Armed & Famous
'Armed & Famous' series to premiere Jan. 10 on CBS
"Armed & Famous," the reality series featuring five celebrities serving as Muncie Indiana police officers, will begin airing on the CBS-TV network beginning Wednesday, Jan. 10. Once the celebrities complete their police training, they will accompany officers on "ride-alongs." At that point, the celebrities will be carrying guns.
Erik Estrada, La Toya Jackson, Jack Osbourne and Jason "Wee-Man" Acuna and Trish Stratus will star in the reality series along with Muncie police officers and citizens.
The premiere episode will air 8-9 p.m. on Jan. 10, to be followed by a second original episode on Thursday, Jan. 11, also beginning at 8 p.m. The series will move to its regular time slot, Wednesdays at 8 p.m., on Jan. 17.
A CBS press release did not specify how many episodes are planned.
Filming for the series is under way and expected to continue through mid-January.
And how pathetic that a legitimate municipal police agency thought it was appropriate to participate in this. :nono

I am so excited about this show. How could you not want to see La Toya Jackson behind a taser? There's clips of that on the CBS site if you do a search for Armed and Famous. I don't see what the problem is, if they went through legitimate training why not let them be cops?

What a train wreck and a disgrace to real law enforcement. I won't be watching.

I think this looks hilarious. Of course I was the biggest fan of My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiancee.

I am a little afraid to come in here and say that my first impression is... FUN! LaToya! Ponch! Guns! YAY!! This is going to be like a Taco Bell Crunchwrap supreme, you know it's really bad for you and you're going to feel sick to your stomach afterward... but you can't stop eating (or watching) it!
I don't think it will last long but I hope there are some great laughs while it's on.
LG....I loved that show too! Even people I know who don't do "Reality TV" watched it and cracked up. And to think, now he is the gay bartender on Grey's Anatomy!

lol totally. It is going to be fun. I do hope it lasts long. I think that the respective celebs have large enough fan bases that there will be a lot more interest in this show than people think.

About the show
"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" Acuna 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" Acua ("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.
