Esther the Wonder Pig to Get Reality Show

The famed pig and her 43 rescued animal friends may soon become reality TV stars thanks to series Estherville.

Esther the Wonder Pig may soon have her own reality series entitled Estherville. In 2013, Esther was misrepresented as a micro pig to her adoptive dads Steve Jenkins and Derek Walter and has since grown to a hefty 650-pounds. In caring for Esther, Jenkins and Walter realized that eating animals no longer aligned with their morals and shared Esther’s story in order to promote veganism. In 2014, the family opened micro-sanctuary Happily Ever Esther in Ontario, Canada in the famed pig’s honor, and with the aim of rescuing other farmed animals. The new series is currently being produced in Los Angeles and episodes will be filmed at the sanctuary, where 43 other rescued animals will make guest appearances. “Nothing that Esther does is typical,” Jenkins said, “and she’s gained a following and support for everything she does.” In addition to a book released last summer about the influential pig, Esther’s dads plan to publish another book and a children’s book next year.
