No drugs in FCP….
When he walked into the training room for the Travel Channel Academy, he was hard to miss.
DEA uniform. Gleaming bald head and a South Carolina good old boy accent that made Sheriff Taylor sound like John F. Kennedy.
Although he had come to our four day course to learn to shoot and cut video, he also had another idea.
A former South Carolina State Trooper, he now runs a business called KTF. That stands for K-9 (as in dog) Task Force. Russell takes his trained dogs on site (places like offshore oil rigs) and searches for drugs. (And finds em). He does missing person searches. He joins the cops on drug busts and arrests. He’s like a real-life Tommy Lee Jones. A real character. A larger than life personality.
He though there might be a TV series in this.
We did too.
So we told him to go home with this new video making skills and make a short video of what he did.
Boy, did he ever.
Because he knows every law enforcement official in the south, he’s got helicopters and drug busts and fast cars and God only knows what else. The only thing he doesn’t have is Tom Cruise – but he doesn’t need ‘em. Cause he’s got Jay Russell as himself.
It was good stuff.
Good enough so that we could send it out to a bunch of networks.
And you know what? (I am starting to talk like him now)…
We got some responses. Some interest.
And who would not be interested in this?
So keep your eyes open. I think you’re gonna start seeing Jay and his dog on a network near you real soon.
