Plot Synopsis

Featuring a cast of scientists and people who just love science, HOW TO BUILD...EVERYTHING breaks down the most complicated tech and machines into a few simple steps. Augmented with CGI, the commentators take viewers through each build, while a retro-style test lab demonstrates scientific concepts. Structured in the spirit of a home installation guide, each half-hour episode breaks down the step-by-step process behind some of the world's most complex apparatuses in a way that armchair engineers and curious minds can follow. From an Apache helicopter to a hovercraft, a cruise ship or a satellite, each episode features three machines as part of a tongue-in-cheek instruction manual. The first season will walk audiences through how to build a state-of-the-art laser-guided cow milking machine, a 20-story cruise ship, a tandem vibratory roller (aka steam roller; aka a cartoon bunny-flattening machine), and a ton of other engineering marvels. The series features these personalities: comedian and former airplane mechanic Alonzo Bodden, science communicator and bug expert Alie Ward, real life doctor and JANE THE VIRGIN's Keller Wortham, Nerdist science editor Kyle Hill, tech expert and futurist Veronica Belmont, mad inventor Eric Gradman, astronaut Leland Melvin, actress Alison Haislip, racecar driver Jessi Combs, and so many more.
