'Pawn Stars' gets Cajun spin-off on History
Megahit Pawn Stars is getting a spinoff on History channel.
The network is launching Cajun Pawn Stars, chronicling the daily business at the Silver Dollar Pawn & Jewelry Center in Alexandria, Louisiana. The move takes one of cable’s most popular shows and combines it with the recent trend of bayou-based reality titles like History’s Swamp People.
Silver Dollar Pawn is one of the biggest pawn shops in the South, storing more than 100,000 items and should give viewers a rather different style of inventory compared to the Las Vegas-based original (for one thing, the store trades in livestock). Fourteen episodes have been ordered with a premiere set for Jan. 8.
