ALL-NEW ANIMAL PLANET SERIES "RESTORATION WILD" TURNS NATURE'S LEFTOVERS INTO LIVEABLE WORKS OF WONDER

-- Six-Part Series Following Master Reclaimer Jay Chaiken Begins Friday, November 6, at 9 PM ET/PT --

(Silver Spring, MD) - The American landscape is dotted with natural relics of all shapes and sizes begging for rediscovery - from fallen trees and decrepit barns to abandoned railroad cars. Forgotten by time, concealed by the environment and engulfed by the landscape, these weathered remnants tell unique stories - but are often dismissed as trash. Enter Jay Chaikin, master reclaimer, restoration expert and visionary designer with a passion to bring people closer to the natural environment. In the all-new series RESTORATION WILD, which premieres Friday, November 6, at 9 PM ET/PT, Chaikin scours the countryside to reclaim abandoned items and transform them into livable, spectacular spaces, helping his clients to reconnect with nature.

Chaikin and his highly skilled RESTORATION WILD team are not only searching deep into the woodlands for the ruins of yesterday, they're using them to create environments that look as if they were placed there by nature. In the premiere episode, Chaikin and his RESTORATION WILD crew head to a trout farm in North Carolina where they're tasked with creating a rustic retreat that overlooks a breathtakingly beautiful waterfall. The catch: the building must flow seamlessly with the land and appear to be a century old. With limited resources, Chaikin looks to the land to help deliver a jaw-dropping result.

This season, the team embarks on a cross-country renovation road trip, bringing an eye for design and expert craftsmanship to places in need of a facelift. Additional locations and projects by the RESTORATION WILD team include the following:

· Full transformation of a Silo bar at Chanteclaire Farms in Friendsville, Maryland

· Restoration of an original train car (circa 1800) at Aw Shucks Farm in Monroe, North Carolina

· Construction of a full-scale brewery shop at Buckley's Mountainside Canoe and Brew in Mount Pleasant, Michigan

· Renovation of a 1940s bus in the Rocky Mountains into a one-of-a-kind guesthouse.

RESTORATION WILD is produced for Animal Planet by Loud TV. For Animal Planet, Dawn Sinsel is executive producer. For Loud TV, Nick Rigg, Brent Montgomery, David George and Jordana Hochman are executive producers.
