NEW YORK (AP) - The Texas heat is forcing the A&E television network to call “time out” on a new series about hunting hogs.

The network’s “American Hoggers” series was set to premiere Aug. 16, focusing on the Campbell family of central Texas. They hunt wild boar seen as a scourge by some residents and ranchers.

A&E said Wednesday that producers have cut back on the filming schedule due to high heat. The series will instead premiere sometime in fall, at a date to be determined.

David McKillop, executive vice president of programming at A&E, says that “in this record-breaking heat, even the hogs can use a break.”
