MG/Perin has teamed with San Jose-based Tarn Communications to produce and distribute a new half-hour weekly series titled “Coast Guard.”

Targeted for fall 1995, the all-barter program will follow Coast Guard search-and-rescue, environmental protection, drug seizure and immigrant enforcement missions.

In an unusual twist, both Tarn and the Coast Guard will be involved in the production of the program. Producers of other reality series generally handle all shooting and editing themselves.

MG/Perin distributes two other reality series, “Scams”-a recently announced firstrun weekly show dealing with con games-and “The Extraordinary,” a series about the supernatural in distribution this season that is hosted by Corbin Bernsen.-Jim Benson
