Toronto, ON (June 29, 2015) — T+E, a Blue Ant Media network, announced today the world premiere of The Weapon Hunter, a Blue Ant Media six-part, original series, produced in association with Cream Productions. Launching July 7, 2015 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, The Weapon Hunter follows the adventures of history buff and restoration expert, Paul Shull, as he embarks on a coast-to-coast quest to get his hands on and help resurrect some of the world’s rarest and most remarkable pieces of military history.
“The Weapon Hunter is sure to give T+E’s adventure-seeking audience a healthy dose of action and history we know they will love,” said Marcia Martin, SVP, Original Content, Blue Ant Media.”
The series follows Shull and his lifelong obsession with military history and technology and he’s on a one-man mission to find and fire the weapons that helped shape the modern world. To achieve his goal, Shull enlists the aid of a loosely-knit network of history obsessed collectors. They’ve spent decades – and small fortunes – amassing military collections that rival those found in any museum. Now, they’re opening their doors to allow Shull the once-in-a-lifetime chance to come face to face with the past.
“The Weapon Hunter is what we call history with the gloves off. We are handling artifacts before they ever make it to the museum – putting them to the test, in the way they were meant to be used, and experiencing history in a very real and visceral way,” said David Brady, CEO of Cream Productions. “We’re thrilled that T+E will air the series premier of this exciting new series this summer.”
The Weapon Hunter is produced by Cream Productions with David Brady and Kate Harrison as Executive Producers. Matthew Booi is the Series Producer. Overseeing the series for Blue Ant Media is Sam Linton, Executive in Charge of Production.
