U.S. cable network A&E will air a reality series about an over-the-top family of New York City exterminators called Rambug.
Produced by Michael Levitt Productions, the show follows Rambug Pest Control owner Robbie and his staff of burly, camo-clad exterminators as they ride around New York in a truck with a giant cockroach mounted on top.
The cast includes Robbie’s older brother Ralph; their traditional Italian mother Mimi; general manager Big Rob; his son, the appropriately named Lil Rob; Lil Rob’s friend James; officer manager Rose and rat-trapper Steve. In the first episode, entitled “The Bug Stops Here,” Lil Rob slacks off on the job and threatens to fight Ralph, leading to a heated argument that is eventually mediated by Big Rob.
The series is produced by Michael Levitt Productions for A&E Network. Executive producers for Michael Levitt Productions are Michael Levitt, Jill Goularte, and co-executive producer Curnal Achilles Aulisio. Executive producers for A&E Network are David McKillop, Elaine Frontain Bryant and Lily Neumeyer.
Rambug will premiere on Sunday, April 28.
