Border Patrol on ABC...
ABC just ordered a show called Border Security USA, which will take an 'unprecedented look behind the scenes at the government's fight against terrorism' and the efforts of border protection agencies to halt illegal smuggling and immigration.
A typical episode might jump from a border patrol in Texas to security screeners at a New York airport to a Coast Guard boat off Puerto Rico.
Border is reportedly the first multiepisode television series to be shot in cooperation with the Department of Homeland Security, as well as several other government agencies.
However, like most things in Hollywood these days, Border is a rip-off of something else. It's based on the Australian series Border Security: Australia's Front Line, which debuted in 2004.
ABC plans to launch Border sometime next season.
DISH wonders how much of the REAL story will be shown and then how long it will take for our government to realise that they don't have it right...
