G4 Offers Chance to Interact With ‘Cops’

May 24, 2007  •  Post A Comment

There’s a new answer to the question “Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gonna do?”
On G4, fans of “Cops” will be able to participate in an array of interactive features during the venerable reality show.
Viewers of what the network is calling “Cops 2.0” will be able to chat with other fans, answer trivia questions about the chase as it takes place and get additional information about law enforcement, legal procedures and cop lingo while watching the show.
The features will be available starting May 29 on G4, which airs “Cops 2.0” weeknights at 6 p.m.
“Adding interactive elements to a robust franchise such as ‘Cops’ is the perfect recipe for keeping G4’s young male audience interested and involved,” said Neal Tiles, president of G4. “We’re constantly looking for opportunities to extend a similar level of interactivity to other programming throughout the G4 lineup.”
The network has already aired interactive versions of “Star Trek” and “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”
“G4’s rendition of ‘Cops 2.0’ is an exciting new addition to our franchise,” said John Langley, executive producer and creator of the TV series. “The interactivity is particularly appropriate because it gives younger viewers a fresh opportunity to walk in the shoes of law enforcement personnel.”
Traditional episodes of the series continue to air on Fox and Court TV.
