Hog-hunting TV series delayed due to Texas heat

NEW YORK

The network's "American Hoggers" series was set to premiere Aug. 16, focusing on the Campbell family of central Texas. They hunt wild boar seen as a scourge by some residents and ranchers.

A&E said Wednesday that producers have cut back on the filming schedule due to high heat. The series will instead premiere sometime in fall, at a date to be determined.

David McKillop, executive vice president of programming at A&E, says that "in this record-breaking heat, even the hogs can use a break."
