Plot Synopsis

In each one-hour episode of THE EXPLOSION SHOW, Tory Belleci and "Streetbike" Tommy Passemante give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the many ways explosions exist in everyday life. From suiting up with the heroic Riverside, CA Sheriff Bomb Squad, who are tasked with disarming and detonating bombs that threaten public safety, to orchestrating their very own fireworks show, or plunging into the movie magic behind some of the most iconic Hollywood explosions, Tory and Tommy leave no fuse unlit. Together they'll travel across the country to see firsthand the science of massive blast waves at New Mexico Tech, learn the secret to surviving an explosion (sort of), discover how construction materials are formed by blowing up mountains, find out how the FBI uses forensics to investigate bomb cases - and so much more. There will be science, hijinks and close-calls, but most importantly, there will be lots and lots of explosions.

There are few who appreciate the sweet thrill of blowing stuff up as much as Tory and Tommy. Tory was one of the technical wizards behind some of the most memorable explosions on MYTHBUSTERS. Streetbike Tommy is best known for his antics with Nitro Circus, the thrill seekers known for performing insanely dangerous stunts. Together, they're on a mission to take audiences on an unpredictable ride, hanging with the experts, daredevils and professionals who are in the business of making things explode.

In the series opener, "When Mountains Explode," Tory and Streetbike Tommy meet experts using cutting-edge explosives to turn entire mountains into gravel-sized bits essential for construction, and their investigation reveals the high-powered, hi-tech process behind this dangerous work.
On Wednesday, February 5, 2020 at 10pm ET/PT, Science Channel premiered "Black Powder Blast," the season finale of THE EXPLOSION SHOW. Tory and Streetbike Tommy meet experts of the battlefield who recreate black powder blasts from the Civil War, and using cutting-edge technology, they experiment with this simple yet deadly explosive.
