Travel Channel order Border Rico from Arrow Media

US cable net Travel Channel has ordered Border Rico, an original series from UK indie producer Arrow Media.

The 6x30mins follows the US agencies managing access to the island of Puerto Rico.

Tom Brisley, creative director, Arrow Media, said: “Securing access to, and developing a close working relationship with, agencies manning the US border and the US Coast Guard has brought us close to gun dealers, illegal immigrants and a wide range of scenarios which play out on Puerto Rico’s front line.”

The commission is the second for Arrow in recent weeks. It is also making Live from Space, the live broadcast from outer space for Nat Geo internationally and Channel 4 in the UK.
