"BrainStormers" (TV show) is a reality series on The Weather Channel that follows three Colorado-based backyard geniuses — a father, son and his friend — who are on a quest to build and test inventions that fight bad weather and harness its power for everyday use — and do it on a budget. From their homegrown workshop, these lovable rascals tackle weather issues from across the country, sometimes starting from scratch and sometimes helping other backyard inventors improve their projects. Every build is filled with challenges, from a creating a homemade mosquito trap or solar water heater to fixing a nearby town's wind generator, and the road to success is filled with setbacks, revelations and a lot of fun.
"BrainStormers" is produced by Outpost Entertainment, a joint venture between veteran producer Jodi Flynn (formerly of Screaming Flea) and Leftfield Entertainment ("Pawn Stars
," "American Restoration
"), and by Crybaby Media.
