Genre: Reality, Crime, Law
Premise: ``World's Wildest Police Videos,'' which caught the attention of viewers when it premiered on Fox in 1998 as reality TV was just taking off, aired for three seasons and many years more in syndication. Spike TV's revival in 2012 features new episodes and the return of original host John Bunnell, a retired police officer and former sheriff in Oregon. Bunnell narrates the police videos shot in the U.S. and around the world, often shocking and outrageous footage of high-speed car chases that turn deadly, bank robberies gone wrong, out-of-control riots, international hostage holdups and much more.
