HOLD ON FOR THE RIDE OF YOUR LIFE STORM CHASERS RETURNS FOR THIRD SEASON THIS FALL ON DISCOVERY
(SILVER SPRING, MD.) �- STORM CHASERS roars back this October for an allnew
season on Discovery Channel. Get a front row seat to nature's fury in the
heart of "Tornado Alley" as scientists, researchers and weather enthusiasts gear
up and hunker down in their pursuit of the ultimate tornado footage.
Reed Timmer and his team return with their newly armored chase vehicle "The
Dominator," racing to be first on the storm scene ahead of IMAX filmmaker Sean
Casey and his monster tank-like TIV (Tornado Intercept Vehicle). New this
season is veteran researcher and storm chaser Tim Samaras, whose even keel,
steady leadership is in marked contrast to the frenzied atmosphere and roller
coaster of emotions inside Timmer and Casey's teams.
"STORM CHASERS has become appointment television with astonishing
footage, terrifying excitement and unforgettable characters," said John Ford,
president and general manager, Discovery Channel.
Last year, Sean, still collecting footage for his dream IMAX film, continued his
quest to film from inside an actual tornado. After being paired the first two
seasons with researcher and long-time storm chaser Dr Joshua Wurman, Sean is
now with a new team of young, eager but inexperienced trackers. Can the
greenhorns rise to the challenge? And can Sean keep his cool managing them?
Meanwhile, Reed Timmer, along with chase buddies Joel and Chris, attempts to
keep his red hot streak of storm intercepts going. The team appears set to
continue its winning ways but when personal conflicts begin to creep in, can the
"dominating" go on?
STORM CHASERS is produced for Discovery Channel by Original Media. Charlie
Corwin, Lisa Bloch and Clara Markowicz are executive producers for Original
Media. Bill Howard is executive producer for Discovery Channel.
