NAPLES — ITZ Studios will give viewers a glimpse of the lives of two fifth-generation Kentucky tobacco men in a reality show airing on Country Music Television.

The first episode of Tobacco Wars will air on Saturday at 10 p.m. on the cable and satellite channel that reaches more than 91 million households. MTV, a unit of Viacom, owns the country music television station.

“We are excited to produce a television show on a major network like CMT and love that we are producing local TV commercials and feature films out of our studios in Naples, contributing to our local film industry,” says Chuck Ardezzone, the founder of ITZ Studios, in a statement.

“We are always looking for larger-than-life characters who live colorful lives in Southwest Florida and feature family-owned businesses where tension and conflict often explode,” Ardezzone says.
