(Toronto, Canada) This past August, CMT launched its first ever web series, Tornado Hunters. In the series, thrill seekers Greg Johnson, Chris Chittick and Ricky Forbes captivated viewers with a first-hand look at the risk and intensity that comes with living a life of storm hunting. On Sunday, October 26 at 10 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. PT, Canada’s extreme weather chasers return, tackling the most powerful tornadoes in North America for the broadcast debut on CMT.
Produced by Saloon Media and developed in association with CMT and with the participation of the Bell Fund, the pilot will carry the same nail-biting and comical elements that struck a chord with viewers who provided feedback from the webisodes using @CMTCanada and #CMTTornadoHunters. On October 26, audiences will witness Greg, Chris and Ricky zigzag their way across “Tornado Alley” while dealing with their own personal and professional roadblocks.
The Tornado Hunters main purpose is to capture extreme weather imagery and chase that with every storm. In their pursuits, they have become recognized as real-time weather experts within the news media and have garnered mainstream popularity for their stunning footage of the world’s most severe storms.
