CLASH OF THE OZARKS Premieres 2/25 on Discovery
Kerry Wayne Evans' family has been in Hardy for six generations, dating back to the 1850's. Raised on the south side of the tracks in a tiny one-room house, Kerry's family struggled to make ends meet. They survived by working hard and learning to live off the land. The Evans' are forward thinkers who are fiercely protective of everything they have worked for. Kerry believes people should police themselves and be self-sufficient rather than relying on the authorities. This outlook has gotten him beaten, stabbed and arrested more times than his scars reveal. He is a savvy businessman whose sole purpose is to bring progress to the sleepy town of Hardy, and to improve life for those that live there. This means change, a word not everyone is comfortable with - least of all Crowbar Russell - and Kerry's intentions aren't entirely selfless. He has a fondness for money, and he'll do just about anything to build up his empire.
Whose side will you be on? On Tuesday, February 25 at 10pm ET/PT, Discovery Channel invites viewers to step right into The Middle of this small-town dispute. Hardy is full of quirky characters such as Jimmy Haney, a mountain man who doesn't own a pair of shoes and hasn't lived in a house for years, and Sevella, a tough gun-toting elderly woman who is fiercely protective of her family and is rumored to be clairvoyant. Inheriting grudges born out of inter-clan murder, territory disputes and everything in between, the modern generations of these two families must find a way to share the same hills if they're going to survive. As Crowbar puts it, "Your land is everything and you're nothing without it. It's code in Ozark Hills. Protect your family. Defend your land. Destroy anyone that gets in your way."
CLASH OF THE OZARKS is produced for Discovery by Leftfield Pictures, where Brent Montgomery and David George are executive producers with Ryan Pender and James Dugan as co-executive producers. For Discovery Channel, Joseph Schneier is executive producer with Max Micallef as coordinating producer.
