From daily walks and scrubbing the sties, to betrayal and ruthless competition, expect no shortage of pigs and no shortage of drama in PIG ROYALTY. This is a universe of fierce pig show coaches and ‘pig parents’ who live and breathe pig shows.
Audiences will meet the two rivaling families, the Baleros, and the Rhins. Matriarch Michelle Balero leads her champion daughters McKayla, McKenzie, and McCall who train their cousin Taytain "The Nugget" Diaz. These girls have a reputation for drama, but they have the buckles to back it up. On the other side, matriarch Jodi leads the Rihn’s, whose lineup consists of her daughters, Kammi, and Kylie, as well as her son Kannen. Jody Rihn’s friends, the Tyks, are headed by mothers Mandy and Kristen, who are underdogs looking to get their son Brandon back in the game.
This multi-generational rivalry consumes the lives of the Bolero and Rihn pig parents and trickles down to the kids as they compete to have the most celebrated pigs in Texas. Get ready to be pulled in by the belt buckle as the matriarchs and their daughters prepare their preteen protégées for competition. These competitions are no walk in the park, and competitors will stop at nothing to win. Find out who will be crowned the winner and who will be left out in the pig pen.
