When it comes to factual television, Alaska sure is hot.

Thinkfactory Media (Gene Simmons Family Jewels) is producing Mounted in Alaska, a new half-hour series focusing on Russell Knight, the owner of Knight’s Taxidermy. Knight has been in the taxidermy business for 30 years, a skill and trade that has also fascinated several of history’s notable figures, such as Charles Darwin, Thomas Jefferson and Theodore Roosevelt.

The show will also feature “the colorful craftsmen and outdoorsmen” Knight works with.

Exec producers for History are David McKillop and Charles Nordlander; exec producers for Thinkfactory Media are Adam Reed, Adam Freeman, Joanne Rubino and Leslie Greif.
