Outdoor Channel’s “Rubber Foot Buffalo” Explores Adventures of Western U.S. Debuts June 12
DENVER (June 2, 2020) – When Mason City, Iowa police officer Terrance Prochaska was called to investigate a robbery of successful businessman Mark Holt in April 2011, little did they know it would be the start of a friendship that would land them together on Outdoor Channel’s new show: Rubber Foot Buffalo Adventures premiering at 7:00 p.m. ET on June 12, 2020.
“Rubber Foot Buffalo” is the nickname friends gave to Holt’s custom-built, four-wheel, all-terrain truck during an off-road adventure. The name stuck and Holt and Prochaska will be known to Outdoor Channel viewers as the “Rubber Foot Buffaloes” when their adventure show airs in June 2020.
Rubber Foot Buffalo Adventures follows the exploits of Holt and Prochaska as they journey throughout parts of the western United States (California and Nevada) in search of adventure, interesting people and untold stories. The desert of California’s “Death Valley” serves as the first stomping grounds of Season 1 with Holt and Prochaska off-roading through ghost towns, former mining towns and desert resorts long forgotten and abandoned. Along the way, the pair share stories and interview local characters – the late self-proclaimed thrill-seeker, daredevil, astronaut, Michael “Mad Mike” Hughes, shamans and hippies, to name a few – that must be seen to be believed.
The highly-dangerous and potentially-disastrous off-roading is the thread within the shows that take the pair throughout the Southern California desert and parts of Nevada. They discover gold, explore abandoned silver mines, a “hippie” commune and other local sites and attractions that some viewers may question but, ultimately, come away enlightened as a result of Holt and Prochaska’s curiosity.
“Rubber Foot Buffalo Adventures seems like a really strange name for a television show on Outdoor Channel until you watch it,” Outdoor Sportsman Group President and CEO, Jim Liberatore said. “The combination of adventure, outdoors, four-wheeling exploration and the characters they encounter create an interesting and spirited show that we believe our viewers will embrace.”
