'Sheriffs El Dorado County' Reality Series - Available Fall 2016



52 episodes of half-hour original action/reality series covering real-life,

AS-IT-HAPPENS crimes are available for domestic and international distribution


(Sacramento, CA – January 6, 2016) - “Sheriffs El Dorado County,” a 30-minute original reality series produced by Foothill 7 Television in Sacramento, is being offered for syndication and cable distribution for Fall 2016. The show, which originates from El Dorado County in Sacramento, California, puts viewers “on the job” with the brave Deputies of the El Dorado County Sheriffs Office.


“Sheriffs El Dorado County” is an edgy, half-hour reality/action TV series that is set in and around the 1,800 square mile perimeter of El Dorado County, in northern California. Each episode focuses on powerful stories fueled by real-life situations that can easily turn into life-and-death sting operations, caught-on-camera crimes and everyday encounters that often quickly become hazardous to these courageous deputies who do this job every day!


Currently airing in its second season on Tribune station’s Fox 40 (KTXL) Sacramento, the once-a-week reality series has experienced tremendous success, beating out high profile dramas (“Law and Order,” “48 Hours”), comedies (“SNL Prime,” “Mike and Molly,” “Big Bang Theory”), sports (college and pro football) and local news in three different time periods (Sat/9P, Sat/6P, & Sun 11P). The series nearly tripled its year-to-year time periods in its first season, and Adults 18-49 and 25-54 are mesmerized by its commanding and dramatic storytelling.


“It is rare in today’s cluttered landscape for a first-run show like ‘Sheriffs El Dorado County’ to have already been tried and proven for two seasons in a top 20 market,” says “Sheriffs’ sales executive, Bill Trotter. “Thanks to recent local events,” Trotter adds, “an escalated focus on law enforcement and security by the news and political climate has been giving police officers a bad rap. The multiple time period success of ‘Sheriffs El Dorado County’ demonstrates that audiences are craving an action/crime reality format that allows them to witness firsthand the heroic truths behind the dangers our law officers face every day.”

The brave teams of Sheriff’s Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) and SWAT team Deputies still protect and patrol a hugely diverse range of territory and a multiplicity of crimes occurring throughout the luxurious tourist resort area, Lake Tahoe, the foothills of the badlands where dangerous drug busts are common, and some of the wealthiest estate areas of Sacramento in the luxurious El Dorado Hills area.


“You can’t write this stuff! The El Dorado Sheriffs Office was established in 1850, 15 months after the beginning of America’s infamous gold rush, the largest mass migration of human beings ever in the USA,” says Michael Dennis, Executive producer.  With the abundance of people, gold, horse-thievery, claim-jumping and murder run rampant, there hasn’t been a dull moment since."


Produced by Foothill 7 Television in Placerville, California. An experienced television veteran, Michael Dennis serves as Executive Producer. Los Angeles-based entertainment sales executive, Bill Trotter, is the domestic and international sales and distribution rep for the series. To learn more, visit Foothill 7 Television’s Facebook pageemail us here, or call 530-306-4217.
