Previously Announced 'Top Hooker' Has Completed Production 1/30/2013 9:56 AM Eastern


Animal Planet on Wednesday announced two new pickups, Money Barn and Swamp'd.

Money Barn is a five-part, half-hour series from Original Productions. Premiering in February, the show follows a group of treasure-hunting auctioneers who search through thousands of barns to find forgotten heirlooms to sell at auction. Thom Beers, Philip David Segal and Jeff Conroy are the executive producers with Steve Robillard as coexecutive producer.

Leftfield's Swamp'd focuses on the Louisiana-based shop, P'Maws Bait Shack, which is located in the small town of Pierre Part. The show premieres this spring with Brent Montgomery, Dominick Pupa and Will Nothacker serving as executive producers and Meredith Voges as the supervising producer.

These two join the previously-announced Top Hooker, which has complete production. It will premiere in the summer.

"We're excited to collaborate with some of the best production partners in the business," said Marjorie Kaplan, president and GM of Animal Planet.  "These projects continue to push the range of stories we have to tell our audience."
