Travel Channel will premiere its upcoming mid-summer docuseries Truck Stop, Missouri from Leftfield Pictures, producers of History’s Pawn Stars, on August 3 at 10 pm ET/PT.

The 12-episode, half-hour series centers on the Midway Truck Stop, located halfway between St. Louis and Kansas City on Interstate 70. The Midway is made up of 12 separate businesses, including a hotel, a tattoo parlor, an antiques mall, a fireworks store, a “haunted house,” and an outdoor music venue.

Truck Stop, Missouri will be ushered in with a one-hour premiere, featuring back-to-back episodes where viewers will get to meet the cast of characters, including Joe Bechtold, Midway Truck Stop’s general manager.

 “Travel is all about opening your eyes to unfamiliar places, but also suddenly ‘seeing’ the things we take for granted,” said Fred Graver, SVP, programming & development, Travel Channel. “The people at Midway are a unique slice of America, in all of its fun and crazy glory.”

Truck Stop, Missouri is executive produced by Brent Montgomery and Colby Gaines for Leftfield Pictures and the Travel Channel EP is Stone Roberts.
