Great American Country Renews Hit Original Series "Farm Kings" For Third Season

Season Three Premieres Thursday, December 19 at 9pm ET/8pm CT on Great American Country

NASHVILLE, TENN. [December 12, 2013] - Great American Country has renewed its original television series Farm Kings for a third season, the network announced today. A strong ratings performer that year-to-date has registered nearly 13 million primetime viewers according to Nielsen, Farm Kings celebrates family, food and home while chronicling the hard-working lives of a real, authentic, American farm family near Pittsburgh, PA: the Kings of Freedom Farms, a big, broad-shouldered group of nine brothers, one sister and a dynamic mother. Season three launches on Thursday, December 19 at 9pm ET/8c on Great American Country.

"Farm Kings has steadily grown its fan base and viewership over the first two seasons," said Sarah Trahern, senior vice president and general manager of Great American Country. "Viewers genuinely relate to this family's honest hard work and dedication to the farm and each other."

For the King family, the goal is simple - to make farming cool again. With that in mind, cameras follow the Kings into their fields, their homes and their various business units - including retail markets where they sell their wares and a bakery - to showcase the grueling, 24/7 work schedule of this American family out to support themselves and each other off the land and the sweat of their own brow. But hard work alone doesn't pay the bills, as Mother Nature always has the final say.

Following a second season of both trials and triumphs - including the creation of a 2014 calendar starring the shirtless King brothers revealing their hard-earned, chiseled physiques, and the failed effort to acquire their father's farmland when they couldn't meet the asking price - season three kicks off with some exciting developments both on and off the farm. With the summer growing season winding down, the brothers tackle the long hours of harvest season. Plus, wedding bells are chiming for one King family member, Lisa's baking skills are challenged in a blind taste test in a pie bake-off, Pete hosts a wood-carving contest, and some of the boys get rough and rowdy at the demolition derby. Add in increased attention on their community-supported agriculture (CSA) program and new efforts to improve the bakery and farmers' markets businesses, and there's no slowing down for the King family in season three!

Farm Kings is produced for Great American Country by Stage 3 Productions.
