This March, Discovery Channel will premiere Machines of Glory (pictured), a competition series focusing on excavators, backhoes and skid steers, as well as the machine operators behind them.

The series, produced by Hallock Healey Entertainment, is hosted by Johnny Littlefield, who featured in ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and Discovery’s Dude Room.

In each episode, three highly skilled machine operator crews will compete in challenges and will be tested in speed, skill and power. Winners take home a cash prize.

“There hasn’t been a heavy equipment competition show like Machines of Glory,” said Scott Hallock, executive producer of Hallock Healey Entertainment. This Discovery show is a dream come true for us and anyone who played with their trucks in the sandbox when they were little.”

Hallock and Kevin Healey serve as executive producers, and Dan Munday is co-executive producer. For Discovery Channel, David Pritikin is executive producer.
