The production, which is co-financed by Boat Rocker Studios and Discovery, will take place across North America in Toronto, Ottawa, Niagara, Los Angeles, Dallas and Chicago. Boat Rocker Rights holds the international distribution rights to the series. The show will air on Discovery in Canada in fall 2018.

Boat Rocker announced the launch of Crooked Horse in 2017 as it looked to expand its focus in the unscripted space. The new division launched with a pair of projects, including Late Nite Eats, which is produced in partnership with Cooking Channel in the U.S.

Following the launch of Crooked Horse, Boat Rocker in September 2017 announced it had acquired unscripted producer Proper Television and its distribution arm Proper Rights. Proper produces the reality format Canada’s Worst Driver, which has aired on Discovery in Canada for 13 seasons.
