The Peacemaker - New A&E Series on Mediating Gang Violence

A&E has debuted a new documentary series entitled The Peacemaker that focuses on the mediation of gang-related conflicts in Los Angeles. Produced by wrapper Ice-T, the 5-episode series that airs on Thursday evenings features Malik Spellman.

From the show description:

For the last 20 years Spellman has dedicated his life to ending gang violence, putting it all on the line to mediate truces between rival gangs in Los Angeles - adversaries sometimes separated by less than one city block. Whether he’s in his classroom teaching life skills to middle school students, or riding through South Central on his bicycle, Spellman stays true to his purpose: keeping kids safe, out of trouble, and free from violence. Each episode of THE PEACEMAKER executive produced by rapper and actor Ice-T, provides an unprecedented look at gang life, following Spellman as he coordinates and oversees tense moments of mediation between enemies with long histories of hate and violence.

Full episodes can be viewed online.
