Discovery Channel’s “Dude, You’re Screwed”

Denver-based Company Finds All It Needs Right Here in Connecticut

Stamford, CT: July 23, 2014

Those "Dudes" parachuted into Connecticut this past week. You know- Jake, Terry, John and Matt- those military and special forces characters who travel the world seeking adventure- and creating mayhem  weekly on Discovery Channel's “Dude, You're Screwed”.

And this time, they were enabled by one of Connecticut’s own- EVTV of Stamford.

EVTV, a thirty year veteran of TV and film, made its first foray into the world of reality TV for Discovery Channel’s “Dude You’re Screwed” (, proving the television industry is alive and well here in Connecticut for world-class production; the company packed two weeks of production and location logistics in and around upstate Connecticut for the series second season.

Working with High Noon Productions out of Denver, EVTV pinch-hit for the series’ producers and secured airplanes, skydiving, fire vehicles, farms, production support and military training facilities throughout Connecticut for the four day shoot. The episodes were shot in Southington at the military training facilities at King 33, Ellington Airfield and Cooke Farms in Wallingford. They are scheduled to run on Discovery in November.

“Connecticut had so much to offer this series”, states Michael Macari of EVTV, who served as Unit Production Manager for the twenty-man crew and cast. “They’ve shoot around the world, and found exactly what they needed for these episodes right here”.

“Not only was Mike the perfect choice as our UPM/Fixer”,, states Steve Lukanic, Senior Producer for High Noon, “ but we couldn't have done it without him and his team!”

Since 1984, EVTV has produced a wide-variety of TV, cable and communications programming ( . To discuss the project in greater detail, please call at 203-359-8777, or email
