Alaskan Bush People
Has the State of Alaska become Discovery Channel’s second home? The ad-supported cable network -- long headquartered inside the Washington, D.C. (495) Beltway – must have hundreds of employees filming away in our 49th State. By my count, more than half a dozen reality shows take place in Alaska, including this week’s blog on “Alaskan Bush People,” which is tentatively scheduled to open a new season by the end of this year.
Returning for a seventh season in on October 14th is one of Discovery Channel’s most popular burly men reality television series: “Gold Rush.” The show follows a bunch of devil-may-care, tough guys who risk their all for the mining of placer gold deposits as far north as Alaska, and as far south as Guyana, South America.
