First Family of Mississippi Barbecue Coming to The Shed

For the Orrison family, barbecuing isn't simply a habit; it's a way of life they've adopted in Mississippi, where they run a string of successful 'cue joints called The Shed. This loveably quirky and offbeat bunch is known for their over-the-top personalities and offers food to match, specializing in finger-lickin'-good ribs and from-scratch barbecue sauce. Together, brother-and-sister duo Brad Orrison and Brooke Lewis — the founders of The Shed — along with their parents, Daddy-O and Mamma Mia, are shining a light on their barbecue business as well as their day-to-day adventures on an all-new upcoming series, The Shed.

Premiering Sunday, Aug. 4 at 10pm, then airing every Monday night at the same time, The Shed will follow Brad, Brooke and an entire cast of "ShedHeads" inside the wild happenings at their restaurants. It will show off the eccentric dynamics at work as they run their business, compete in national 'cue competitions and maintain a strong family bond — all while observing "The Shed Philosophy." From the muddy swamps and garages to the bull-shaped barbecues at their holiday-lights-clad restaurants, the Orrisons prove what makes their brood one-of-a-kind and their award-winning meats worthy of the hype.
