An Oklahoma pool company has been chosen for a reality series called "Pool Kings" on the DIY Network slated to debut Memorial Day at 9:00 pm (dates and times subject to change-please check listings)
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, May 23, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Caviness Landscape Design, a small Oklahoma pool and landscape company, makes it's debut on a new reality series called "Pool Kings" slated to make it's debut on Monday, May 30th (Memorial Day) at 9:00 pm CST on the DIY Network (see promo here).
The company's president, Kelly Caviness said that production companies started reaching out to them about three years ago for a new idea on a series about small, family-owned pool companies that build unique swimming pools and landscapes. Ultimately, Pie Town Productions, who's hit series "Flip or Flop" and "House Hunters" flew out to Oklahoma and shot a promo. HGTV/DIY Networks chose Caviness for the series. Filming began in 2013 and finished early 2015.
"While it was a little unnerving having a camera right up in your face continually, it was an exciting time for us, as the film crew followed my sons Cameron, Christian and me as well as our landscape architect Marissa to shoot behind-the-scenes on what a pool build looks like for us and all the circumstances and hurdles we cross to create these out-of-the-box creations for homeowners", Kelly said. "The film crew was there from the start of the dig to the final reveal. It was a very surreal experience."

Currently there are four episodes, and Caviness is the debut. The episode highlights two pools in Oklahoma, one smaller pool for a family of four and an epic "Pirate Theme" pool with a 2,500 sq.ft. grotto, animated pirates, a hidden treasure room, swim-through waterfall and lazy river.
How the show is received will determine whether a second season is made. "The national exposure that will bring Oklahoma into the spotlight and showcase a small Oklahoma company's creativity is invaluable" said Caviness, "and swimming pools are the new "hot" theme on cable television."
"Pool Kings" will premier May 30 at 9:00 pm on the DIY Network (time may change, please check local listing)
