'American Digger' Fans Rejoice

Spike TV has ordered 13 new episodes of 'American Digger' led by former professional wrestler-turned-modern-day relic hunter Ric Savage.
American Digger” will go into production this fall and new seasons will air in 2013.

About “American Digger”:
In the US, there are millions of historical relics buried in backyards just waiting to be discovered and turned into profit.  “American Digger” hopes to claim a piece of that pie as the series travels to a different city each week searching for high-value artifacts and relics, some of which have been untouched for centuries.  After pinpointing historical locations such as Civil War and Revolutionary War battlefields, Savage’s first task is to convince reluctant homeowners to let his team dig up their property using state-of-the-art metal detectors and heavy-duty excavation equipment.  The team will then sell any artifacts found for a substantial profit by consulting experts and scouring the antique and collectible markets, but not before negotiating a deal to divide the revenue with the property owners.
