CALL OF THE WILDMAN features the bare-handed, backwoods animal-trapping skills of "Turtleman" Ernie Brown, Jr. For the past three decades, Turtleman has been diving into Kentucky's murkiest ponds in search of feisty snapping turtles, capable of biting through bone. No job is too tough or dangerous for Turtleman, and his years of bonding with wild animals allow him to use his animal instincts to save them. CALL OF THE WILDMAN is produced by Sharp Entertainment for Animal Planet. Matt Sharp is the executive producer for Sharp Entertainment. Dawn Sinsel is executive producer for Animal Planet.

TANKED dunks viewers into the aquariums made by Acrylic Tank Manufacturing (ATM), the world's leading manufacturer of aquariums. ATM is a family-owned business led by brothers-in-law Wayde King and Brett Raymer, who are both long-time friends and fierce rivals, and TANKED shows the drama and near impossibility of their mission - to create enormously conceptual aquariums for high-profile clients. TANKED is produced for Animal Planet by Nancy Glass Productions. Nancy Glass, Eric Neuhaus and Dean Slotar are the executive producers for Nancy Glass Productions, and Melinda Toporoff is the executive producer for Animal Planet. TANKED was developed by Animal Planet's Senior Vice President of Development Charlie Foley.

Cat behaviorist Jackson Galaxy tackles the most catastrophic cat cases anyone has ever encountered in MY CAT FROM HELL. Armed with 15 years of experience, a proven training program and his signature guitar case filled with cat toys, Galaxy is on a mission to help cat owners find the source of conflict with their furry friends. MY CAT FROM HELL is produced for Animal Planet by 3 Ball Productions/Eyeworks USA. Melinda Toporoff is the executive producer for Animal Planet. JD Roth, Todd A. Nelson and Adam Kaloustian are executive producers and Chandrea Miller is the co-executive producer for 3 Ball/Eyeworks.
