NEW SERIES BOSS HOG PREMIERES ON DISCOVERY FRIDAY, APRIL 11 AT 10PM

 

BOSS HOG, premiering on Discovery Friday April 11 at 10PM ET/PT, follows Brian “Pigman” Quaca and his crew as they take on Texas’ wild hog problem, building his own “pig empire.”  In recent years, wild hogs have ravaged Texas, causing an estimated 1.5 billion dollars in agricultural damage annually. Where most see this as a nuisance, Pigman sees it as an opportunity, making money off every aspect of the pig – from booking clients on high-end hog hunts and customizing hog hunting bows, to stuffing and mounting trophy boars.

 

Expanding Pigtime Enterprises’ hunting empire, Pigman has also partnered with local barbeque joint, Wright’s BBQ. At the helm of the BBQ business is Quita, helping Wright’s serve up delicious BBQ to Texas for the past 50 years. Whether she’s trying to curb Pigman’s big business ideas for Wright’s or just keep tabs on Pigman’s wacky dad, Dap, Quita’s partnership with Pigtime has become a lot more than she bargained for.

 

Although Pigman’s hands are full building a successful business, it seems like most days are spent managing his hair-brained staff. No one tests Pigman’s patience more than his dad, Dap, who runs the Pigtime hunting ranch. With Dap, if it’s not one thing it’s another, but somehow he always gets The Job done – he just has a unique way of solving problems.

 

Above everything else, Pigman has one main goal in life: to provide for his thirteen year old son, J.D.  Pigman’s every ambition stems from the idea that he’ll one day pass on his pig business and pig legacy to his son. Right now, Pigman’s doing everything in his power to build on that legacy and take his pig empire to the masses.

 

BOSS HOG is produced for Discovery Channel by Gurney Productions where Scott Gurney and Deirdre Gurney are Executive Producers, with Dave Luce, Mike Odair and Rick Sasson as Co-Executive Producers. For Discovery Channel, Executive Producers are Julie Meisner Eagle and Joe Weinstock, with Zander Kanefield as Associate Producer.
