SYFY CRUISES INTO TUESDAYS WITH HIGH-OCTANE PROGRAMMING AS “DREAM MACHINES” PREMIERES APRIL 10 AT 10PM WITH SPECIAL GUEST STAR 50 CENT
NEW YORK – March 29, 2012 – Syfy will shift into high gear premiering its latest original reality series Dream Machines on Tuesday, April 10 at 10PM (ET/PT), featuring rapper, actor and entrepreneur 50 Cent.
Dream Machines follows Florida-based brothers Marc and Shanon Parker, owners of Parker Brothers’ Concepts, and their crackerjack crew as they take the most imaginative vehicles ever seen in movies, comic books, and TV shows, and engineer them into on-the-road realities. There’s no design challenge too fantastical – or even impossible – for the brothers to take on, and each week they’ll stop at nothing to create these one-of-a-kind “dream machines” for their vast array of celebrity and collector clients.
In the premiere “50 Cent’s Jet Car,” the first of a two part episode, the Parker Brothers have their hands full when special guest star 50 Cent (a.k.a. Curtis Jackson) requests a one-of-a-kind formula one race car inspired by a futuristic space ship. In order to find inspiration for the design, Shanon must get over his fear of flying and challenge Marc to a mid-air dogfight in jet fighters. Back at the shop, design and fabrication collide when Shanon’s creativity conflicts with Marc’s practical ability to build the plans. Just as the car is coming together, a major design change combined with a harrowing new deadline could make the Parker Brothers’ build crash and burn.
Dream Machines is produced by Triage Entertainment with Steve Kroopnick (Iron Chef America) serving as executive producer. Steve Nigg (American Chopper, UFO Hunters) is co-executive producer.
