(Indian Land, SC – March 28, 2019) – General-entertainment network INSP has greenlit a new original Western adjacent reality/docuseries titled Turquoise Fever. Slated to premiere this summer, the series follows the Otteson family as they work to grow their turquoise mining empire outside of Las Vegas, Nevada. The announcement was made by Doug Butts, INSP’s SVP of Programming.
“Turquoise Fever, like most of our original programming, features the triumphs and challenges of everyday heroes who courageously endeavor to carve out their way of life in America,” said Butts. “We believe our viewers will be captivated watching this family put their lives on the line to secure these rare and valuable gemstones. The Ottesons are engaging and their adventures are truly remarkable.”
For three generations the Otteson clan has battled blistering hot days and freezing cold nights to unearth some of the most sought-after turquoise in the world. The conditions in the Great Basin Desert are frequently inhospitable, and the dangers intense. From detonating explosives on treacherous slopes to the pressure of meeting the demands of international buyers, every day is an adventure. And, there is always a thin line between complete failure and striking it rich.
Turquoise Fever, which will be comprised of six episodes, is produced for INSP by Glassman Media.
INSP is available nationwide to more than 76M households via Dish Network (channel 259), DirecTV (channel 364), Verizon FiOS (channel 286), AT&T U-verse (channel 564) and more than 2,800 cable systems.
