• CNN Wire Staff
Authorities in Uganda were investigating the death of a U.S. reality television producer whose work includes "The Amazing Race" and "Whale Wars,'" officials said Wednesday.

Andrew Kaweesi, commander of the Kampala Metropolitan Police Force, said that, based on preliminary toxicology results, officials believe Jeff Rice died of a drug overdose.

Kaweesi said he did not know what drug may have been involved.

An official police statement will be issued Thursday, according to Kaweesi. Rice's body was found late last week in a hotel room, according to reports.
