Coming Soon: Steven Seagal: Lawman

at . Comments

Reality TV fans will soon be under siege from a washed up action star.

A&E has announced production on Steven Seagal: Lawman, a series that will focus on Seagal's work as a fully-commissioned deputy with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office in Louisiana.

On the show, viewers will follow around the actor as he and his hand-selected deputies respond to crimes as they happen. Naturally, we'll also watch Seagal pursue personal interests, including musical performances and philanthropic efforts.

"It's such an amazing revelation that this larger-than-life star has been doing real police work for nearly 20 years," said 

Senior Vice President of A&E Robert Sharenow.

Might this series lead to Under Siege 3? Apparently so.
