A special one-hour episode of A&E’s Billy the Exterminator, airing next Wednesday, gives the cast a close-up view of the effects of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. In the episode, entitled ‘Billy Goes to the Gulf,’ Billy and brother Ricky visit the Gulf to help a family plagued by troublesome foxes, and wind up seeing, and capturing on camera, some of the damage done to the wildlife and environment in the area. Billy The Exterminator is produced for A&E Network by September Films, a division of DCD Media. September Films will also produce a second one-hour special for A&E, Raising Bains. The one-hour doc follows the Bains family, which is comprised of 13 children, 12 of them adopted. Raising Bains is set to premiere on A&E on August 23.
