Elite Tactical Unit: S.W.A.T is a competition series featuring two (2) eight-person Special Weapons and Tactics teams. Over the 13-week series, we will find out who is the "Best of the Best."

Hosted by Mykel Hawke, a well-respected former special forces operator and the host of Discovery Channel's One Man Army and Man, Woman, Wild, each episode includes a team competition and an individual elimination challenge.

Fourteen real-life S.W.A.T. officers compete. But there can only be one victor. Outdoor Channel, America’s leader in outdoor TV, today announced production is in full swing for the new original Outdoor Channel series, “Elite Tactical Unit: S.W.A.T.” Scheduled to premiere in January 2013, this one-hour adrenaline-fueled reality show will take viewers on realistic missions through explosive danger led by officers that serve in this line of duty day in and day out.

Presented by Sig Sauer, “Elite Tactical Unit: S.W.A.T.” is produced by Winnercomm, an independent sports production company and division of Outdoor Channel Holdings. The 13-week original series, which is filming in St. Louis, Missouri, features the fierce competition between special weapons and tactics operators made up of active-duty U.S. S.W.A.T. officers who are vying for $10,000 for themselves along with cash and prizes valued at more than $100,000 for the S.W.A.T. departments they serve back home.

“Elite Tactical Unit: S.W.A.T.” provides viewers with a glimpse into the mentally rigorous and physically dangerous conditions that professional S.W.A.T. teams are faced with, covering a variety of tactical disciplines from high-risk helicopter rescue missions to close quarters combat.The S.W.A.T. operators are divided up into two seven-person teams – the Blue Team and the Black Team – as they compete in weekly team elimination challenges until two individuals remain. The final two S.W.A.T. operators then go head-to-head in the finale for one last extreme mission.

“‘Elite Tactical Unit: S.W.A.T.’ is among the character- and competition-driven programming we’re developing to bolster our 2013 lineup and reinforce our commitment to original productions moving forward,” said Tom Hornish, President and CEO, Outdoor Channel. “With its unique potential to attract an expansive audience interested in the heroism of America’s finest operators, in addition to the mechanics of tactical excellence, the series is an ideal addition to our original programming portfolio.”
