Blue Team Presented by Streamlight to Compete against Black Team Presented by Nosler in the New Original Program
Streamlight Inc., a leading manufacturer of high-performance flashlights and weapon light/laser sighting devices, announced it will sponsor the Blue Team in Outdoor Channel’s new competition reality series, “Elite Tactical Unit: S.W.A.T.” (ETU), scheduled to premiere January 9, 2013 at 9 p.m. ET / 8 p.m. CT.
The one-hour show involves two teams – the Blue Team and the Black Team – made up of seven S.W.A.T. officers each who compete in weekly elimination challenges involving intense mental and physical skill. Streamlight will sponsor the Blue Team, which will compete against the Black Team, sponsored by Nosler, for a $10,000 individual prize, as well as cash and prizes valued at over $100,000 for the winner’s respective S.W.A.T. unit.
“We have the utmost respect for the difficult and challenging situations facing S.W.A.T. teams on a daily basis,” said Streamlight President and Chief Executive Officer Ray Sharrah. “As the lighting provider of choice to many tactical professionals, Streamlight is proud to be a part of the Outdoor Channel original series, ‘Elite Tactical Unit: S.W.A.T.,’ which will demonstrate what these brave men and women put on the line to protect our communities.”
Produced by Winnercomm, a division of Outdoor Channel Holdings, ETU is scheduled to air 12 episodes and a final “best of” special. The series will give viewers a peek inside the often dangerous and stressful conditions that S.W.A.T teams face on a daily basis.
