Roku Orders Season 2 for "Reptile Royalty," "UFO Cowboys," and "Lincoln Log Masters"
New seasons of the unscripted series to debut on The Roku Channel
SAN JOSE, Calif. - Oct. 18, 2023 - Today, Roku announced plans to order a second season for unscripted Roku Original series "Reptile Royalty," "UFO Cowboys," and "Lincoln Log Masters."
"Among the family adventures with the Brewer clan, the Cowboy Sky Watchers unbelievable encounters, and the masterful craftsmanship of the Knaughty Log Crew, each of these series invites viewers into unbelievable, everyday realities," said Brian Tannenbaum, Head of Originals, Roku Media. "We look forward to building on strong foundations from season one and bringing our audience more of 'Reptile Royalty,' 'UFO Cowboys,' and 'Lincoln Log Masters.'"
From ITV America's Leftfield Pictures, season one of "Reptile Royalty" showed viewers how running the world-renowned Reptile Zoo in Fountain Valley, California is a never-ending adventure for social media sensation Jay Brewer and his team. Jam packed with laugh-out-loud adventure and unavoidable chaos, the series follows Brewer as he cares for more than 600 of the rarest exotic reptiles on the planet alongside his daughters and fearless, fellow animal lovers, encountering one scale-covered tale after the next. The series is executive produced by Shawn Witt, Tim Cohen-Laurie, Mark Efman, Richard J. Green, and Kelvin Parker.
From American Chainsaws and the producers of the long-running hit "Mountain Monsters," season one of "UFO Cowboys" introduced viewers to the Cowboy Sky Watchers, a group of ranchers who investigate extraterrestrial encounters and paranormal activity throughout the American West - an area with more paranormal sightings than anywhere else in the United States. Using ancient tracking techniques and modern technology, these cowboys study the mysterious happenings in a region legendary for its high number of supernatural sightings and disturbances. The series is executive produced by Colt Straub, Duke Straub, and Royal Malloy.
Based on Hasbro's iconic childhood toy Lincoln Logs, season one of "Lincoln Log Masters" followed Cody, Wilson and the Knaughty Log Crew - the only log home building company with the Lincoln Log stamp of approval - as they design, build, break down, and rebuild epic log homes and structures across Oregon. Challenges abound for the KLH crew as they battle tight budgets, short timelines, and the worst Mother Nature can throw at them. But this team handles setbacks and success with a healthy dose of laughter and fun. The series is executive produced by Tara Long, Geno McDermott, Gennifer Gardiner, Hank Stapleton, and Cindy Bertram.
