U.S. cable net TruTV has greenlit The Safecrackers, a series from American Chainsaws Entertainment following two locksmith experts as they crack open lost and abandoned safes.

The 6 x half-hour unscripted series is set to debut on March 24, and stars Phil Crawford and his best friend Blaze as they travel across America to open up vaults containing anything from antiques to armored vehicles.

The Alabama locksmiths are capable of opening up the toughest vaults, and the series will also feature their family and friends. American Chainsaws Entertainment’s Duke Straub, Colt Straub and Royal Malloy serve as executive producers.

“Providing an in-depth look into a world rarely seen, The Safecrackers features fascinating characters, suspense, humor and surprising reveals in every episode,” said Chris Linn, president and head of programming at TruTV.
