HISTORY(R) GREENLIGHTS NEW DOCU-SERIES "AMERICAN FARMER" FROM PRODUCTION COMPANY BoBCat

EIGHT-PART SERIES PRESENTS AN AUTHENTIC LOOK AT THE AGRICULTURAL PROCESS FOLLOWING FIVE FAMILY FARMS

New York, NY - February 6, 2018 - HISTORY greenlights the docu-series "American Farmer," from BoBCat, the multi-platform production company founded by Thom Beers, Jeff Conroy and Sarah Bernard. The eight-part series will be an honest tale of risk, reward, hard work, innovation and grit centered on the lives of five farms across America.

Our country's farmers are heroes who gamble every last dollar on their own two hands, who wage war every day against an unrelenting assault from Mother Nature, who toil on dangerous machines for backbreaking 20-hour shifts. Shot on location across the country, "American Farmer" will be an authentic portrait of the fight to go from seed to stalk, and from farm to fork. The series will present an unflinching look at the agricultural process, told through breathtaking visuals and interviews.

"We're honored to continue our relationship with Thom and Jeff who have produced hit series 'Ice Road Truckers' and 'Ax Men' for the network," said Eli Lehrer, Executive Vice President of Programming, HISTORY. "'American Farmer' will put viewers on the front line of the battle farming families wage to bring dirt to life and put food on our plates. Their compelling, genuine stories represent the ultimate quest for the American Dream and speak to the heart of our nation."

"The life of the farmer is the last great untold story of America, and we have found an incredible partner in HISTORY," said Thom Beers, Chairman and Co-Founder, BoBCat. "'American Farmer' represents a return to the roots of what is so special about reality television - this is an honest look at real people. When we were casting the 'American Farmer' families, we found characters as rich, diverse and compelling as our hit series, 'Storage Wars.' And our filmmakers are deeply embedded with these farming families for an entire season, giving us a depth of perspective that has never been seen before."

"American Farmer" is currently in production.
