BIGGEST, BADDEST MACHINES TO GO HEAD-TO-HEAD IN NEW COMPETITION SERIES FOR DISCOVERY CHANNEL

MACHINES OF GLORY premieres Sunday, Dec. 30 beginning at 6 PM E/P

(Los Angeles, Calif.) - It's heavy equipment like you have never seen it before. Hosted by Johnny Littlefield "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" (ABC) and "Dude Room" (Discovery), Discovery Channel's newest competition series MACHINES OF GLORY premieres Sunday, December 30 beginning at 6 PM E/P. The series features three crews of highly-skilled machine operators who battle it out to prove who is king of the construction world.

"There hasn't been a heavy equipment competition show like MACHINES OF GLORY," said Scott Hallock, executive producer of Hallock Healey Entertainment. "This Discovery show is a dream come true for us and anyone who played with their trucks in the sandbox when they were little."

The episodes will air back-to-back on Sunday, Dec.30:

· Episode 1: Backhoe Brawl! at 6 PM E/P: The three crews battle it out to find America's best operators -- bashing piñatas with backhoes, destroying fire hydrants with wheel loaders and pushing their skid steers to the limits in four challenges.

· Episode 2: Dig & Destroy! at 7 PM E/P: It's old guys versus young guys versus Boston boys as the top operators battle it out to see who reigns supreme. The teams will manipulate a maze with a backhoe, run an excavator with surgical precision and use a telehandler to launch projectiles from the world's biggest slingshot.

· Episode 3: Carmageddon! at 8 PM E/P: In the final episode, the crews will face off in several outrageous challenges: playing poker with skid steers, dropping bombs with excavators and crushing cars with dozers to see who is ultimately the best.

Tested in three areas of ability - speed, skill and power - the talented crews will compete in outrageous challenges while operating massive machines ranging from the powerful excavator to the agile skid steer in order to prove that they have what it takes to earn $12,000 in cash winnings and most importantly, the glory.

MACHINES OF GLORY is produced by Hallock Healey Entertainment ("Scare Tactics" (SyFy), "Off their Rockers" (NBC). David Pritikin is Executive Producer for Discovery Channel. To learn more, go to www.discovery.com, on Facebook at Facebook.com/discovery and on Twitter @Discovery.
