U.S. cable net History has commissioned FremantleMedia-owned Original Productions to produce Inspector America, a series following infrastructure safety inspector Timothy Galarnyk as he travels across the States evaluating the stability of structures.

The one-hour series will premiere April 17 at 10 p.m. EST, and is exec produced by Thom Beers and Philip D Segal, with Jeff Conroy the co-exec producer for Original Productions.

“America’s infrastructure is in need of attention,” said Dirk Hoogstra, History’s senior VP of development and programming, “but this series isn’t about pointing fingers. Local officials all over the country are doing their best to fix degrading infrastructures; some of which go back to the turn of the last century and this show can be an advocate for them.

“These structures are living history and this series is evaluating engineering technologies past and present through a modern lens.”

The series will take Galarnyk to six American locations that have infrastructure challenges, with upcoming episodes travelling to Minneapolis/St. Paul, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Detroit, Las Vegas and Seattle.

Mike Stiller is the executive producer for History.
