Savage Builds

Putting his unending curiosity and nearly unparalleled inventiveness to the test, Mythbusters star Adam Savage is taking on bigger and badder builds.

From a 3-D printed titanium suit of armor inspired by Marvel Studios' Iron Man films that actually flies to experimenting with the highly volatile liquid nitroglycerin, Savage Builds will propel Adam into explosive and unpredictable worlds with high stakes payoffs.

Each episode focuses on one project as Adam collaborates with notable experts in their fields, friends, colleagues, and some of his favourite people on the planet.

Among those Adam enlists to help sow controlled mayhem are filmmaker Peter Jackson, longtime MythBusters collaborator Tory Belleci and actor Gary Oldman.

Nothing is guaranteed when venturing into the unknown, but whether a build is a success or failure, the results intend to thrill.

In the series premiere, "Iron Man": Adam calls on Richard Browning, the inventor and chief test pilot of the Gravity Jet Suit, which is powered by five 1,000 horsepower mini jet engines, to help get Adam's titanium Marvel Studios' Iron Man-inspired suit to fly.
