"Filthy Riches" (TV show) is a reality docu-series on National Geographic Channel that travels the country with industrious Americans who prove they're not afraid to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty in order to make a living.

A very unconventional workplace exists just outside of the busy cities and suburbs, in the great American wild. But only a select few know exactly where to look and how to support themselves and their families by heading out into the wilderness. Whether it's digging wild ginseng in a Kentucky holler or wrangling eels from white water, these men and women are willing to lace up their boots, spill a little blood and work their fingers to the bone.

This series tromps into the wild with blue-collar pioneers who shirked conventional 9-to-5 careers to make their living in the deep rivers, soggy mudflats and wild backwoods of America.

Eels, mushrooms, ginseng, bloodworms and burls are important natural resources. Their harvesting goes back many generations and is now subject to federal, state and local laws. Sunrise to sunset, this tenacious group of entrepreneurs must rely on their own strength and determination to take on the open wilderness and make their living on "Filthy Riches."
