"Porter Ridge," a new Discovery Channel reality sitcom about backwoods men with long beards, sometimes talking about Jesus, may seem at first glance like a spin-off from A&E's hit show "Duck Dynasty," but the producer behind both shows asserts that "Porter Ridge" is completely different than "Duck Dynasty."
"Porter Ridge is more about freedom verses family," Scott Gurney, executive producer for both shows, explain to The Christian Post in a Thursday interview. While he said both shows aim to be family-friendly, Gurney contrasted the neighborhood focus of the new show to the Robertson family starring in "Duck Dynasty."
