THIS SUMMER A&E SERVES UP TEXAS-SIZED WEDNESDAY NIGHTS

A&E'S HIT REAL-LIFE SERIES 'STORAGE WARS: TEXAS' RETURNS FOR A SECOND SEASON BEGINNING WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15 AT 9PM AND 9:30PM ET/PT

SEASON TWO PREMIERE OF REAL-LIFE SERIES 'AMERICAN HOGGERS' TO IMMEDIATELY FOLLOW AT 10PM AND 10:30PM ET/PT

New York, NY - July 10, 2012 - A&E Network will premiere the second season of "Storage Wars: Texas" with back-to-back episodes on Wednesday, August 15 at 9PM and 9:30PM ET/PT immediately followed by the return of "American Hoggers" at 10PM and 10:30PM ET/PT.

In "Storage Wars: Texas," A&E's top-rated non-fiction franchise heads to the Lone Star state to follow teams of bidders on their quest for auction gold. The series returns for a second season with brand-new buys, all-new finds, and a few new faces. In season two, "The Rangers" Ricky and Bubba aim to expand their franchise across the great state of Texas. New buyer Jenny Grumbles enters the fray - using her southern wits to revive old furniture for massive payouts. Vic "The Outsider" tries to destroy his competition by turning Bubba against Ricky. And Dr. Moe Prigoff looks to his old friend Mary Padian to save him from his newfound hoarding problem. Mannequins to Motorcycles, Swords to Solar Panels - these buyers are takin' care of bid-ness.

"American Hoggers," follows the Campbell family and their struggle to rescue Texas residents and ranches from the devastating chaos caused by millions of invasive wild boars. Each episode follows legendary hog hunter Jerry Campbell, his level-headed son, Robert, firecracker daughter, Krystal, and family friend Lea as they respond to those threatened by feral hogs. Located in the heart of Texas, the family dedicates itself to the front lines - riding horseback, using highly trained dogs and employing good old-fashioned know-how to help those endangered by these destructive beasts.

In the first episode of season two, when a local rancher starts losing goats to a giant one-eared hog, he calls the Campbells for help. However, after 55-years of hogging, Jerry Campbell may have finally met his match. While Robert, Krystal and Lea hunt for the one-eared hog on horseback, Jerry's stubbornness mixed with some tough terrain causes him to roll his Jeep. The team re-groups that night and Jerry announces it's time for him to hang up his spurs -- and he wants his son, Robert, to take over - which does not sit well with Krystal.

"Storage Wars: Texas" is produced by Original Productions, a FremantleMedia Company for A&E Network. Executive producers are Thom Beers, Philip D. Segal and Jeff Conroy. Steve Robillard is co-executive producer. A&E executive producers are David McKillop, Elaine Frontain Bryant and Fred Grinstein.
