U.S. net The Weather Channel will follow weather hackers and creatures that endure extreme climates in its upcoming series BrainStormers (working title, pictured above) and How Weather Created a Monster (w/t).

The 8 x 60-minute series BrainStormers follows three Colorado-based weather hackers who build inventions that harness weather power for everyday uses such as solar-operated water heaters and homemade mosquito traps. The show, produced by Outpost Entertainment and Crybaby Media, is set to debut in March.

Meanwhile, How Weather Created a Monster will visit far-flung locations around the world in order to reveal creatures surviving in extreme climates. The series – which is also 8 x 60 minutes – will be hosted by adventurer Sean Duggan.

The show will premiere in the last quarter of 2015, and is produced by Tornado Alley firm Karga Seven Pictures.
