Shelby “Swamp Man” Stanga, star of History’s “Ax Men” and Atchafalaya Swamp celebrity, is getting his own reality series on the network: “The Legend of Shelby the Swamp Man” debuts at 8 p.m. Aug. 6.
For the past four seasons, viewers of HISTORY’s hit series AX MEN followed the exploits of Shelby “Swamp Man” Stanga, the larger-than-life character who lives and logs in southern Louisiana. Born on the bayou, Shelby answers to no one and plays by his own rules. Most people think of the swamps as a place ridden with critters, mud and danger. For Shelby, it’s home.
Now, viewers will get to see what this legend of the Atchafalaya Swamp does to survive when he’s not diving for sinker cypress in gator-infested waters in THE LEGEND OF SHELBY THE SWAMP MAN, a new series premiering Tuesday, August 6 at 9pm ET on HISTORY.
Oh yeah, I’ll watch it. I think the networks secretly make fun of great Americans like Shelby. But the Swamp Man’ll get the last laugh with his paycheck. . .
