U.S. net Discovery Channel is set to hog the spotlight April 11 with the premiere of Gurney Productions-helmed series Boss Hog, which follows Brian “Pigman” Quaca (pictured) as he tackles Texas’s wild hog problem.

The series follows Quaca and his growing pig empire. Texas suffers from an estimated US$1.5 billion in agricultural damage every year, and Quaca provides everything from high-end hog hunts to customized hog hunting bows, to stuffing and mounting trophy boars. Boss Hog will focus on the pigman’s business as well as his relationship with staff, which includes his quirky father.

Scott Gurney and Deirdre Gurney are exec producing the series for Discovery, with Dave Luce, Mike Odair and Rick Sasson as co-exec producers. For Discovery, the exec producers are Julie Meisner Eagle and Joe Weinstock, with Zander Kanefield as associate producer.
