Fledgling cable channel ReelzChannel, which became an original programming player overnight when it picked up miniseries The Kennedys, is now expanding into reality with its first unscripted series, The Z Team. It stars actors Lorenzo Lamas and Tommy “Tiny” Lister,Marine-turned-actor Rudy Reyes and former professional wrestler Torrie Wilson as a group, led by Lamas, who will be contracted by law enforcement agencies and concerned citizens to confront real life and death situations on the streets of America. Per Reelz, “The Z Team, relying on years of experience fighting bad guys on the big screen, in the ring and in real life take on drug dealers, the mob and dirty politicians—no case is too much for them.” The series will be produced by Zoo Prods. whose co-founder John Stevens called a series a cross between “the action and drama of Die Hard and The Expendables and the reality of Cops.”
