The Wild Side – A New Local TV Series Coming Soon

Pipestone Flyer

Coming your way is a new television series, detailing the life of the average outdoorsman here in Alberta, the team they share the field with, and the families involved in accommodating their passion, named, ‘The WildSide’.

‘The WildSide’ is an outdoor themed reality television series currently in development that is set to begin production on its pilot episode on October 16th 2014.

The product of Millet, Alberta residents Jeff Stevenson and Tanner Bennett, the goal of The WildSide will be to bring viewers into the lives of the average outdoorsman. You will see how a group of individuals plan, prepare and execute days in the field, along with getting a firsthand perspective on how the families of our outdoorsman support them being away from home for countless days and weeks each year. Along with bringing our viewers first class hunting, fishing and backcountry footage across various terrains and areas of the Province, The WildSide will focus on what truly brings so many thousands of people into the outdoors on an annual basis — camaraderie.

Founding members Jeff Stevenson (31 years old) and Tanner Bennett (27 years old) have partnered up with Maximum Limit Productions out of Yellowknife Northwest Territories (Maximum Limit Fishing, Fur harvesters) to bring you along for the entire process that is involved in pursing the outdoors lifestyle. Along with founding members Jeff and Tanner, four other outdoorsmen will make up the remainder of the shows cast. Matt Bellrose of Edmonton Alberta, Cody Farmer of Beaumont Alberta, Jason Lamarche of Berwyn Alberta and Jason Schmutz of Fort Saskatchewan Alberta.

The six man crew has affectionately coined itself ‘Team WildSide’.

“The ultimate goal will be less about the killing aspect, although you will see some great footage of some wonderful hunting and fishing action, and more about what draws us average outdoorsman back into the field year after year. The process. The relationships with nature and the friendships we forge with others while spending time in the field.” Jeff Stevenson

“The one aspect I was really excited about when our production team provided some input was the chance to have the film crew dive right into the lives of our entire families to enable viewers to see how a family deals with their loved ones being gone for weeks on end”  Tanner Bennett
