I didn’t think this was real when I saw the commercial on TV, so I had to look it up online. Turns out it is…
“A&E is in production on Steven Seagal: Lawman, a new Real-Life series that will chronicle martial arts expert and international film star Steven Seagal’s extraordinary life in law enforcement.
Seagal’s movies have grossed more than $2 billion worldwide… But it turns out that Steven Seagal isn’t just an action hero in the movies.
