NEW DISCOVERY SERIES "BAR HUNTERS" GIVES WANNABE BAR OWNERS THE CHANCE TO TURN THEIR DREAMS INTO REALITY

-First Two Episodes Premiere Back-to-Back on Monday, October 21 at 10PM E/P on Discovery-

(Los Angeles, California) Opening a bar is no party. While many people dream of running a bar of their own, at least half of them fail within the first year. Enter renowned bar expert and sommelier Tom Powers, who has helped open more than two dozen successful restaurants and bars. Now he's using his expertise to help first-time bar owners find their dream bars in the new series BAR HUNTERS, premiering Monday, October 21, at 10 PM E/P on Discovery.

Each week, Tom will hunt down three high potential spots and reveal how each location can be transformed into the ultimate money making investment. But not all spaces are created equally, with each having its own share of positives and negatives. Tom gives his expert opinion, ranking each space on a scale of one to 10 for success. But ultimately, the decision is in the hands of the bar newbies who must decide which space fits their budget and concept.

The first two 30-minute episodes will air back-to-back beginning at 10PM on Monday, Oct. 21. In the first episode, Tom heads out to the college party town of Tempe, Arizona, where he meets longtime pals Ben and Lars who are looking to open a down and dirty, All-American country western bar complete with a mechanical bull. But can Tom successfully find the right spot without breaking the bank?

Then, in the second episode airing at 10:30PM, Tom meets a father and his two sons looking to open a California beach-themed bar - right in the heart of Dallas, Texas. Can Tom show this trio the spots that give off the California vibes they're looking for without having to leave their hometown?

From dive bars and brew houses in Pennsylvania to an Irish pub in the American heartland of Kansas to party and sports bars in America's top cities, BAR HUNTERS travels the country helping everyday people follow their dream of opening a bar of their very own.

BAR HUNTERS is produced for Discovery Channel by Shooters TV. For Shooters TV, Natalie Feldman serves as executive producer. For Discovery, Christo Doyle is executive producer, Jim Beard serves as supervising producer with Meagan Davis as producer.
