LOOKING FOR A NEW HOME? BOY, DO WE HAVE A SWAMP FOR YOU!

DESTINATION AMERICA UNVEILS NEW SERIES "BUYING THE BAYOU" PREMIERING SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7 AT 10PM

(Silver Spring, MD) - Destination America's new series BUYING THE BAYOU premiering Saturday, September 7 at 10pm and 10:30pm E/P proves the real estate market in the south is bursting with properties as extraordinary as its people and culture. Transporting viewers deep into the swamps, marshes, and waterways of America's Gulf Coast to see houses that simply can't be found anywhere else in the country, each episode combines Cajun real estate agents and quirky clients to create irresistible television gumbo. Watch people go head-over-heels for the swampfront shack of their dreams - whether it's an alligator farm or converted fishing boat. The clients explore three properties from top to bottom while risking run-ins with gators and nutria. After weighing the pros and cons of each home, they'll decide which property meets their needs, budgets, and Bayou dreams. BUYING THE BAYOU follows premieres of the original series BUYING ALASKA, airing Saturdays at 9pm E/P, which looks at what it takes to buy a piece of the untamed north.

"We're excited about expanding our 'buying' franchise with even more stunning and challenging locations including the Bayou where its unconventional residents often fish off their back porch, commute by boat and hunt gators for a living," said Marc Etkind, general manager of Destination America. "While Alaska showcases off-the-grid isolation in dangerously beautiful land, the deep south offers its own version of a rugged lifestyle with an unusual landscape, and colorful characters."

The line-up for the first four episodes of the new season is as follows:

Saturday, September 7 at 10 PM and 10:30PM (E/P)

· Gator Boys

Best friends Duck, Lathan, and Flip are avid gator hunters but are growing tired of traveling each weekend to their favorite place to enjoy bayou living. This year, they're willing to do whatever it takes to buy a home if they can hunt gators right out their back door.

· Floating Homes

Bryan Fassbender and Stephanie Robichaux are self-described work-a-holics who just want to have a weekend houseboat escape on the Pearl River. They are willing to live off the grid to have the water be their back yard. For them, there's nothing better than being able to move the house up and down the river to get a change of scenery.

Saturday, September 14 at 10 PM and 10:30PM (E/P)

· Cajun Fixer Uppers

David and Jackie love bayou life in Mississippi. With their two sons away at college, it makes sense to downsize on the water. They love to add their creative touch so they're looking for a fixer upper with beautiful views of the wetlands that they can make their own.

· Catfish Kings

Jack "Catfish" Clampit and his daughter, Amanda, love hand-grabbing catfish, but no longer want to haul their boat to Lake D'Arbonne, in northern Louisiana. Now that Amanda is encouraging her son to follow in her father's footsteps, it looks like noodling may become a family affair. And there's no better way to pass on the tradition than finding the perfect fishing camp to accommodate the growing Clampit clan... and their appetite for catfish.

BUYING THE BAYOU is produced by Paper Route Productions. For Paper Route, Alan LaGarde and is executive producer. For Destination America, Fay Yu and Sara Helman are executive producers, Sara Kozak is SVP of production, Marc Etkind is general manager, and Henry Schleiff is group president.
