TruTV has greenlit “Southern Fried Stings,” about a former state trooper who investigates those who engage in illegal activities.

Series, from Zoo Prods. and Studio Lambert, is set to launch in March. Eight episodes have been ordered.

Protagonist is ex-cop Jay Russell. He and his team of security experts hunt down criminals that operate both on a large and small scale.

TruTV had double-digit growth in the 18-49 demo in 2009 and is looking to further expand its original programming slate. New skeins “Full Throttle” and “Conspiracy Theory With Jesse Ventura” have preemed recently, with the latter launching to record numbers for the Turner-owned net.
