A&E has canceled reality show Live PD as nationwide protests against police brutality continue and days after a Texas newspaper reported that crew filmed the death of a Black man while in the custody of law enforcement officers and subsequently destroyed the footage, The Hollywood Reporter revealed.

In a statement, A&E said: “This is a critical time in our nation’s history and we have made the decision to cease production on Live PD. Going forward, we will determine if there is a clear pathway to tell the stories of both the community and the police officers whose role it is to serve them. And with that, we will be meeting with community and civil rights leaders as well as police departments.”
