TRINITY – The named of the new reality series featuring the on and off duty activities of Trinity police has been changed to Big Texas Heat and will begin airing on Saturday, Nov. 10 on Country Music Television (CMT). Initially called Trinity 9-1-1 by the show’s production company, Endemol, CMT announced the name change as well as the starting times for its new Saturday lineup that will include the show featuring Trinity police. The half-hour show will air starting at 9:30 p.m. local time and will run for an initial 10 episodes. Big Texas Heat will follow the second season of Redneck Island and the premier of Chainsaw Gang on Saturday nights. Redneck Island is a game show pitting 14 blue-collar Americans against one another on a tropical island for a $100,000 prize. Chainsaw Gang features artist Stacy Poitras and a “rag-tag bunch” of artists who use chainsaws to create sculptures. “Lastly, CMT presents the new series Big Texas Heat which brings the larger-than-life humor of one small-town Texas police force to TV,” the network said in its press release. “Each half-hour episode of the workplace reality series follows the on and off-duty antics of the police department in the tiny town of Trinity, population 2,697. They may not have the world’s highest crime rate to contend with, but keeping their small town safe from danger is a full-time job for this fun-loving crew,” it said.
