Get Blown Away by the Tornado Hunters
The unimaginable power of Mother Nature comes to life on Corus Entertainment’s CMT Canada web series, Tornado Hunters. Led by Canada’s very own extreme weather chasers, The Tornado Hunters. The team tackles the biggest tornadoes in North America and captures one-of-a-kind footage.
Greg Johnson, Chris Chittick, and Ricky Forbes are the Tornado Hunters. Outfitted with their Robust Ford truck called ‘Flash’ and the latest high tech equipment, they aren’t afraid to go where many would fear and film the wildest tornadoes. The Tornado Hunter’s adventures take them from Regina to Mexico, as they risk life, limb and a lot of windshields to chase their passion for the world’s worst weather.
The Tornado Hunters are recognized as first responders within the news media and have garnered mainstream popularity throughout the world for their real-time weather expertise and stunning footage of the world’s most severe storms. Environment Canada, broadcast meteorologists and audiences globally monitor their newsfeeds and tune into their live web streams regularly to witness the phenomena they are able to capture.
Viewers will have a first-hand look at the trials and tribulations that come with living a life of storm hunting. From the weight of worry in their personal relationships to facing 300 mile-per-hour winds, the team provides access to some of their most exclusive footage.
Produced by Saloon Media and developed with the participation of the Bell Fund, the five webisodes will be the launching pad for the official broadcast pilot set to air on CMT at a later date. Beginning August 18, www.CMT.ca will host an interactive campaign, prompting fans to provide their input and join the #CMTTornadoHunters conversation with @CMTCanada.
