DESCRIPTION: (from Discovery's press release, December 2013) St. Louis has been on the world stage for centuries. But after industry left the city, many of the city's once-thriving factory and warehouse districts became Rust Belt boneyards. For Sam Coffey and his salvage crew, this urban wasteland is a goldmine ripe for plunder. Coffee and his crew break into abandoned buildings and rescue historic treasures doomed for a landfill and transform them into timeless pieces coveted by collectors in SALVAGE CITY, premiering on Discovery with three back-to-back episodes beginning Sunday, Dec. 22 at 11 AM ET/PT. Coffey, a St. Louis native, works hard to preserve the heritage of his hometown, even at the risk of arrest or great bodily harm. With his wisecracking junkyard giant Chris Trotter, designer/business partner Mia Brown, and his loyal German Shepard Hektor by his side, anything is possible. After years of carving out a reputation as a master carpenter and earning local fame exploring a network of caves beneath St. Louis where brewers like Anheuser Busch used to store their beer, Coffey turned his passions into a business, The Factory, where the SALVAGE CITY crew transform items salvaged from abandoned buildings into unique industrial art pieces and furnishings.
