HIGHWAY THRU HELL Debuts Sept. 4 on Discovery Channel

Toronto, ON (August, 2012) – Steep hills, lethal drop-offs, killer rockslides and wicked weather. These are a trucker’s worst nightmares. But with urgent delivery deadlines and millions of dollars in cargo on the line, the Coquihalla Highway – 100 treacherous kilometres cutting through the heart of British Columbia’s Cascade Mountains – is the only way to get the job done. And when something goes wrong, this highway needs heroes. Premiereing Tuesday, September 4 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Discovery Channel, HIGHWAY THRU HELL follows the men of Jamie Davis Heavy Rescue as they fight to keep open some of the most economically important, most travelled – and most inhospitable – trucking routes in North America. An original eight-part Canadian series, HIGHWAY THRU HELL is produced by Vancouver’s Great Pacific TV.
