Big Sam's Kentucky Auction (working title), an auction house series that will get six episodes. 

The pilot orders:

Turbulence, a game show set on an airplane. Interesting.

Payback With Trevor Moore is a hidden camera prank show hosted by Moore, a member of the Whitest Kids You Know comedy group.Moore

Laugh Truck a game show that pits three friends against one another in the back of a moving truck. Moving on...

Cold Hard Catch, which looks at an ice-fishing resort and its owner, who is in operations for only 10 weekends a year. 

Barnstormers, about men who bid on barns and then gut them. Okay...

The renewals:

Guinness World Records Gone Wild!, received a 10 episode order.
