NEW YORK - April 4, 2012 - Syfy will drive viewers to dream big and build bigger as its latest original reality series Dream Machines premieres on Tuesday, April 10 at 10PM (ET/PT) featuring guest star 50 Cent, immediately following WWE SuperSmackDown Live at 8 PM (ET/PT).
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.
WWE Superstar John Cena will also guest star in an upcoming episode of Dream Machines enlisting the Parker Brothers to design the "InCENArator," a vehicle specifically built for the former World Champion. The custom made "InCENArator" will make its television debut on WWE Monday Night Raw on Monday, April 9 at 9PM (ET/PT) on USA Network live from Washington, DC.
WWE SuperSmackDown Live will feature WWE's biggest Superstars and Divas, including Randy Orton(R), Daniel Bryan(TM), Big Show(R), Sheamus(TM), Mark Henry(R), Wade Barrett(TM), Cody Rhodes(TM) and Alicia Fox(TM). The special will encore in SmackDown's regular time slot on Friday, April 13 at 8PM (ET/PT).
In the premiere episode of Dream Machines, entitled "50 Cent's Jet Car" - the first of a two part episode - the Parker Brothers have their hands full when rapper, actor and entrepreneur 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.
