Amazon and Wanda Sykes Think Spying on You Is Hilarious

Instead of “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” “Ring Nation” might be much better compared to the 1990s poverty and brutality exploitation touchstone “Cops.” The show is co-produced by MGM subsidiary Big Fish Entertainment, formerly behind an even more exploitative riff on the “Cops” model called “LivePD,” which was, not coincidentally, cancelled in the summer of 2020 when George Floyd’s murder by police showed Americans (for really the first time ever, we swear) that police brutality existed. “Cops,” incredibly, is still in production, but only airs internationally, not in the U.S. The brutality of American policing, it seems, is still good entertainment in other countries, but all too real at home.
