International entertainment group Viasat World has partnered with Woodcut Media and TCB Rights to copro a new factual pop-science series How Hacks Work.

The new series (30 x 30) looks at ways to solve everyday issues with an unusual item or idea. Using footage from YouTubers and the viewing public, the program features a panel of comedians and scientists who deconstruct ‘How To…’ videos from around the world.

The panel offers insight into the science behind these hacks and breaks them down as they are brought to life through demonstrations by engineering expert Mike Sansom.

Each episode features clips covering a specific theme, such as cooking, technology, cars, sport, health and DIY, all culminating in a final ‘epic hack’.

Executive producers on the series are Seniha Tunaboylu, head of content and acquisitions, Viasat World; Derren Lawford and Adam Jacobs, Woodcut Media; and Paul Heaney, TCB Media Rights. Anna McVey joins Woodcut as series producer from Ricochet.

How Hacks Work is Viasat World’s first copro venture, which is being distributed internationally by TCB Media Rights who will be presenting it to buyers at MIPCOM in October.
