A cable network is leveraging its top-rated show with a weapons-themed spinoff. Announcing plans today for the new show, “Hardcore Pawn: Fort Bragg,” a spinoff of its top-rated “Hardcore Pawn,” was TruTV, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The new series “will revolve around the staff and customers at Guns Plus, a South Carolina pawn shop specializing in weapons and military equipment,” the story reports. “Situated near one of the largest military bases in the country, Guns Plus is staffed by many veterans while its customers consist largely of armed services personnel and their families.”
The network has ordered seven episodes of the show, from Zodiak USA, set to premiere later this year.
TruTV also picked up a sixth season of “Hardcore Pawn,” the story notes.
In a statement, Marc Juris, executive VP and COO of TruTV, said: "We have had such tremendous success with ‘Hardcore Pawn,’ it makes sense to expand the concept into a franchise with ‘Hardcore Pawn: Fort Bragg.’ The new ‘Hardcore Pawn: Fort Bragg’ also gives us the opportunity to introduce viewers to some of the incredible men and women who serve in the military and whose stories will play an important part in the show."
