ANIMAL PLANET'S "TREEHOUSE MASTERS" RETURNS WITH MORE ARBOREAL MASTERPIECES ON MAY 30

-- New Series Redwood Kings Shows Off Majestic Wood Creations --

(Los Angeles,March 20, 2014) - Animal Planet announced today that sophomore hit series, TREEHOUSE MASTERS, returns to its Friday night lineup beginning Friday, May 30, at 10 PM (ET/PT) with new episodes. Similar in nature to TREEHOUSE MASTERS, the network green-lit new series, REDWOOD KINGS, to premiere in July.

In TREEHOUSE MASTERS, tree whisperer Pete Nelson grants people's dreams of turning peaceful nooks in nature into the ultimate escapes. In the upcoming episodes, Pete creates a Texan man cave in the sky, a two-tiered, flower petal paradise treehouse for a consummate gardener in Tulsa and a multi-level house for country singer Brian Kelley of the award-winning group, Florida Georgia Line, who craves a place to escape with his wife the pressures of day-to-day life.

Last season, "Treehouse Masters" raked in 1.3M P2+ viewers across its premieres and was the network's second-most-watched series in 2013.

REDWOOD KINGS uncovers the artistry that goes into turning ancient reclaimed redwood trees into creative works of art. Twin brothers, Ron and John Daniels, work side-by-side at their theming company creating carvings of animated characters, movie and theme park facades and even treehouses! It isn't all a forest fairy tale though -- things can get splintery when it comes time for "little" brother Ron to turn off the chainsaw and reign in John "the carving cowboy" to keep every project on schedule and on budget. In the premiere season, the guys and their 40-person crew create a life-sized replica of a gold stamp mill and spinning waterwheel, head back to the glory days of the gold rush for a rustic roadside mall in California; build a Noah's Ark-themed treehouse for the youngest members of a small family church and design a massive 22-room, interactive theme park experience in a historic building in San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf.
