CONCORD, NH -- A new television series featuring New Hampshire Fish and Game Department Conservation Officers and biologists is in the works. Engel Entertainment, Inc., a film and television production company based in New York City, is interested in producing the series and has signed a contract with New Hampshire Fish and Game Department to develop the project.  Engel Entertainment produces the hit series “North Woods Law”, featuring the Maine Warden Service, now in its fifth year on Animal Planet, as well as a new series about Texas Game Wardens, “Lone Star Law”, which will premiere this year, also on Animal Planet.
The proposed New Hampshire series would feature New Hampshire Fish and Game Conservation Officers and other Department staff in the course of their daily duties enforcing wildlife and fisheries laws, stocking fish, managing and conserving resources, search and rescue, snowmobile and off-road vehicle enforcement and safety, conducting coastal marine enforcement, responding to calls from the public, taking part in outdoor education program work, and more.

“This program is an exciting opportunity to increase awareness and recognition of the complex duties of Department staff and the positive impact they have on natural resources, tourism and the state’s economy,” said Col. Kevin Jordan, Chief of New Hampshire Fish and Game Law Enforcement. “The show has a lot of promise for improving community outreach, keeping youth and others involved in outdoor recreational traditions, and boosting interest in careers with Fish and Game.”

Viewers could be seeing episodes filmed in New Hampshire within the next year, but there are lots of variables in the television production business, so, as they say, “stay tuned.”
