Drug Agents Don’t Need Al Roker’s Forecast

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Millions of Americans rely on Al Roker’s daily weather forecast – except for special agents who bust drug dealers.

Roker – The Today Show’s Emmy-winning weatherman and reporter – produces DEA, a gritty series on Spike that explores the inner-workings of the Drug Enforcement Administration.

The show follows task force agents as they attempt to crack drug rings, and Roker says that rain or shine, the agents show up to work every day.

They never hit up Roker for the forecast before a drug bust because, as Roker puts it, “The weather doesn’t matter. They do what they do when they do. These guys won’t stop for a rainy day.”

While the agents may not be gaining much from Roker’s meteorology skills, he’s learning a lot from them.

They’ve taken him on a few ride-alongs, which he says were “intense.”

Roker admits he doesn’t have what it takes to be a DEA agent, and will leave the drug busts to the professionals.

Season two of DEA premieres tomorrow (Feb. 10) on Spike TV.
