"Alaskan Steel Men" (TV show) is a reality docu-series on Discovery Channel that takes viewers to the harsh environment of Kodiak, Alaska, alongside the extreme metal welders who have some of the most dangerous jobs around. Dennis Butts and his wife Theresa Butts certainly don't have typical day jobs. Together, they own Quality Marine of Alaska and have assembled some of the best welders and pipe fitters in the business.

"You name it, we fix it," Butts said. "No matter how tough you are, Mother Nature is tougher. We're talking boats sinking to the bottom of the ocean. You make a mistake, people die."

Butts' weapon against Mother Nature is fire and steel. From welding underwater in icy cold seas to stop massive boats and oil barges from sinking, to sealing a crack on a vessel that struck some ice, there is no job too big or risky. The team is fearless and never hesitates to put their lives on the line to get the job done.

The series will give an up-close look at a world most people will likely never experience — and the crew who somehow find themselves caught up in some major white-knuckle crisis. But how long can this group of men keep going before something goes terribly wrong?

"Alaskan Steel Men" is produced for Discovery Channel by Lizard Trading Company. John Moffet serves as executive producer for Discovery. Liz Bronstein and Harry Lowell served as executive producer for Lizard Trading Company.
