A television show about the Clark County District Attorney’s Office has been picked up by a cable network, and is expected to start filming this fall at the Regional Justice Center.
Investigation Discovery ordered six episodes of Las Vegas D.A., which is scheduled to air sometime next year, according to a news release.
The show “follows District Attorney Steve Wolfson and his powerhouse team in real time, from assessing the scene of the crime to chasing the conviction in the courtroom,” the release said.
Wolfson, who started discussing the idea with a producer more than a year ago, has said that he hopes the show, which he referred to as a “docudrama,” may help solve cold cases such as the 20-year-old murder of rap legend Tupac Shakur.
On Monday, Wolfson said the unscripted show would capture moments both in the courtroom and behind closed doors.
It won’t be the first time Las Vegas law enforcement has made its way to a national TV audience. For years, the show COPS has filmed episodes here.
