His books landed in the hands of an executive of Discovery TV. When he finished reading both books, he researched the author (Mr. Brown) and fell intrigued by his way of life.

Accordingly, he reached out to Mr. Brown to secure a reality TV deal for a show that would document the family’s unconventional way of life.

Despite the apparent drawbacks, they moved forward with the deal primarily for the rewards that would transpire, securing their children a better financial future.

The premise behind American Bush People was for the camera crew to document the family as they raised all seven children while utilizing the natural resources of the virgin Alaskan land.

The idea behind the show being a success was due to the fact that the Brown family has gone back in time with respect to how they choose to live. Considering the show’s success, each cast member would enjoy substantial monetary rewards.

The series premiered on May 6, 2014, when Brown was 27.

There was worry about the show’s success, but it turned out to be a massive hit receiving over 5 million viewers per episode in its early days. Accordingly, it was renewed for the unforeseeable future.
