    Oxygen will pick up a television series based on Florida Man crime.

    Florida’s most notorious will make it to Oxygen, the crime-focused cable television network, The Hollywood Reporter stated.

    The Hollywood Reporter adds: “When a crime sounds like it came straight from a Hollywood screenplay, there’s a good chance it was committed by a Florida Man.”

    "The Florida Man Archetype is inescapable," said Samantha Ouimette, media relations associate.
    "For residents of the Sunshine State, home is where Florida Man is…and what shocks the rest of
    the country is just another headline for us."

    "Florida Man," first appeared on Twitter six years ago.
    It is a seemingly endless series of headlines culled from various news sources
    around the state that begin with the words "Florida Man," followed by some
    offbeat criminal act or kooky behavior.

    “Florida has always been a magnet for outlaws and scoundrels, and sort of a predatory element,” author Carl Hiaasen told NPR’s Peter Segal in 2011. Hiaasen should know – as the master chronicler of Florida’s “amiable depravity,” as he calls it, the author and Miami Herald columnist has spent his career on the front lines, reporting on the seemingly endless onslaught of bizarre, hilarious, and unfortunate criminal activity in the Sunshine State.

    The Tampa Bay area claims the most spots on the Top 10 Florida Man articles list.
    It is home to incidents such as public molestation of a stuffed animal in Hernando
    County and stolen police cars in Pasco County.

    Every state has these kind of problems but it seems that after the whole hanging chad issue, crapping on Florida became the thing to do
