Another Louisiana Reality Show, ‘Swamp Pawn,’ to Debut Saturday, January 26, 2013

Cajun Pawn on CMT

CMT will debut the new series Swamp Pawn, a new docu-series following Rick Phillips of Phillips Swamp Seafood in Bayou Pigeon, Louisiana on Saturday, January 26 at 9:00 PM.  Not your typical pawnshop, Phillips Swamp Seafood buys and sells anything the bayou serves up — including alligators, turtles, bullfrogs, crawfish, and everything in between. Phillips and a colorful cast of neighboring swampers make their living fishing, hunting and haggling in this tiny, self-sustaining community deep in the heart of the bayou.

‘Swamp Pawn’ features an array of quirky locals who rely on their ability to sell whatever will catch a price. This close-knit community lives off the land, learns to be resourceful when times are lean and depends on each other to get by. Those featured include:
  • Rick Phillips is the closest thing to a mayor that Bayou Pigeon has, and his business is the town’s lifeblood. He’s a tough customer, but with his casual country charm and sense of humor, he’ll also bend over backward to help a friend or stranger.
  • Coy and Shorty Gomez are a father and son fishing duo who spend much of their time arguing, looking for work or hocking anything they can to make a living. They’d make perfect business partners if they weren’t so different: Coy is a quiet, reserved and thoughtful backwoods gentleman, while his son, Shorty, is brash and scattershot.
  • Chachie Boy‘ is the best gator hunter in Bayou Pigeon and who the locals call to help when there’s trouble in the swamp.
  • The cast also includes dueling husband-and-wife fishing duos Clayton & Joney Daley and Quentin & Jamie Morales, who good-naturedly compete for bragging rights as the best fishers in the bayou.
What do you think? Good for Louisiana or not?
