County leaders in Williamson County, Texas, have banned the TV production company behind the hit series “Live PD” from filming law enforcement officers in the county for the reality show.
The AP reports that county leaders voted Tuesday to discontinue the county’s contract with producer Big Fish Entertainment. The show reportedly has 30 days to stop filming on county property.
The problem has to do with what happens to the footage shot for the TV show, which runs on A&E.
“District Attorney Shawn Dick is concerned that the company doesn’t save and share law enforcement footage with the county,” the AP reports. “Dick says footage should be preserved because it can be used as evidence in investigations.”
The AP reports that the county’s contract with the TV series says the footage is destroyed within 30 days.
“Williamson County Sheriff Robert Chody says he’s disappointed with the decision,” the AP reports, adding: “Big Fish Entertainment says it will film elsewhere.”
