News brief: Discovery launching reality show from Duck Dynasty creators

Discovery is set to launch Porter Ridge, a reality series from Duck Dynasty producer Gurney about the colourful characters that live in a rural community in Indiana.

The show will launch on Discovery on August 13 in a 10.30pm slot. It follows the “eccentric band of misfits” that inhabit Porter Ridge focusing on characters including Jeff the Bear Man, Dirty Andy and Elvis lookalike Elvis Larry.

The show’s producer, Gurney, was bought by ITV Studios, the content arm of UK broadcaster ITV, late last year.
