If anyone knows their way around an insane police video, it’s Paul Stojanovich. Stojanovich has grown up with crazy clips due to his late father, Paul Stojanovich, Sr., one of the people behind the hit FOX show “COPS.”
Stojanovich, Sr., who also continued to blaze the reality show trail with shows like “American Detectives” and the first iteration of “World’s Wildest Police Videos,” had a profound effect on his son.
“I think he had a tremendous influence,” said Stojanovich, Jr. “He raised my brother and I alone and we were very close to him. I learned a point of view about reality TV that nobody ever saw. He had a tremendous sense of what people want to see.”
This version of “World’s Wildest Police Videos,” airing Monday nights on Spike TV, is continuing in the Stojanovich way by showing the world videos that will shock even the most stone-faced viewer.
“Viewers will see an increase in the amount of videos and there will also be videos nobody’s ever seen before,” said Stojanovich, Jr. “If you see them [the videos] in a movie you wouldn’t believe them.”
Not even websites like YouTube are stopping Stojanovich, Jr. for securing the most outrageous videos. “We view YouTube and sites like it as our friends,” he said. “If someone uploads a video, the chances of it going viral are much higher, which leads us to find it. However, on the flip side, we’re working with law enforcement to find videos people have never seen before.”
Stojanovich, Jr.’s commitment is exactly the show is back for its third season on Spike. “We want the viewers to stay loyal,” he said. “There are videos they won’t seen on any other reality show on television.”
“World’s Wildest Police Videos” airs every Monday night at 11 pm ET on Spike TV.
