"Hurricane Hunters" (TV show) is a character-driven documentary series on The Weather Channel that reveals the high-stakes world of pilots who fly planes into hurricanes to gather meteorological data from the eye of the storm. The show tracks their lives and dangerous missions during the height of hurricane season.

"Hurricane Hunters" follows the Air Force's 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron based in Biloxi, Mississippi, whose mission is to fly planes into hurricanes to better understand them and gather key meteorological data that can only be captured by flying into the eye of the storm. The information they gather helps weather services predict storm paths and warn affected cities. This is meteorology in the extreme: they risk their own lives, and other people's lives depend on them. Remarkably, many of these highly trained men and women take on hurricane hunting as a second job – and their day jobs and hobbies are as varied as a FedEx pilot, an attorney and an Elvis impersonator, making for a unique and eclectic group.

"Hurricane Hunters" is produced by High Noon Entertainment. Christian D'Andrea, Aleco Bravo, Rich Battista are the producers.
