Armed & Famous Premieres Tonight   

Oh, I should have posted this days ago but I wanted to wait until the night it premiered. Armed & Famous begins tonight. I don’t know if I’ll be able to stomach this show. I’m not really into the kooky reality shows and I’m getting the feeling it’s going to be like a really bad episode of Reno 911… only real, with stars we know.

Still, I must admit I am going to watch tonight because I have to check it out… if for no other reason than to see Erik Estrada in a real cop uniform. I don’t care much about the other people. It might be funny to see if Jack is as entertaining when he can’t cuss but that’s about it. That said, watch me get addicted to this new show! Anyway, check out the press release below for more info about the show starting tonight on CBS @ 8PM.


ARMED & FAMOUS, A New Reality Series,
Premieres Wednesday, Jan. 10 on the CBS Television Network

Erik Estrada, La Toya Jackson, Jack Osbourne,
Jason “Wee-Man” Acuña and Trish Stratus Star
In A New Series Which Follows Celebrities
As They Become Working Police Officers in Muncie, Indiana.

ARMED & FAMOUS, a new reality series that turns celebrities into crime fighters, will follow five brave stars through the Police Academy and onto patrol in Muncie, Indiana. ARMED & FAMOUS will premiere on Wednesday, Jan. 10 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) followed by a special original broadcast on Thursday, Jan. 11 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. ARMED & FAMOUS moves to its regular time period, Wednesdays (8:00 – 9:00 PM, ET/PT) on Jan. 17.

ARMED & FAMOUS features actor Erik Estrada (“CHiPs”), singer and author La Toya Jackson, television personality Jack Osbourne (“The Osbournes”), professional skateboarder Jason “Wee-Man” Acuña (“Jackass”) and former WWE champion wrestler, Trish Stratus.

The series follows the five stars as they become sworn police officers in the Midwestern town of Muncie, Indiana — a city of nearly 70,000 residents located 60 miles northeast of Indianapolis. It’s also home to Ball State University.

Done with the full cooperation of the Muncie Police Department, the celebrities will undergo police training to become reserve police officers in the Muncie Police Department. They’ll learn everything from firearms to hand-to-hand combat, and even learn what it’s like to be on the receiving end of a taser shock as a part of the process to be certified to carry stun guns. Upon completion of their training, they’ll be issued badges and guns, partnered with veteran officers and immediately hit the streets of Muncie. The five celebrities will protect and serve on the busiest shift of the night, 6 PM to 2 AM, responding to emergency calls, helping victims and making arrests.

ARMED & FAMOUS is produced by Emmy Award winner Tom Forman (“Extreme Makeover: Home Edition”), Jeffrey Kramer (“Ally McBeal”) and Michael Braverman (“Jesse Ventura’s America”) for Tom Forman Prods. and Good TV, Inc.
