History expands its original programming with five new series

HISTORY, formerly known as The History Channel, has vastly expanded its programming slate this season, greenlighting five new original scripted series while renewing six more. The network has ordered Yamashita’s Gold, American Butcher, Ax Men Reborn, all under working titles, alongside Brothers in Arms and Knight Fight.

Yamashita’s Gold will follow the last great mystery of WWII in which Japanese soldiers, led by General Yamashita, buried a treasure deep in the Philippine jungle. The competition series American Butcher will focus on master butchers carving their way through historical challenges, similar to Ax Men Reborn. Meanwhile, Knight Fight will be a competition series in which modern-day warriors battle using era-specific weaponry and armor, and Brothers in Arms is about two Army veterans who are experts at historical military weaponry.

History is currently on pace to finish the 10th consecutive year as a top 10 ad-supported cable networks in the coveted adult 25-54 demographic, thanks in part to shows like Knightfall and Vikings. So, to celebrate, the network is not only expanding its nonfiction programming slate with five new series, but six renewals as well. They include a massive 30-hour season six order of The Curse of Oak Island, a 10-episode second season of The Curse of Civil War Gold, Truck Night in America, which is History’s number two-rated new series this year. Also renewed are perennial hits Alone, Mountain Men and Swamp People.

History is committed to delivering entertaining, compelling and informative programming and the solid performances of our new nonfiction launches this year prove this content is resonating with our loyal audience,” said Eli Lehrer, History’s Executive Vice President of Programming. “Yamashita’s Gold, Knight Fight, Brothers in Arms, and American Butcher are the perfect companions to our existing slate of signature hit series, as we continue to invest in quality series rooted in history that our audiences trust.
