Thunderbird Entertainment’s Great Pacific Media Drives U.S. Series Order with All-New Docuseries Rocky Mountain Wreckers

Vancouver, Canada, January 23, 2024 — Great Pacific Media (GPM), a Thunderbird Entertainment Group (TSXV:TBRD, OTC – THBRF) (“Thunderbird” or the “Company”) company, is thrilled to unveil its latest original adventure docuseries, Rocky Mountain Wreckers. The Series is set on the deadliest highways in America — the I-80/I-15 interstate ring — and will follow the harrowing adventures of four family-owned heavy wrecking businesses across the three states: Mountain Recovery (Vale, CO), Stauffer’s Towing & Recovery (West Haven, UT), Reliable Towing (Longmont, CO) and Big Al’s Towing (Cheyenne, WY).

The Series is commissioned by The Weather Channel television network in the U.S. Bell Media is the Canadian production partner and has Canadian rights to the show for Discovery Canada

Rocky Mountain Wreckers captures the real peril and drama inherent in some of the most dangerous jobs in the world, set amongst some of America’s most breathtaking landscapes,” said David Way, President of GPM. “Not only do the companies we follow do some of the most challenging and unbelievable recoveries, but the series’ documentary subjects are also immensely entertaining and will make for great television.”

"The Weather Channel is committed to sharing stories about how weather can have major, life-changing impacts on our lives,” said Nora Zimmett, President, News and Original Series, Weather Group – parent company of The Weather Channel television network. “Rocky Mountain Wreckers follows the lives of five wrecking crews who brave extreme weather conditions just doing their daily jobs. One wrong turn can mean a business catastrophe – or even prove fatal. This series will be a great addition to our primetime line-up as it combines high-stakes excitement, adventure and weather stories that our viewers expect to see on The Weather Channel.”

Way, Todd Serotiuk, Millan Curry-Sharples and Michael Francis serve as Executive Producers for GPM.

In addition to providing an in-depth look at the teams of professionals who risk their lives daily to keep these Interstate highways open, clearing rollovers and collisions, Rocky Mountain Wreckers will also show viewers how they too can travel safely under difficult weather and climate conditions.

Rocky Mountain Wreckers is currently in production for delivery in fall 2024.
