The series has a great combination of heart-stopping action and loads of detail. We take viewers on the front lines of jobs that keep the world turning, and the serious problems they encounter on a daily basis. These are big-time fixes that have real-world consequences. We brainstormed and searched for fixes on a monster scale that are not only unique and visually interesting but also take viewers into environments in a way that has not been seen before on television.
Our host, Sean Riley, also makes this series unique. Unlike many hosts, Sean is not just there introducing us to the characters and explaining what is happening. He IS part of the fix. He is actively involved with the “fix crew,” genuinely excited by the subject matter, and he sometimes offers up his own expertise in building and rigging. He really gets in there to help and to learn, and that helps viewers feel like they are inside these unique experiences as well.
Despite the challenges, we are able to secure rare, and at times exclusive, access to places the audience has probably never seen before and will probably never get to, from the inside of a nuclear turbine to riding in a helicopter and working on live electrical wires.
We are certainly pleased and fortunate to have the cooperation of such important global organisations as Boeing, Siemens, Heerema and the others. Also, you are only as good as your weakest link, right? And as far these companies and their engineers and maintenance repair teams go, they are the best in the business.
