‘Swamp People’ is an American reality television series that airs on the History Channel. The series first premiered on August 22, 2010. Thomas Peyton, Kevin Hughes, Nicholas Bunker, Fred Greenlee, Bryan Miller, Graham Wiggins, Ari Cheren, Pete Destefano are the producers of the show. The show is developed and created by Dolores Gavin. Atchafalaya Basin in Louisiana served as the initial filming location and Original Media is the production company handling the show. Pat Duke acts as the narrator of the show.
The series has gained popularity among fans and has led to spin-offs including ‘Outback Hunters’, which also airs on History Channel and deals with the crocodile hunters who can be found in the Top End of the Northern Territory of Australia. Another spin-off titled ‘Swamp Mysteries With Troy Landry’ also airs on the same channel, where Troy Landry tries to capture creatures causing a problem locally, across the Southern United States, with a little help from the locals.
The decision on part of the History channel to expand the franchise and include the spin-offs proves just how popular the original show is on the network. The show’s popularity does not just extend to spin-offs; it has also expanded to games that are tied in with the series. ‘Choot’Em Angry Swamp’ or ‘Angry Swamp’ is an arcade-style game featuring Troy Landry from the original show. ‘Swamp People’ also known as ‘The Swamp People Game’ is another addition. It is a hunting simulation game. The vastness of the franchise is a testament to its loyal fan base.
