[edit] Information

Discovery Channel's homegrown-hit series NERVE CENTER is back for another 24/7 adrenaline rush! The series offers an all-access pass revealing how some of the world's most iconic places keep ticking around the clock. NERVE CENTER begins at the high-pressure moment of peak operations. Meet the key personnel that drive the momentum from behind the scenes, then see over the course of a working day how everything interconnects seamlessly - and sometimes fails - to deliver the goods.

[edit] 100th Grey Cup

The Rogers Center is gearing up for fifty three thousand attendees and 8 million viewers tuning into one of the most exciting sporting events in North America - the 100th Grey Cup on TSN. While all eyes are focused on the football plays and the half-time show, what people don't see is the amazing technology, coordination and talent that work tirelessly behind-the-scenes to prepare for and pull off the live broadcast of this multi-million dollar event. In the high adrenalin world of live event broadcasting, there are no second chances. Deadlines can't be missed and decisions are split second. It takes more than 200 skilled technicians six days to convert 1.6 million cubic meters inside the Rogers Centre into a full HD, live television broadcast studio. Using ten kilometers of camera cable, crews connect 37 cameras and more than 150 microphones to capture the plays and the sound inside the dome.

[edit] Four Seasons Hotel

Soaring 55 stories above Toronto's city skyline, the brand-new Four Seasons Hotel stands as a cutting-edge flagship for the iconic chain when it opened in early October 2012. Competition is stiff in Toronto with the recent launch of the 5-star Ritz-Carlton and the Trump International Hotel - and the Four Seasons' global reputation rides on the flawless opening of this high-profile home base. The pressure is intense and the hotel's 400 staff members feel the heat! Nerve Center had unparalleled behind the scenes access to the one of the most highly anticipated hotel launches in the history of the company.

[edit] Cedar Point Amusement Park

Named "Best Amusement Park in the World" for 13 years straight by Amusement Today - the world's authority on amusement parks - Cedar Point boasts a world-record 73 rides, including 16 rollercoasters! On peak days, 40,000 adrenalin-seeking junkies visit this iconic Ohio park, piling onto coasters, zipping down waterslides and enjoying the stunning waterfront setting. What fun-seekers don't get to see is the massive, coordinated, behind-the-scenes effort by 2000 employees to ensure the gut-wrenching drops and scream-inducing thrills are safe, secure and as exhilarating as ever. Head of Operations Bill Spehn acts as a roving nerve center - weighing in on any problems that arise. From parking lot traffic jams, midday coaster breakdowns and staff shortages - this is the man who must come up with a solution for every problem...and fast. With only a six-month operating season, any daily slowdown in business could equal serious revenue loss.

[edit] Legal Sea Foods

Legal Sea Foods in Boston is a 45 year old seafood empire that takes the freshness and safety of your food to a whole new level! They source, test and prepare 50,000 kilograms of highly perishable seafood every week - exclusively serving the company's 31 high-volume restaurants. Legal Sea Foods' reputation for serving the best, freshest, safest food is always on the line. Seafood is easily susceptible to contamination. And in the restaurant business, one bad meal or one bad mollusk, could ruin even the hardest earned reputations. Nerve Center has complete, behind-the-scenes access to the newest addition to the Legal Empire, Legal Harborside. Located in beautiful downtown Boston, Legal Harborside is a 1,900 square meter restaurant featuring 3 kitchens, and capable of serving 300 people at a time. We follow the Legal team during their busy summer season to discover how one of the biggest seafood restaurants in the US pulls off the task of keeping 2500 diners a night satisfied, while keeping the 50 cooks and 7 chefs sane and the food delicious and fresh.

[edit] Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction

For six days in January the barren desert outside Scottsdale, Arizona becomes the site of one of the world's biggest automobile events of the year - the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction. 300,000 people from around the globe gather under a 8 hectare tented city to watch 3000 bidders vying for 1300 of the world's most exotic and expensive used cars. The stakes --$100 million dollars. With 40 hours of live auction broadcast on SPEED network, it takes a team of 800 people from Barrett-Jackson working day and night behind-the-scenes to pull off this iconic event. Barrett-Jackson gets a percentage of each sale, so selling each car for the best price is the name of the game. President Steve Davis estimates the price ahead of the auction. A world expert on collector cars, he analyzes a database with 40 years of auction sales, identifying all transactions on similar makes and models. He boasts that he can accurately determine within 5% what any car will sell for at the auction. Then it's up to the auctioneers to get that price!

[edit] Monster Jam

Fifty thousand people pack into the Sun Bowl Stadium in El Paso, Texas to catch one of the most supercharged motorsports entertainment event of the year - Monster Jam. A fleet of 16 monster trucks, each weighing 4.5 tons rumble, roar, and race their way through a precision-designed racetrack and tire-shredding obstacle course. While this may seem like pure mayhem, the amount of coordination and attention to detail required to pull off a Monster Jam show is staggering. We follow Track Construction Manager Mike Csizmar and his Dirt Crew as they work against the clock to turn the football field into a Monster Jam track. The stadium's artificial turf is worth one million dollars, so Mike and his team must protect it with 900 large polyurethane sheets. They bring in 260 dump trucks full of dirt along with 30 cars and vans and one school bus to build a track full of high-flying jumps that will give the Monster Jam fans a thrilling show.
