WILIMINGTON, NC (WECT) - An episodic police drama that began as a series on the web, is now unleashing on primetime television in Europe.

Port City P.D. found its home at the network, America Unleashed.  Beginning in January, 120 million homes in over 16 countries will be able to watch the half-hour police drama.

According to the show's MySpace page, the show focuses on two former hotshot investigators who are assigned to seemingling dead end cases.

Despising where they are (in their lives and their careers), the once "top notch" detectives' true colors are revealed as their cases turn into something much more than vandalism and stolen property.

Completely character driven, Port City P.D. is not just about the cases, but more about the everyday lives of these detectives. Because they are on the lower end of the detective unit, they must prove themselves time and time again, intelligence sometimes being their most powerful weapon.

CEM's Emmy® Award-Winning executive producers, Bidwell C. Tyler II (TLC's Overhaulin') and Susan B. Flanagan (Comedy Central's Win Ben Stein's Money) have joined forces with Eleven Bravo Productions and signed on as the executive producers of Port City P.D.

Eleven Bravo Productions is preparing for more episodes to go into production later in 2009.
