivers under the influence in “D.U.I.”
The network that has capitalized on multiple births, wedding dresses and coupon clipping is taking viewers behind the wheel in the series, which is set to premiere on Thursday, Dec. 1.
According to the news release, cameras capture some of Oklahoma’s “most dangerous drivers” as they undergo field sobriety tests. And a lot more than that will be shown: the process of interrogation, searches, lockup and the attempt to post bail.
The network has ordered 12 episodes of the series; six episodes (shot in Pontotoc, Cleveland, Sequoyam, Tulsa and Oklahoma counties) will premiere in December with an additional six scheduled to air in 2012.
