Discovery, Inc.-owned Science Channel has expanded its programming slate with the commissioning of two engineering series.
From Off The Fence comes World’s Most Epic, a series that reveals the tech and secret history behind a variety of vehicles such as airplanes, tanks, ships, cars, trains and more. Each episode will focus on a different class of vehicles, from ships loaded with cutting-edge tech and the world’s most exclusive business jet, to monster infantry fighting tanks and supercars like the Bugatti Chiron (pictured).
Executive producers for Off The Fence are Klaus Proff and Thilo Proff, alongside Science Channel’s Neil Laird.
Meanwhile, Engineering Catastrophes takes a look at the world’s biggest structural mistakes and the solutions used to solve them.
Produced by London-based BriteSpark Films, the series this series showcases some of the most outrageous structural disasters and gaffes, including a waterfront building in England that created a wind tunnel so strong, pedestrians have been blown over, and a Brazilian highway that is so close to buildings that neighborhood residents are concerned about hearing loss.
For BriteSpark Films, Nick Godwin is the executive producer. For Science Channel, Lindsey Foster Blumberg is supervising producer.
World’s Most Epic and Engineering Catastrophes premiere across Science Channel on April 5 at 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. ET/PT, respectively.
