TLC is looking to stuff its schedule with a previously untapped reality subject: Taxidermy.
Reality net has signed on with producer Stiletto Television for a late fall special that will act as a backdoor pilot for an upcoming series. Untitled hour will examine different taxidermists around the country, focusing on their craft and the animals they work with, including domestic pets and an African elephant.
Exec producers for Stiletto are Mark Grove, Garry Kief and Troy Queen.
TLC, whose shows typically focus on topics such as food, weddings and fashion, has gone a bit rogue as of late. On Sunday, the cabler premiered “Strange Sex,” a six-part series examining all aspects of sexuality, including fetishes and unusual practices.
