U.S. net Discovery Channel has set a January 29 premiere date for Deadliest Job Interview (pictured), spotlighting the most perilous professions in the world.
The Sharp Entertainment-made six-part series will highlight eight of the world’s most dangerous professions by following newcomers, or “greenhorns,” as they enter the workforce. Putting life and limb on the line, the rookies will be forced to learn the ropes in an attempt to prove their competence and resolve.
The series is set to follow a number of hazardous professions, including Redwood Forest arborists, South African bush pilots, heavy haul truckers, iron erectors, underwater construction divers, volcanologists exploring active Italian volcano Mt. Stromboli, and wind turbine technicians.
Matt Sharp, Dan Adler and Johnny Petillo serve as executive producers for Sharp Entertainment, with Jason Cavanagh co-exec producing. For Discovery Channel, Joseph Schneier and Mitchell Rosenbaum are listed as executive producers, with Brian Peterson as coordinating producer.
Deadliest Job Interview is scheduled to air on January 29 at 10 p.m. EST/PST on Discovery Channel.
