DHS Drafts Hollywood
"Border Security USA" To Report on "Success"

Hollywood Reporter -- May 28  
Clown points at Arnold Shapiro

Reality show will document homeland security
    A new ABC unscripted series will take an unprecedented look behind the scenes at the government's fight against terrorism.
    The network has ordered 11 hours of "Border Security USA" from executive producer Arnold Shapiro ("Big Brother"). Shot on location throughout the United States, the series will focus on the efforts of border protection agencies to halt illegal smuggling and immigration.
    A typical episode might jump from a border patrol in Texas to security screeners at a New York airport to a Coast Guard boat off Puerto Rico.
    "Border" is billed as the first multiepisode television series to be shot in cooperation with the Department of Homeland Security, as well as several other government agencies. [...]
    "They want people to know how diligent they are," Shapiro said. "You hear about every problem that the Department of Homeland Security is having; you never hear about what they're doing that's good."
