60 Days In producer Lucky 8 TV has secured exclusive access into the Tulsa County Sherriff’s Office for a forthcoming law enforcement docuseries.

The as-yet titled series, which is currently being pitched to broadcasters, will chronicle the daily routines of the investigators that form a newly minted Tulsa County task force seeking justice for some of the area’s most shocking crimes.

Formed in June, the task force’s first undertaking was a 1998 cold case involving a high school student who vanished from a west Tulsa parking lot and was later found murdered.

The New York-based production outfit has developed a raft of series and event specials including A&E’s 60 Days In and Behind Bars: Rookie Year; Food Network’s Kids BBQ Championship; Smithsonian Channel’s The Unknown Flag Raiser of Iwo Jima and Alaska Aircrash Investigations; and Weather Channel’s 3 Scientists Walk Into a Bar.

“With 60 Days and Behind Bars: Rookie Year, we’ve been able to spark a conversation about our corrections systems,” said Lucky 8 TV co-presidents Greg Henry and Kimberly Woodard (pictured) in a joint statement. “In this new series, we’re looking to do the same for these unsolved and mostly forgotten crimes – hopefully helping generate new leads in the process.”
