CMT renewed Bayou Billionaires for a second season, Jayson Dinsmore, Executive Vice President of Programming and Development at CMT announced today that since Bayou Billionaires, ever since the debut had solid to record numbers, becoming one of the two highest rated original series in CMT history, Bayou Billionaires was renewed for second season.
“’Bayou Billionaires’ and ‘My Big Redneck Vacation’ with Tom Arnold have energized Saturday nights on CMT and become runaway hits for the network,” said Dinsmore. “We’ve only begun to scratch the surface with both of these fantastic families and look forward to even more laughs next season from the Bayou and beyond.”
BAYOU BILLIONAIRES tells the story of the hardworking and close-knit Dowden family of Shreveport, La. who recently struck it rich when the fourth largest deposit of natural gas in the United States was found on their property. MY BIG REDNECK VACATION, hosted by Tom Arnold, follows the extended Clampet family as they experience the vacation-of-a-lifetime in the Hamptons. The finales of both series will premiere on Saturday, March 31, beginning at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
BAYOU BILLIONAIRES is produced by Magilla Entertainment. Brian Flanagan, Matt Ostrom, Laura Palumbo Johnson and Brad Johnson serve as executive producers. Eliot Goldberg and Jayson Dinsmore serve as executive producers for CMT.
