Discovery Networks International is giving viewers an inside look at the world’s most outrageous – and sometimes hilarious – engineering blunders in the brand new 6x60’ series from BriteSpark Films, INCREDIBLE ENGINEERING BLUNDERS: FIXED. From sinking skyscrapers to back-to-front bridges, aerospace engineer-turned-international engineering journalist Justin Cunningham investigates these jaw-dropping errors by getting on-site with exclusive access to the blunders and their extraordinary fixes. INCREDIBLE ENGINEERING BLUNDERS: FIXED premieres internationally on Discovery Networks International’s factual channels across more than 220 countries and territories, beginning August 2015.
Each episode of INCREDIBLE ENGINEERING BLUNDERS: FIXED features Cunningham, local experts and investigators from every corner of the globe examining the site of each construction blooper. As a team, they leave no stone unturned to find out exactly what went wrong and work together to discover the ingenious solutions being put in place. From faulty towers to demolition disasters, fat trains to crooked coastlines, sinking airports to ski slope landslides, Cunningham and the globe-trotting team pack each episode with fascinating visuals, fact-based science and research, and incredibly immersive technology.
“INCREDIBLE ENGINEERING BLUNDERS: FIXED is full of great stories, incredible history and science, striking visuals and daring engineering solutions to head-scratching problems,” said Elizabeth McIntyre, Vice President, Production & Development, Factual, Discovery Networks International. “Justin provides a unique combination of hands-on engineering experience and high-end journalistic investigation, making him the perfect host when it comes to understanding the science behind the builds.”
Justin loves engineering when it works; he hates it when it doesn’t. Why? Because ordinary people are left with the fall-out when things go wrong. In INCREDIBLE ENGINEERING BLUNDERS: FIXED, he acts as a champion against all types of faulty engineering, but stops along the way to celebrate the mind-blowing solutions experts have come up with. The series was filmed on-location in 18 countries, including Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, England, Germany, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Scotland, Spain, Turkey and the United States.
INCREDIBLE ENGINEERING BLUNDERS: FIXED is produced by BriteSpark Films for Discovery Networks International. The series is commissioned by Elizabeth McIntyre and executive produced by Tom Gorham for Discovery Networks International, and executive produced by Nick Godwin and series produced by Matthew Gillbe for BriteSpark Films.
