From executive producer Morgan Spurlock, American Takedown is a documentary series showcasing highly specialized tactical law enforcement units across the U.S. that protect and serve against some of the most cunning and dangerous criminals in the country. The series gives an inside look at the unique and critical work that America’s top investigators, specialists and agents carry out to keep our nation safe.
Each week, a different police force and the crime worlds they investigate will be profiled. The cases featured will include Utah’s S.E.C.U.R.E. Strike Force’s probe into a resident procuring fake government papers for undocumented immigrant workers; the Florida Department of Financial Services’ Auto Fraud Squad’s inquiry into a local insurance fraud ring being run out of a chiropractor’s office; and the Humane Society of the United States’ investigation of a man suspected of breeding, training, and selling dogs for dog fights in Tennessee.
American Takedown is produced by Warrior Poets for A&E Network. Executive producers for Warrior Poets are Morgan Spurlock, Jeremy Chilnick, Matthew Galkin and Ethan Goldman. A&E executive producers are Brad Abramson and Evan Lerner.
