"Porter Ridge" (TV show) is a comedic reality docu-series on Discovery Channel that takes viewers out of the swamp and into the hills. On the Ridge, playing with bears, holding family demolition derbies and wearing a shirt is optional, but their code of life is simple: respect the lord, love your family and watch each other's backs. Meet the folks of "Porter Ridge," a tight-knit community of colorful characters that are unlike any other.

Tucked away in the rolling hills of Indiana, far from big city life, this isolated, lawless community lives by its own set of rules. The eccentric band of misfits in "Porter Ridge" often butt heads but ultimately join together to keep their unique "Hilljack" way of life afloat. Although their lifestyle may not be acceptable by most people's standards, you can't help but laugh at all the crazy antics that are an everyday occurrence on "Porter Ridge."

"Porter Ridge" is produced for Discovery Channel by Gurney Productions. Executive producers are Scott Gurney and Deirdre Gurney. Co-executive producers are Todd Hurvitz, Doug Weitzbuch and Brandon Killion. For Discovery Channel, executive producers are Joe Weinstock and Denies Contis.
