NEW DELHI: For the first time, a private television channel will run a weekly series on crime where it follows actual policemen as they solve various crimes and face different situations. The show will be telecast from 22 June every weekend at 7.00 pm.

Although crime shows on TV are common with almost every channel, the show Police Dial 100 based in Delhi and telecast on Life OK will have the team from Endemol following policemen as they attempt to solve crimes.

Commenting on the series, Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar who was accompanied by several senior personnel at a press meet here stressed that there were no re-enactments and the working of the police had been shown exactly as it was happening. He quipped at one stage that he had been astonished to discover that some of his men were good actors, since they faced the camera without any hesitation.

At the same time, he appreciated the media team, though he admitted he had been apprehensive at first about allowing them as he felt ‘things may go wrong’.

Life OK GM Ajit Thakur said he had never imagined that a media team could do this, but he said the series will make the people feel safer as it showed the police as it actually worked to combat crime.
“Police forces have a tough job of maintaining law and order, especially in densely populated Indian cities such as Delhi and Mumbai. Police Dial 100 is Life OK’s effort to delve deeper into the functioning law enforcing agencies and capturing on camera the highly stressful lives our police forces lead. The one-of-its-kind show in India will showcase things that are often not discussed on camera. The series is not based on any script and will not feature dramatisation or enactments, but will only capture reality as it happens in the police’s world. We are confident that the audience will be thrilled to see our real life heroes on camera.”

Endemol India Deepak Dhar MD and CEO said, "Endemol has always broken the mould when it comes to new and innovative programming. For the first time in the history of Indian television we present a show that explores the real world of cops and crime. Our cameras have captured the activities of the police force, working to solve a case in real time." He said this was real TV, not reality TV. He said if the show proves successful, the Endemol team was prepared to follow the police in other cities as they solve crime.
