A&E Cancels Live PD Following George Floyd Protests


Just a day after Paramount Network announced they were cancelling COPS after 31 years, A&E said they will do the same with their hit tv series Live PD.

The series follow police departments from around the country live on television.

The network released a statement about the cancellation:

This is a critical time in our nation’s history and we have made the decision to cease production on Live PD. Going forward, we will determine if there is a clear pathway to tell the stories of both the community and the police officers whose role it is to serve them. And with that, we will be meeting with community and civil rights leaders as well as police departments.

Live PD's host tweeted that he was "shocked and disappointed" with the cancellation.
