DESCRIPTION: (from AMC's press release, April 2013) "Owner's Manual" will test one of the most common divides among man - those who read the owner's manual and those who do not. Representing each side of this divide, Ed Sanders ("Extreme Makeover: Home Edition") and Marcus Hunt (HGTV's "Hammer Heads") are put to the test in a weekly challenge where they attempt to operate today's most advanced, dangerous and powerful machinery and technology - from a stunt plane to an off-road racing car to a locomotive, and more. With opposing points of view and conflicting methods of practice -- one man works strictly from the rule book, while the other uses only his instincts -- the real test will be how this "everyman" duo can collaborate to accomplish their challenge.
