Red Cross Pharmacy Premiering Tuesday, February 24 at 9 p.m. CST on WGN, Outlaw Country is deemed as a "new original, unscripted series" filmed in Buckner, Mo. According to the show's press kit, Outlaw Country provides an "unprecedented look at a small town under siege in a real-life ride-along, with a street crew and the elite task force of law enforcement agents assembled to take them down. Buckner Mayor Dan Hickson said the show's producers felt Buckner was the perfect setting for the show and was very impressed with the nice people. "The production company did pay the city a fee for using the buildings and costs for fuel for using city vehicles," Hickson said. "During production, the cast and filming crew also spent their money in Buckner at our local businesses." Hickson added that members of the production company spent $1000 at the Mayor's Christmas Tree Auction last year and then donated the items back to the organization for a second bid. As for the new reality show, brothers Mike Cook, Buckner police chief, and Steve Cook, special investigator, are joined by Edward "Fingers" Jaunch and "JD" Dillman, the out-of-state law enforcement specialists and federal agents on loan to the Buckner Police Department to lead their criminal task force. Additional cohorts include Sergeant Marisa Barnes, "a no- nonsense, single mom with some interesting associations," (according to the show's press materials); Larry Parham, a decorated police officer and "known expert in rural gangs;" and Buckner Major of Police Heather Clancy, whose experience with the Special "We're thrilled to be partnering with WGN America on this 'groundbreaking,' unscripted series," said Jason Hervey, co- founder of Bischoff Hervey Entertainment Television.

As for what benefit this show brings to Buckner, Hickson said, "It's our hope that the show will help to promote Buckner and bring people to our town. We are excited and hope that this brings a level of tourism to Buckner." Hickson praised the show's production team. "Jason Hervey, (executive producer) Chucky Lynch (producer) and the entire production crew has been easy to work with and very accommodating. Jason Hervey is one of the most down-to-earth individuals I've ever met and I now consider him a friend." Check out the trailer above for a sneak peak.
