WCC and MDFP encourage those who are not able to make it to the watch party to tune in live, set their DVR or watch online when the program airs for the first time at 9pm CT on Animal Planet and use the hashtag #BareHandsRescue. Local support for this initial episode will be a determining factor in a full season of episodes getting the green light from the studio. Executive Producer Michael D. Francis explains the importance of a season order and how it will help the region. "Long term TV and film production helps the local economy by creating new jobs and supporting a variety of locally owned businesses."

"Bare Hand Rescue" encourages viewers to learn about urban wildlife, understand what is myth and what is fact about many species, and what to do when animals and humans get a little too close for comfort. The pilot episode was filmed over seven days in the Arnold, Kirkwood, and Ballwin areas and focuses on Beran and the WCC team dealing with such native fauna as brown bats, raccoons, Eastern grey squirrels, magpies, beavers, coyotes, rattlesnakes and skunks.
