If you get arrested in the West Precinct late at night over the next few weeks, you just might get your shot at stardom on MTV.
The Seattle Police Department has given a California-based production company unprecedented access to officers as the company films a new show for MTV.
Police sources tell us a crew for Down In Front Productions has wired up a patrol car in the West Precinct to record audio and video for the upcoming MTV show, Cuff’d.
The show is apparently already in its third day of shooting in Seattle. The crew for Cuff’d has already filmed in Key West, Florida.
In the show, officers working third watch—the night shift—at the West Precinct downtown will interview arrestees on camera, if they consent.
A spokesman for the department declined to comment on the show, as did the production company.
