Dream Machines features Parker Brothers' Concepts, custom vehicle builders, bringing imaginative vehicles to life
Cleveland - Their motto is "Dream big. Build bigger," and the Parker Brothers deliver on that promise in a big way on Dream Machines, Syfy's new reality show premiering Tuesday, April 10 at 10 PM ET/PT.
Dream Machines follows Florida-based brothers Marc and Shanon Parker 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.
The show's production company, Triage Entertainment, chose Lincoln Electric as its exclusive provider of welding equipment and personal protection gear, including VIKING(TM) helmets and jackets, gloves, caps and safety glasses from the Lincoln Electric Red Line(TM) Welding Apparel line.
Dream Machines, which has been picked up for six episodes, 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.
