Plot Synopsis

From Executive Producer Morgan Spurlock, AMERICAN TAKEDOWN is a one-hour documentary series that goes behind the scenes of America's biggest criminal cases. The series showcases highly specialized tactical law enforcement units across the U.S. that protect and serve against some of the most cunning and dangerous criminals in the country, providing an inside look at the unique and critical work that America's top investigators, specialists and agents carry out. Each week, a different police force and the crime worlds they investigate are profiled, including these cases: the US Coast Guard's Maritime Safety and Security Team track down a go-fast boat smuggling over $7 million worth of cocaine before it is brought into the US; Utah's S.E.C.U.R.E. Strike Force's probe into a resident procuring fake government papers for undocumented immigrant workers; the Florida Department of Financial Services' Auto Fraud Squad's inquiry into a local insurance fraud ring being run out of a chiropractor's office; and the Humane Society of the United States' investigation of a man suspected of breeding, training, and selling dogs for dog fights in Tennessee.
