CMT PREMIERES NEW SERIES "SWAMP PAWN" ON SATURDAY, JANUARY 26

Six Episode Series Set In Bayou Pigeon, Louisiana Scheduled to Premiere Immediately Following a New Season of MY BIG REDNECK VACATION

NASHVILLE - January 7, 2013 - This month, CMT will debut six one-hour episodes of SWAMP PAWN, a new docu-series following Rick Phillips of Phillips Swamp Seafood in Bayou Pigeon, Louisiana. Not your typical pawnshop, Phillips Swamp Seafood buys and sells anything the bayou serves up -- including alligators, turtles, bullfrogs, crawfish, and everything in between. Phillips and a colorful cast of neighboring "swampers" make their living fishing, hunting and haggling in this tiny, self-sustaining community deep in the heart of the bayou. SWAMP PAWN will premiere on Saturday, January 26 at 10:00 p.m. - 11:00 p.m., ET/PT, immediately following the season premiere of MY BIG REDNECK VACATION.

SWAMP PAWN features an array of quirky locals who rely on their ability to sell whatever will catch a price. This close-knit community lives off the land, learns to be resourceful when times are lean and depends on each other to get by.

Rick Phillips is the closest thing to a mayor that Bayou Pigeon has, and his business is the town's lifeblood. He's a tough customer, but with his casual country charm and sense of humor, he'll also bend over backward to help a friend or stranger.

Along with Phillips, SWAMP PAWN features the mismatched father-and-son team of Coy and Shorty Gomez, two fishermen who spend much of their time arguing, looking for work or hocking anything they can to make a living. They'd make perfect business partners if they weren't so different: Coy is a quiet, reserved and thoughtful backwoods gentleman, while his son, Shorty, is brash and scattershot. When there's trouble in the swamp, the locals call in legendary 'Chachie Boy' -- the best gator hunter in Bayou Pigeon. The cast also includes dueling husband-and-wife fishing duos Clayton & Joney Daley and Quentin & Jamie Morales, who good-naturedly compete for bragging rights as the best fishers in the bayou.

SWAMP PAWN is produced for CMT by Pilgrim Studios, with Craig Piligian and Scott Popjes executive producing for Pilgrim. Claire McCabe, Joe Livecchi and Jayson Dinsmore serve as executive producers for CMT.
