Mega Shredders airing on Science Channel Thursday November 7 at 8/7c!
TORONTO, Nov. 4, 2013 /CNW/ - How do you destroy the indesructible? For the Mega Shredders team down in Portland, Oregon, each day is a new challenge, and a new shred - from cars, trucks, tractors, and trailers to rollercoaster rides and pinball machines.
Mega Shredders goes inside a world where maverick engineers and master tradesmen build monster machines for multimillion dollar companies, and this 13-part half-hour original series by Toronto-based yap films is making it's way to Science Channel!
"At it's core, Mega Shredders is a series about incredible feats of engineering unlike anything you've ever seen, and viewers tune into Science Channel to explore the unexplored. It's a perfect match." says Elizabeth Trojian, executive producer and creator of Mega Shredders.
Elliott Halpern, president of yap films and executive producer of Mega Shredders, says "This series has it all - incredible science and amazing characters - something that Science Channel delivers on a consistent basis".
The Mega Shredders team makes industrial shredders in the most extreme environments imaginable - each one tailored to the job at hand, designed to cut through anything other companies can't get rid of. Each episode follows the all-too-real ups and downs of the team as they navigate a world few even knew existed before now. The men who build these monster machines are known to never back down from a challenge - which is why they're the go-to team for all jobs too dangerous, hardcore or just plain crazy.
Each shredder is a custom work of engineering art - a hulking million-dollar piece of machinery taller than a house, weighing close to 50 tons, with dozens of huge blades designed to shred anything it can get its claws on, and ripping through its own weight in material on a daily basis. Industries around the world rely on these metallic beasts to operate 24/7, 365 days a year - if they go down for even one day companies stand to lose millions of dollars.
Viewers will find Shredder Whisperer Lee, Brainiac Bob, gruff and rough Brillo, badass field tech Auguie, big boss Tom, Crusher King Dave and best frenemies Chris and Jon on the Mega Shredders assembly floor. Together, the Mega Shredders team will tear through anything that stands in their way as they tackle super high-stakes jobs in some of the nastiest environments on the planet!
