Around the Web: ‘Live P.D.’ canceled by A&E amid ongoing protests

A&E has canceled its flagship series and one of the highest-rated shows on basic cable. A week after Live P.D. was pulled in the wake of George Floyd’s death, the reality series’ hiatus has been made permanent.

The decision was made jointly by A&E and MGM’s Big Fish Entertainment, which produces the series.

“This is a critical time in our nation’s history and we have made the decision to cease production on Live PD,” the network said in a statement to Deadline. “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.”

On Tuesday it was announced Paramount Network canceled the series ‘Cops’ just before the 33rd season was slated to premiere yesterday.

    A&E has done the american public wrongly by canceling Live PD. The show is about what happens in the daily lives of law enforcement and how situations that they encounter are handled to the best of their abilities and knowledge. They do not show favorites to any given race or persons male or female. My family has been watching Live PD since it aired. Are the producers afraid of something? No one in my family gets where they are coming from or what they are thinking by taking the show off the air premanently.
