PITCHMEN RETURNS TO DISCOVERY AUGUST 19 IN SEARCH OF
THE NEXT BIG PRODUCT IDEAS AND THE PITCHMEN WHO SELL THEM
Season two of PITCHMEN, which returns Thursdays at 9PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel beginning August 19, follows Anthony “Sully” Sullivan as he attempts to pick up the pieces and continue making inventors’ dreams come true after the sudden death of his longtime friend and pitch partner, Billy Mays.
Through 10 all-new episodes, Sully scours the country holding “pitch-a-thons” to give everyday inventors a shot at catching his eye with their simple solutions to common problems. Each episode will feature the good, bad and hilarious ideas that Sully comes across and will showcase the inventions from first pitch to final commercial to see if the risk pays off for the dare-to-dream inventors. From razors to wrenches, the products featured this season are more revolutionary – and, at times, outlandish – than ever before. But will they have what it takes to hit it big?
PITCHMEN, which first premiered in April 2009, is produced for Discovery Channel by Original Productions. Thom Beers, Philip D. Segal, Chris Wilson and Anthony Sullivan are executive producers for Original Productions and Chris Rantamaki is executive producer for Discovery Channel.
