COPS : Cops in Newport News, VA (CR: FOX)

Credit goes to John Langley, creator of the long running Fox series Cops, for shepherding the program through its 850th episode. “At the end of the day, an audience is looking for entertainment and/or information or a combination thereof,” says Langley.  “I think Cops offers a combination of entertainment and information.  And, at its best, I think you can learn something.  At it’s worst, you can be entertained by stupid people tricks.  It’s refreshing in that sense.”

Along with the dedicated police officers and the crooks featured on Cops, the show is also known for its indelible theme song.  Langley talked about why “Bad Boys” was the perfect song choice for Cops.  Click on the media bar below to hear Langley talk about the theme song:
