Set in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Appalachia, "Southern Justice" documents -- in a cinema verite fashion -- the work of law enforcement agencies in Sullivan County, Tenn., and Ashe County, N.C. With a combined population of fewer than 200,000, both small counties have their local charm, but they also have their share of hardships. Methamphetamine, prescription drugs, and alcohol play a role in a large portion of local crimes. Incorporating a shared philosophy best described as"Andy Griffith in the 21st century," the sheriffs and their deputies are tasked with protecting these unique, close-knit communities, and they often must use a mixture of action and compassion. And if a peaceful solution proves impossible, both agencies are ready with SWAT teams to handle the most violent situations.

Harlan County, Ky., has a history of violence and corruption associated with coal mining, but because that industry in Appalachia is a shell of its former self, law enforcement is dedicating its resources elsewhere. The county has been hit hard by a new kind of crime -- prescription drug dealing -- and it's up to Sheriff Marvin J. Lipfird to get it under control. In the reality-documentary series "Kentucky Justice," Lipfird and his team of deputies target everyone from street-corner dealers to city officials in a quest to clean up communities.
Think "Cold Case" meets "CSI" with a bit of "Rizzoli & Isles" mixed in, then make it real. That's the formula for this unscripted procedural drama that follows two veteran female investigators as they attempt to crack murder cases that have lingered for years without answers and closure. Kelly Siegler is an attorney and former Texas prosecutor who successfully tried 68 murder cases in her 21 years on the job, including 20 capital murder death penalty cases in which she secured the death penalty in 19 of those trials. She gets help from veteran detectives, who dig into small-town murder cases that have gone unsolved for years in the hope of getting justice for the victims and their loved ones.

No two days are alike, and each is adventure-filled as the officers, working alone or with a canine companion, often patrol sparsely populated areas where help can be hours away.

Fishing for bluefin tuna is a way of life for many residents of Gloucester, Mass. "Wicked Tuna" takes viewers into the unrelenting North Atlantic waters infamously spotlighted by the novel-turned-feature film "The Perfect Storm," to follow captains who are relied upon by their families, their shipmates, and by Gloucester itself, to haul in boatloads of the large but elusive bluefin. The pressure to deliver is unforgiving -- the fishing season is short and tuna populations are dwindling -- but one "monstah" catch can reel in just as large of a payday.
