Gators, Swamps, Cops and Justice All In a Day’s Work at Kappa
June 11, 2012 | By Josh Converse |
We are just completing picture and sound work for A&E’s twenty-one half hour shows of CAJUN JUSTICE depicting law enforcement in the Cajun bayous and swamps of Louisiana.
Produced for the A&E Network by MAK Pictures “Cajun Justice,” a new original real-life series that follows the officers of the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office enforcing law in a world where the sheriff is like a king, and no police call is routine. Executive producers are Ken Arlidge, Mark Kadin and Ken Reichling. David McKillop and Laura Fleury are executive producers for A&E.
“‘Cajun Justice’ is a character-driven docudrama unlike any other nonfiction cop show,” David McKillop, Executive Vice President of Programming for A&E, said. “We are thrilled to introduce viewers to this fascinating, strange and dangerous world they have never seen before.”
Sheriff Vernon Bourgeois Jr. and the deputies of the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office are charged with serving and protecting over 2,000 square miles of treacherous swampland in Southern Louisiana. Located 45 miles south of New Orleans, the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff”s Office investigates thousands of incidents every year. With the fiery personalities of the local Cajuns and the Louisiana justice system unlike any other (it’s the only state that is ruled under Napoleonic law), there’s no such thing as an ordinary police call.
Kappa president Paul Long says, “We’ve been working on reality shows for quite a while, but Cajun Justice is like no other show we’ve seen. It’s probably the quirkiest, most unusual crime docudramas we’ve encountered and we are having a lot of fun working on it.”
