"Savage Family Diggers," formerly known as "American Digger," on Spike TV is out to show there is treasure buried in the backyards of everyday Americans but that they just don't know it ... until now. The series follows former professional wrestler turned modern day relic hunter Ric Savage, as he and his team from American Savage target areas such as battlefields and historic sites in the hopes of striking it rich and capitalizing on unearthing and selling bits of American history. The only thing standing in their way are the homeowners themselves, who Savage must convince to allow them to dig up their property using high-tech ground penetrating equipment and one very large bulldozer. What artifacts they find, they sell for a substantial profit, but not before negotiating a deal to divide the revenue with the property owners. 

The team from American Savage is comprised of Ric's wife Rita Savage, a New Jersey native, their 25-year old son Giuseppe Savage who is the "muscle" of the operation and two artifact recovery experts, Rue Schumate and Bob Buttafuso.  



"Savage Family Diggers" is produced by Gurney Productions ("Auction Hunters"), owned by Scott and Deirdre Gurney. Sharon Levy is Spike TV's Executive Vice President, Original Series, Tim Duffy is Senior Vice President of Original Series for Spike TV and Alex Eastburg, Vice President of Original Series for Spike TV, serves as executive in charge of production.
