WGN Sets Two Unscripted Series

WGN will venture into the original unscripted series arena with the 2015 debut of two shows, Outlaw Country and Wrestling With Death.

Outlaw Country, which debuts Feb. 24 with seven original episodes, will follow the crime fighting exploits of Missouri law enforcement brothers Steve and Mike Cook, said network officials. The one-hour docudrama is executively produced by Erik Bischoff and Jason Hervey for Bischoff Hervey Entertainment, said network officials.

Wrestling With Death follows the Arkansas-based Latham family who serve as morticians by day and professional wrestlers by night. The 12-episode series will premiere Jan. 13 and is executively-produced by Leftfield Pictures’ Brent Montgomery and David George (Pawn Stars). 

The unscripted series join WGN America’s scripted series Salem, Manhattan and Ten Commandments.
