ADDITIONAL NOTES: completed airing its first season on 4/11/15; has yet to be renewed for a second season
DESCRIPTION: (from El Rey's press release, March 2015) El Rey Network will debut the all-new eight-episode unscripted series, "Cutting Crew" with a 24-hour marathon event on Saturday, April 11th at beginning at 6:00 am ET. The season will restart at 2:00 PM ET and 10:00 PM ET giving viewers binge-watching options throughout the day. When this raucous group of barbers is in the house there isn't a moment of peace for the staff or those who dare to make their way into their magic chairs. The hour-long show will also air Wednesdays at 9pm beginning April 15th, following the 8 PM ET/PT airing of "Lucha Underground," the addictive, action-packed freestyle wrestling franchise from Emmy Award(R)-winning producer Mark Burnett. "Cutting Crew" explores the edgy artistry of a dynamic team of barbers who have made names for themselves by thinking outside the stylist box. Showcasing masterful motifs that are anything but ordinary, this group of creatives, led by award-winning barber Amit Corso, know how to make a statement. Whether they are executing a simple fade, cutting hair in the shape of the Pittsburgh skyline, or even giving some haircuts to local cows, the passionate team of "scissor-happy" artistes use razors and clippers to get the job done. Although there is serious dedication to the craft, barbering isn't the only thing going on at the shop -- in between the fades and shaves, this band of barbers finds time to bicker, debate, joke around and cook up challenges that range from testing feats of strength to more juvenile endeavors and hijinks. But in the end, it's the camaraderie in this diverse group that is at the heart of "Cutting Crew."
