A foot chase isn’t so bad these days if it lands you a chance to star on TV.
Officer Parker who has been dubbed "Chase Man" garnished national attention when he was captured chasing down a suspect on live TV, however that isnt the big story here.
In late 2018 after his footchase, Parker was contacted to star in a new TV series hosted by NFL brothers JJ, TJ, and Derek Watt. There was a lot of contemplation as to whether he should go or not, because he didn’t feel like he deserved to be on the big screens. Parker said, ‘I’m just a guy from a small town. I don’t deserve this". Parker decided to go with his gut, and off to Hollywood he went.
Parker has a touching story behind him that many people don’t know. In a recent post from his facebook he stated, “I’m the product of a broken home. A single mother with 6 kids. I'm a fatherless product of the ghettos and slums. As well as the not so ghettos. I took experience from both and applied the knowledge as needed. Yes I'm African American. Yes I rose above my situation. Stop making excuses for why something is the way it is and start making changes. I have never doubted that some bad things have happened, but in the now and in this moment, I'm focused on our push into the future. “
One thing that has never changed with Officer Parker is that he is persistent and has always worked towards his dream. He’s now known for inspiring people through social media. He has always said, ‘I want the world to hear me and now that they are listening, and I have to tell them the story.’
The show named "Ultimate Tag" is a high-octane physical competition based on the classic playground game of tag, co-hosted by NFL superstar sibling trio J.J., T.J. and Derek Watt . Each week, competitors - who are everyday citizens and not professional athletes - vault, dodge, tumble and dive over various epic, three-dimensional moving courses, with one simple goal: Don't get caught. As competitors progress, they are challenged to take on even more extreme courses and earn points for their performance in each heart-pounding game.
The game show is set to air May, 20 2020 at 10pm EST.
