Denver-Area Community United by a New National TV Series

Ultimate Fishing Experience TV Show Inspires Viewers To Help

Dozens of businesses and hundreds of residents teamed up to transform a Denver area home with adaptive features for retired Army Specialist, Aaron Bugg and his wife Lisa.  Aaron endured severe leg damage and other injuries as a result of his service in Iraq.

The adaptive remodel was part of the Ultimate Fishing Experience TV series, a new fishing show, recently added to the Thursday night primetime lineup on the NBC Sports Network.  Show Host and Co-creator, Keith Alan explains, “The Bugg project epitomizes what we are trying to achieve with the show every week.  By creating awareness for this young couple’s needs we were able to rally support from area businesses as well as a community of volunteers that included neighbors, Vietnam Veterans and Gold Star Parents that all wanted to help make life easier for this Hero.”

While Aaron and Lisa Bugg were being treated to their Ultimate Fishing Experience with Capt. C.A. Richardson, and enjoying their ocean front suite at the Tradewinds Island Resort on Florida’s St. Pete Beach, Executive Producer, Jason Wald traveled to the Bugg’s home in Brighton, CO to produce the closing segment of the show.  With tight deadlines on everybody’s mind, he was pleased to see that volunteer contractor Bret Hribar had already put the project in motion the moment the Buggs’ left for the airport. The remodel included new Kenmore appliances, new flooring and a Hydro Massage tub to aid Aaron’s leg therapy. Wald states, “This was such an incredible experience for all of us.  This was the first house remodel we tackled on the show and the volunteers were simply amazing.  They have no idea how much they have touched and inspired our crew.”

Hundreds of volunteers and support from Helmets to Hardhats, Sears and Denver area businesses like Shelf Genie, Naked Bait Co., Healthy Clean and Nordy’s BBQ not only made the project a success, they helped strengthen the community.  Since the production ended in January, Nordy’s BBQ has been hosting Ultimate Fishing Experience viewing parties every Thursday night.  This Thursday, Graham’s Carpet Network is teaming up with Nordy’s to host a viewing party for the episode they all worked on featuring Aaron and Lisa Bugg.

Viewers can meet the Buggs and see how their story inspired a community when Ultimate Fishing Experience airs Thursday night Feb. 23rd at 8:30 pm ET / 6:30 pm MT on the NBC Sports Network.
