“Law enforcement is a big part of my life and I'm proud for viewers to see my work in Lawman,” said Steven Seagal. “This series shows the hard work and dedication of the officers at Jefferson Parish and the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Offices who risk their lives every day fighting crime in America.”

Then, when Seagal goes off-duty, the cameras will continue following him as he pursues his many ventures including musical performances and philanthropic efforts in Jefferson Parish and New Orleans. In the third, and lost, season, viewers will see Seagal head to Arizona to work with “America’s Toughest Sheriff”, Joe Arpaio the six-term Sheriff from Maricopa County.
