A&E to Premiere Another Pest Control Reality Show

News Coverage

“Rambug” follows Robert Mercante and his team at Brooklyn, N.Y.-based Rambug Pest Control.

| March 21, 2012

NEW YORK — A&E Network announced the upcoming reality series “Rambug,” which follow Robert Mercante and his team at Brooklyn, N.Y.-based Rambug Pest Control. A&E described the show as “a series about a brawny group of hard-working, over-the-top Italian exterminators from Brooklyn who dress in camouflage and wage war on the city's nastiest critters. "Rambug" premieres Saturday, May 5, at 10 p.m. (EST) on A&E.

Here’s A&E’s description of the show.

Robbie "Rambug" is the burly but loveable owner of Rambug Pest Control. With the help of his eccentric team, which consists of actual family members and friends who have been around so long they feel like family, Robbie runs one of the most successful extermination businesses in New York City. This offbeat, macho team rides around town in a truck with a giant cockroach mounted to the top and fearlessly battles everything from rats to roaches to bed bugs. . .to each other, Rambo style.

The Rambug Pest Control team is led by Robbie and supervised by his older brother Ralph. They both ultimately answer to their traditional Italian mother Mimi. The general manager of the business is Big Rob, who struggles to juggle his work duties, his relationship with office manager Rose and being a father to an often impertinent Lil Rob, who also works at the company. Lil Rob's best friend and wingman James and rat-trapper extraordinaire Steve round out the Rambug crew.

In the premiere episode, "The Bug Stops Here," when Lil Rob slacks off at work, Robbie forces his dad Big Rob to step in. All hell breaks loose when Lil Rob threatens to fight his supervisor Ralph. At the end of the day, for this unconventional band of brothers, Rambug isn’t just a job. . .it's a family.

"Rambug" is produced by Michael Levitt Productions for A&E Network. Executive producers for Michael Levitt Productions are Michael Levitt and Jill Goularte, with Curnal Achilles Aulisio as Co-Executive Producer. Executive producers for A&E Network are David McKillop, Elaine Frontain Bryant and Lily Neumeyer.
