World-Record Shotgun Shooter Patrick Flanigan to Debut Shell Shocked! on Sportsman Channel
Flanigan Takes on All Challenges, All Champions, All Disciplines
New Berlin, WI – (December 13, 2011)– Sportsman Channel, the leader in outdoor TV for the American Sportsman, has added top-flight and “Xtreme” sport shooter, Patrick Flanigan, to launch the new original series, Shell Shocked! with Patrick Flanigan. The weekly half-hour series will bring viewers on an action-packed journey as Flanigan shatters clay targets and the will of his would-be challengers. This Sportsman Channel production premieres on Monday, December 26, 2011 at 9:30 p.m. E/P.
Patrick Flanigan puts his “Xtreme” shooting talents to the test as he travels across the country to compete against marksmen of all types, from world champions to local aces. Flanigan will also bring viewers behind the scenes of his shooting life and share his extensive knowledge of the sport. He is known country-wide as the “fastest shotgun shooter in the world” and is prepared to show viewers why he carries this special moniker.
“We are incredibly excited to partner with Patrick and give our viewers an insight into his remarkable abilities. Not only is Patrick a world-record holding shotgun shooter, he is also an amazingly disciplined athlete who trains hard to be at the top of his field,” said Greg Trager, VP of Programming and Production. “A personality like Patrick’s is a great addition to the best shooting lineup on television.”
Each episode will feature one challenge designed by Flanigan and one by his guest shooter. Viewers will most certainly enjoy the in-depth look at the challenges as each shooter provides a crash course on their challenge. Disciplines in this first season include Cowboy Fast Draw, 3-Gun, Machine Gun, Cowboy Mounted Shooting and, of course, just about every clay-bird busting shotgun challenge that’s ever sprung from Flanigan’s fertile mind.
