Move over, Texas Rangers. The Texas Game Wardens are the new stars in town.

Last night, Animal Planet launched the premiere episode of the new television series, “Lone Star Law” which follows the men and women game wardens of Texas Parks and Wildlife as they patrol and protect some of the state’s most valuable resources — its parklands.

Since 1895, game wardens have performed search and rescue operations, shut down illegal activity, and maintained safe environments for wildlife and park visitors, alike.  Texas Game Wardens make about 60,000 arrests a year throughout the state. Follow in their footsteps as they investigate large-scale poaching cases, save victims from flash floods, disrupt illegal smuggling operations along the Gulf of Mexico, and rescue injured wildlife.

The series will not only document the different responsibilities the game wardens undertake, but will also allow viewers to catch a glimpse into their personal lives and learn about the motivation that drives them.

The show will shed light on how often the wardens put their own lives at risk, too. The recent rain events and flooding throughout Central Texas called the wardens into action. On May 27, Texas Parks and Wildlife reported the wardens performed 68 flood evacuations and rescued 35 people and 12 pets. This is not a job for the faint of heart.

For a peek at the show’s stars, their recent walk down the red carpet, and what viewers can expect, check out the video below:

“Lone Star Law” airs on Thursday nights at 9 p.m. CST. To watch a full episode now, go to: Animal Planet’s Lone Star Law.
