ETURNING SERIES/SPECIAL PROGRAMMING
MONSTERS INSIDE ME reveals the unknown ticking time bomb of infections that can go off in your body at any minute – from parasites and viruses to bacteria and fungi, along with foreign objects the can plague unsuspecting victims. The cases are unexpected – and sometimes unexplainable – and doctors must race against the clock to diagnose the culprits. Viewers see the mystery unfold through first-person accounts; interviews with friends, families and doctors; and reenactments of the victim’s grueling journey. Host/biologist Dan Riskin provides scientific perspective on the cringe-worthy creatures making their homes within the hidden crevices of our bodies. It seems as if no one is safe from these microscopic monsters.
The journey is the destination for cat behaviorist Jackson Galaxy in MY CAT FROM HELL. With a career spanning more than 20 years, the Cat Daddy has been on an unbelievable ride, taking him from the gates of heaven to the depths of hell and everywhere in between. Along with his usual cat wizardry helping hellish felines, Jackson aims to correct cat behavior and improve relationships between cats and their guardians with one goal in mind – to prevent pet guardians from giving up their pets and contributing to already overcrowded shelters.
Every year, shelters and rescues across the country spend countless hours finding homes for millions of abandoned animals. In PET NATION RENOVATION, a deserving shelter receives a much needed top-to-bottom makeover, providing animals with a more comfortable stay while awaiting their forever home. Hosted by animal expert and home renovation enthusiast Dave Salmoni, he and a makeover team completely transform the shelter which cumulates in an adoption event to help the animals find their happy “tails.”
PIT BULLS & PAROLEES features Tia Torres, a true believer in second chances. For more than 20 years, Tia has dedicated her life to Villalobos Rescue Center, the largest pit bull rescue center in the U.S. She has also offered a fresh start to more than 50 parolees and a new lease on life to dogs that were discarded, demonized and abused, often due solely to the reputation of their breed. Now more than ever, she must rely on her children, their significant others and the parolees to follow in her footsteps and keep the ever-expanding rescue running effectively in multiple locations. Tia fights the never-ending battle and emotional rollercoaster of running the nation’s largest pit bull sanctuary where each new day brings happiness or heartbreak – and sometimes both.
Going into its 14th year, PUPPY BOWL has owned the world’s cutest sporting event on television. Every Super Bowl Sunday, two teams of the fluffiest and cuddliest line barkers and wide retrievers take to the gridiron for a playful game of ear tugs, tackles and tumbles. Representing rescues from across the country, these adoptable four-legged players that make up #TeamRuff and #TeamFluff are serious when it comes to taking home the Lombarky trophy or the title of Most Valuable Puppy (MVP) title and more importantly…their furever homes.
In TANKED, Las Vegas-based Acrylic Tank Manufacturing (ATM), one of the country’s most successful builders of aquariums, and two of Sin City’s most imaginative businessmen, co-owners Wayde King and Brett Raymer, are tasked with building enormous and awe-inspiring tanks and aquariums for top celebrities and athletes, luxury hotels and casinos, Fortune 500 businesses and private homeowners across the country. ATM takes on more than 200 projects every year with tanks ranging from 50 to five million gallons in size that feature the most exotic, unusual, colorful and dangerous fish in the world.
Pete Nelson dedicates his life granting people’s dreams of turning peaceful nooks in nature into the ultimate escapes. In TREEHOUSE MASTERS, Pete and his team execute the most outrageous treehouses designed to delight every whimsy, form and function. Whether he’s building magnificent multi-bedroom treehouses with state-of-the-art kitchens and bathrooms or rendering simpler, peaceful one-room escapes, Pete always goes out on a limb to create the most breathtaking treehouses with spectacular views.
THE VET LIFE returns for a second season and follows veterinarians, Dr. Diarra Blue, Dr. Aubrey Ross and Dr. Michael Lavigne, who operate a full-service veterinarian hospital together in Houston.
