The six-episode series includes “arborists climbing 200 feet high in the Redwood Forest, acrobatic bush pilots in the savanna of South Africa, extreme heavy haul truckers through America’s heartland, iron erectors hundreds of feet up in the air, construction divers underwater in the depths of the Pacific, volcanologists climbing to the top of the explosive Stromboli, and wind turbine technicians in some of the windiest conditions on Earth.”

The show follows the rookies—a.k.a. “greenhorns”—as they learn the job as a grunt, and learn life-or-death on-the-job training.

Sharp Entertainment produces the show for Discovery; Matt Sharp, Dan Adler, Johnny Petillo, Joseph Schneier and Mitchell Rosenbaum are executive producers.
