SCIENCE CHANNEL DEBUTS ALL-NEW EPISODES OF THE HIT ENGINEERING SERIES BUILD IT BIGGER

-- World Premieres Begin Monday, April 20, 2009, at 10 PM (ET/PT) --

(Silver Spring, Md.) �- Professional architect Danny Forster is back to shed light on the engineering and science of the world�s largest and most complex construction projects in an all-new season of BUILD IT BIGGER exclusively on Science Channel. Airing Mondays at 10 PM (ET/PT) beginning Monday, April 20, 2009, Forster spans the globe to bring viewers an inside look at the creation of enormous bridges, skyscrapers, resorts, ships, stadiums and even beaches.

The first episode finds Forster in Texas at the site of the new Dallas Cowboys stadium. Featuring interviews with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and on-site project managers, viewers are immersed in what is quickly being considered the biggest, boldest, most groundbreaking stadium in America. At three million square feet the stadium is setting a precedent in architectural design and construction and features 80,000 seats, the largest and longest retractable roof ever constructed, the largest operable glass door in the world and two 180 foot long HD video screens.

In true BUILD IT BIGGER style, the series puts viewers at the very heart of massive engineering projects from the manufacturing and fabrication of building materials to the multifaceted, meticulous process of putting the materials together into one complete structure. Along the way Forster breaks down the unique architectural challenges of each construction site by introducing viewers to the professionals responsible for making it all come together; trying his hand at some of their jobs; and interviewing architects, engineers and building crews on-site to get an inside perspective on the science behind each project. The latest computer graphics round out his explanations to help viewers gain a greater understanding of the scope and scale of each undertaking.

This season BUILD IT BIGGER also takes viewers on the U.S. Navy�s newest amphibious ship and the Pascagoula, Miss. shipyard where others like it are being built; to NASA in Cape Canaveral, Fla.; to Hong Kong as construction continues on Stone Cutters Bridge; to Panama for the widening of the Panama Canal; Peru; and the United Arab Emirates.

BUILD IT BIGGER is produced for Science Channel by Powderhouse Productions. Joel Olicker is the executive producer for Powderhouse. Christo Doyle is the executive producer for Science Channel.
