CMT TURNS UP THE HEAT ON SUNDAY NIGHTS WITH THE PREMIERE OF BACK-TO-BACK EPISODES OF THE NEW SERIES “GUNTUCKY” ON SUNDAY, APRIL 21 AT 9:30 P.M. ET/PT
Sneak Peek of GUNTUCKY to Debut on CMT.com Thursday, April 11
NASHVILLE – April 2, 2013 – From Leftfield Pictures, the producers of the hit series “Pawn Stars,” comes the loud and colorful Sumner family of West Point, Ky., in CMT’s new 10-episode series GUNTUCKY, premiering Sunday, April 21 at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT, with two back-to-back episodes. Fans can get a sneak peek of GUNTUCKY’s first episode on CMT.com, beginning Thursday, April 11.
At their family-owned and operated Knob Creek Gun Range, customers can try out, pawn and purchase a broad spectrum of legal firearms, from cannons to rare collectables. The world famous Range has been in the Sumner family for three generations, led by Patriarch Gran-pa Biff Sumner, Jr. Biff handed over day-to-day business of the range to his reliable son, Kenny, who now has his hands full thanks to the rest of the family. The Sumner family also includes Kenny’s irrepressible brother, Steven; his usually free-spirited son Chad; and a new generation of Knob Creek Gun Range employees, Steven’s kids, Stephanie and Payton.
In the first half-hour episode, Steven teaches his son Payton that shooting up dad’s property comes with a big price, while the rest of the crew tracks down hard-to-find collectables. Meanwhile, Gran-Pa Biff has some bad news for the owner of a seemingly rare weapon; and two excitable brothers come to the range to blast their ratty old fishing craft into Boat Heaven. In the night’s second GUNTUCKY episode, the Sumners agree to stage an epic Civil War reenactment, while Gran-pa Biff has Steven examine and test-fire a very valuable rifle.
GUNTUCKY is produced by Leftfield Pictures (“Pawn Stars”). For more information on GUNTUCKY and exclusive content, visit CMT.com, like the official Facebook page or follow #Guntucky on Twitter.
