Quest has re-commissioned three of its home grown franchises Salvage Hunters, Supertruckers and Combat Dealers as part of its strategy to carry more UK produced content.
Salvage Hunters (15 x 60) series 10 is produced by Curve Media. Quest says the previous series had its highest rating episode on Quest this year and a spot in Quest’s top five highest ratings ever.
Supertruckers (8 x 60), produced by Lion Television, returns to the world of long distance trucking, following an entirely new haulage firm – North Yorkshire’s “Metcalfe Farms”.
Combat Dealers (10 x 60) brings Bruce Compton’s larger-than-life gang back for a third series, following impressive series growth from series one. The new series is again produced by Wag TV.
Simon Downing, SVP, Head of Quest, comments “We never lose sight of our audience and these iconic franchises deliver exactly what they crave – great stories and truly unique characters. Not only do these programmes super serve our core fans but broaden our audience appeal as the destination for original male interest factual entertainment formats.”
The slate was ordered by Simon Downing and commissioned by Victoria Noble, Senior Director & Commissioning Editor, Discovery Networks International.

For Quest, Oliver Wilson is Executive Producer on Salvage Hunters S10 and Combat Dealers S3 and Rob Holloway and Oliver Wilson are Executive Producer for Supertruckers S3.

For Supertruckers S3 Lion Television’s Nick Catliff and Nick Shearman are Executive Producers and Charlie Smith is Series Producer.
