The show is being made by U.S. prodco Matador and is slated to premiere on November 19 at 10 p.m. EST.

Country Buck$ follows the Busbice family, who founded Wildgame Innovations. According to the network, “their 55,000-acre ranch – a sportsman fantasy camp in Louisiana – serves as the testing ground for their new products.

“Celebrity friends including singer Jason Aldean, Duck Dynasty boss Willie Robertson, and Swamp People  star Troy Landry stop by the family ranch to hunt, talk business and have a good time.”

The exec producers for Matador are Jay Peterson, Todd Lubin, Justin Tucker and Mike Riley, while the Eps for A&E are Brad Abramson, Fred Grinstein and Laurie Sharpe.
