Premise: Every network is looking for its own ``Duck Dynasty,'' A&E Network's wildly popular cash cow reality series that has made the charming Robertson clan of Monroe, La., into TV stars. It's produced by Gurney Productions, the same creators behind Discovery Channel's ``Porter Ridge,'' and Discovery is certainly hoping that symmetry -- in addition to a similar wholesome theme -- helps lightning strike the same place twice. ``Porter Ridge'' takes viewers to a remote town in southern Indiana, where an eccentric band of misfits lives by a simple code: Respect the Lord, love your family, and watch one another's backs. The colorful characters include Terry Porter, the owner of an auto-parts junkyard who is perpetually searching for a get-rich-quick scheme and a way to pull a fast one on Porter's chief rival, Dog Killer Ridge; Jeff, who lives with truffle-hunting brown bears; renowned hustler Dirty Andy; country calendar model Kayla; and Elvis Larry, a good-natured jack-of-all-trades.
