New York, NY - November 20, 2014 - Whether it's the famous steps of the Titanic or the legendary lunar landing of Apollo 13, there is no museum exhibit that the expert builders at Creative Arts Unlimited, Inc. can't re-create. In H2's new series MUSEUM MEN, premiering Saturday, November 29 at 10pm ET, viewers will follow these highly skilled craftsmen as they use their expertise to meticulously rebuild history in museums across the nation.
Led by Roger Barganier (co-founder, president and creative director), the team at Creative Arts Unlimited, approach each build with a determination to tell a story. Every exhibit that is produced by the MUSEUM MEN is engaging, informative, and historically accurate. No detail is overlooked, because for Creative Arts authenticity is everything. In addition to building for museums, Creative Arts also re-creates items for private collections. But whoever the recipient may be, every build poses unique challenges, including hard-to-find research, demanding schedules, and obsolete methods of construction. In each episode, viewers will learn the history associated with their exhibits as well as historical build techniques for the objects they re-create.
"Watching them build is like being in a time machine," says Mike Stiller, Vice President of Development & Programming for HISTORY and H2. "They bring the past back to life in unforgettable ways, and that's exactly what we're trying to do on H2."
In the premiere episode, Roger's crew is commissioned to build a King Tut exhibit for a small museum. Using a real 3,000-year-old mummy and recreating actual items from King Tut's tomb, it's a massive job and they only have 30 days to get it done.
MUSEUM MEN is produced by T Group Productions for H2. Brian Meere and Mike Stiller serve as Executive Producers for H2. Jenny Daly, Rob Lobl, and Bill Rademaekers serve as Executive Producers for T Group Productions. Christine Owen serves as Co-Executive Producer for T Group Productions.
