TV debut features Detroit
Metro area picked from among 9 cities to kick off 'DEA' series featuring drug enforcement agents.
DETROIT -- The nation will get a view of the gritty, day-to-day operations of the Drug Enforcement Administration as Spike TV focuses on the streets of Metro Detroit in a new narrative series, "DEA", debuting Wednesday night....
Viewers familiar with the area may be surprised by what they see, said Garrison Courtney, spokesman for the federal agency.
"I think they're going to be surprised at how involved the DEA has been," he said. "They don't realize that we do this much, because we're a small agency. They don't get a real sense of how much violence there is in drug trafficking."
