Louis Theroux on the streets of Killadelphia

louisIntrepid BBC journalist Louis Theroux is back in a flash on Seven, for just one week, with a special on the city of Philadelphia.

Throwing himself into a story boots and all, as he so often does, Louis joins Philadelphia’s police department patrolling an area that has over 400 homicides a year, drug dealers on every corner and where carrying a gun is part of everyday life.

But during his time spent with the local cops, he sees a complex picture evolve.

Good guys, bad guys, guns and violence, Louis will experience it all and no doubt pose lots of uncomfortable questions of those he meets.

This 2008 episode airs at 10:30pm on Monday May 25. Next Monday in Sydney and Brisbane, Seven airs Extreme Celebrity Rehab while Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth catch up with the finale of Boston Legal.

From June 1st Seven will slate a regular series in the timeslot.


  1. What will they air on June 1st in that slot? There were a few rumours 30 Rock would move forward an hour and be paired up with Samantha Who. If not that then there’s always Knight Rider, Cupid, Las Vegas, Ugly Betty, The Unit, My Own Worst Enemy or those canned Beyond the Darklands eps.

  2. Kudos to this guy – great show, extremely interesting and every topic is always facinating. The last one I saw was when he was hanging out with the “most hated familyin the US” – if i remember correctly.
