“Behind every brilliant fireworks presentation is a crew of crazy mavericks working like mad to design, set up and implement the show while not blowing themselves up in the process,” said executive producer David Gullason in a statement. “Viewers will get a behind the scenes look into just what it takes to be a pyro pro.”

Omni Film is also in production on season three of docu-series Ice Pilots NWT. Season two currently airs on History Television Canada, while series one will debut in the U.S. on National Geographic Channel on April 22.
