ADAM SAVAGE RETURNS TO SCIENCE CHANNEL

"SAVAGE BUILDS" PREMIERES JUNE 12 AT 10PM

Peter Jackson, Gary Oldman, and Tory Belleci Among Featured Guests

(NEW YORK) - Putting his unending curiosity and nearly unparalleled inventiveness to the test, Adam Savage is taking on bigger and badder builds in a new eight-episode series premiering June 12 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Science Channel. From a 3-D printed titanium suit of armor inspired by Marvel Studios' Iron Man films that actually flies to experimenting with the highly volatile liquid nitroglycerin, SAVAGE BUILDS will propel Adam into explosive and unpredictable worlds with high stakes payoffs.

Each episode of SAVAGE BUILDS will focus on one project as Adam collaborates with notable experts in their fields, friends, colleagues, and some of his favorite people on the planet. Among those Adam enlists to help sow controlled mayhem are Academy Award-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson, longtime MythBusters collaborator Tory Belleci and Academy Award-winning actor Gary Oldman. Nothing is guaranteed of course when venturing into the unknown, but whether a build is a success or failure, the results are sure to thrill.

In the premiere episode, Adam calls on Richard Browning, the inventor and chief test pilot of the Gravity Jet Suit, which is powered by five 1000 horsepower mini jet engines, to help get Adam's titanium Marvel Studios' Iron Man-inspired suit to fly.

Other episodes include:

· Adam attempts to create a working version of one of history's most notorious engineering failures, the British military's World War II rocket-propelled explosive weapon, The Great Panjandrum. Helping with the design is the lead engineer of the Mars Science Lab's EDL (Entry, Descent, Landing phase), NASA engineer Adam Steltzner.

· Inventor, maker and roboticist Simone Giertz, and maker Laura Kampf help Adam build three monsters of destruction inspired by Mad Max and other post-apocalyptic worlds using only junk cars and the materials they can salvage from a scrapyard.

· Adam sets out to forge his own version of King Arthur's legendary sword Excalibur - using the iron from a meteorite.

· Adam does a deep dive into the infamously deadly, impact-sensitive explosive nitroglycerin - and stages a series of daring and dangerous tests to see if this legendarily volatile and unstable explosive lives up to the legend.

· Adam, with the help of his friend Gary Oldman, seeks to build a multi-functional weapon inspired by the classic film The Fifth Element.

· It's absurd engineering taken to the extreme as Adam stages a Mega Food Fight for the ages - after all, what's more absurd than figuring out how to make a rapid fire hot dog gun? Adam's competition for this challenge? His old Mythbusters pal Tory Belleci.

· Adam travels to New Zealand to meet up with esteemed filmmaker Peter Jackson to indulge one of the director's many passions, World War I. Jackson has a world-class collection of WWI fighter planes - totally authentic except for the fact that the machine guns don't fire real ammunition, so actual "dogfights" are off the menu. Adam wants to remedy that situation with the most ambitious, high-tech and high-flying aerial dogfight ever attempted.

SAVAGE BUILDS is produced by Whalerock Studios, LLC in association with Savage Industries for Science Channel. Executive Producers are Adam Savage, Lloyd Braun, Chris Cowan and John Tessier. Executive Producer for Science Channel is Wyatt Channell.
