"Salvage City" (TV show) is a reality docu-series on Discovery Channel.

St. Louis has been on the world stage for centuries. But after industry left the city, many of the city's once-thriving factory and warehouse districts became Rust Belt boneyards. For Sam Coffey and his salvage crew, this urban wasteland is a goldmine ripe for plunder. Coffee and his crew break into abandoned buildings and rescue historic treasures doomed for a landfill and transform them into timeless pieces coveted by collectors.

Coffey, a St. Louis native, works hard to preserve the heritage of his hometown, even at the risk of arrest or great bodily harm. With his wisecracking junkyard giant Chris Trotter, designer/business partner Mia Brown, and his loyal German Shepard Hektor by his side, anything is possible. After years of carving out a reputation as a master carpenter and earning local fame exploring a network of caves beneath St. Louis where brewers like Anheuser Busch used to store their beer, Coffey turned his passions into a business, The Factory, where his crew transforms items salvaged from abandoned buildings into unique industrial art pieces and furnishings.

"Salvage City" is produced for Discovery Channel by Coolfire Originals in association with No Coast Originals. Executive producers for the series are Jeff Keane, Steve Luebbert and Tim Breitbach from Coolfire, Jon Maurice, Brad Carsten and Charlie Smith from No Coast, and Lasta Drachkovitch. Sean Boyle is executive producer for Discovery Channel.
