In each episode, Extreme Makeover Edition‘s Ed Sanders and Hammer Heads‘ Marcus Hunt will face off in a weekly challenge in which they attempt to operate powerful and complex machinery with and without using the manual.
“Every adult in the world falls into one of two categories. You either read the owner’s manual or you don’t,” said Joel Stillerman, AMC’s EVP of original programming, production and digital content, in a statement. “As a non-owner’s manual person, I have a whole shelf in my house dedicated to parts that never found their way into things I have assembled.”
Owner’s Manual is executive produced by Steve Michaels, Jonathan Koch, Alex Piper and Jerry McNutt. Stillerman, Jason Fisher, SVP of production, and Mary Conlon, VP of non-scripted original programming, will oversee development and production.
Meanwhile, beginning on February 14, AMC will air a block of unscripted programming on Thursdays. The night will kick off at 9 p.m. with season two of the Kevin Smith-executive produced series Comic Book Men, followed by reality family drama Freakshow at 9:30 p.m. and the Go Go Luckey Entertainment-produced series Immortalized at 10 p.m.
