Steven Seagal: Lawman coming to A&E
A&E will soon air another law and order themed reality series, but this one has a well-known star: Steven Seagal. Despite appearing in brilliant cinema such as Under Siege 2: Dark Territory and Executive Decision, he has had another career entirely, working as a deputy for almost two decades.
“Seagal has been working as a fully-commissioned deputy with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office in Louisiana” and “is an expert marksman who has worked with their SWAT team and has instructed Jefferson Parish officers in firearms and hand-to-hand combat,” A&E says in its announcement of the new series.

In the press release, Seagal says, “I’ve been working as an officer in Jefferson Parish for two decades under most people’s radar. I’ve decided to work with A&E on this series now because I believe it’s important to show the nation all the positive work being accomplished here in Louisiana — to see the passion and commitment that comes from the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office in this post-Katrina environment.”
The show will follow his on- and off-duty work in Louisiana, and is starting production now; there’s no debut date yet.
