No Kevin James, But Real Life 'Mall Cops' Coming to TV TVWeek

The biggest mall in the United States, Minnesota's Mall of America, will soon be the setting for a new TV series called "Mall Cops: Mall of America," it was announced .

The series is slated to air on TLC.  September Films will produce 12 30-minute episodes about the security staff at the Minneapolis shopping destination, which also includes an amusement park, a school and a wedding chapel.

Based on the one-hour special that TLC aired in September, the series will hope to equal that show's strong showing, a 1.0 household rating.
