BEING IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME STORM CHASERS ROARS BACK FOR SECOND SEASON ON DISCOVERY CHANNEL

-- All new season premieres Sunday, October 19, 2008, at 10 PM (ET/PT) --

(Silver Spring, Md.) �- Discovery Channel returns to the heart of "Tornado Alley" for a firsthand look at one of nature's most destructive forces in an all new season of STORM CHASERS, premiering Sunday, October 19, 2008, at 10 PM (ET/PT). Veteran research meteorologist Dr. Joshua Wurman and filmmaker Sean Casey go head to head, toe to toe and fender to fender with newbie chaser Reed Timmer racing to capture rare footage and valuable scientific data.

Last season, Casey's tank-like TIV or Tornado Intercept Vehicle, raised eyebrows roaring down the nation's highways and byways looking for the shot of all time � filming from inside a tornado. Now, his new and improved creation, the TIV-2, raises the stakes, providing the astonishing footage and the terrifying excitement of storm chasing.

"Mixing science, competition, fear and a good old fashioned American road trip STORM CHASERS packs a torrent of excitement, knowledge and entertainment," said John Ford, president and general manager, Discovery Channel.

Casey and Wurman make an unlikely team. Filming from the turret of his self-designed and self-built TIV-2, Casey risks his life to get the most elusive tornado footage ever shot. As the leader of the team, Wurman guides the TIV from his mobile command post, The Doppler on Wheels (The DOW). Wurman makes split-second life-or-death decisions based on information from Doppler Radar; as the safety of the entire team rests on his shoulders.

Hot on their trail, and often one step ahead, is storm chasing wunderkind Timmer, a PhD candidate in Meteorology at the University of Oklahoma and, ironically, a former student of Wurman. Timmer and his rag tag team of buddies Joel (driver) and Chris (hailstone collector), track storms in their unique way. Freed from complicated on-board computer systems and intricate vehicle design, the threesome set a course for surprise and adventure.

STORM CHASERS is produced for Discovery Channel by Original Media. Charlie Corwin, Lisa Bloch and Clara Markowicz are executive producers for Original Media. Bill Howard is the executive producer for Discovery Channel.
