Wonder Years Star Producing WGN America Series; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of February 16, 2015)

Outlaw Country

A star from The Wonder Years is producing a new upcoming WGN America series. And the star is... Jason Hervey. He of course played the role of Wayne Arnold on the Emmy Award-winning hit series. He parlayed the experience he gained and partnered with Eric Bischoff, his longtime friend, colleague and former President of Time Warner's World Championship Wrestling (WCW), to form Bischoff Hervey Entertainment (BHE TV, LLC). And now he is producing a WGN America series for BHE. Outlaw Country is a one-hour docudrama set in the town of Buckner, Missouri, offering one-of-a-kind access into a unique and dangerous subculture. With a reputation for drug dealing, gun running and robbing the Heartland blind, The Alliance threatens to overtake Kansas City. Outlaw Country follows as an elite team of law enforcement officers attempt to thwart their illegal operations at every pass, doing whatever it takes to break this assemblage of bandits—including running alongside the crew and bending a few laws of their own.

At the heart of this warfare lie two sets of brothers--Mike and Steve Cook, who act as Chief of Police and head of the Buckner Criminal Task Force, respectively, and John and Josh Monk, the pair they suspect are responsible for the town's surge in crime. The series premieres Tuesday, February 24 at 10:00 pm ET/9:00 pm CT on WGN America.
