BangerTV will introduce the world to their new show Heavy Metal Hitchhiker on April 20. The show is an eight-part comedy series premiering on the BangerTV YouTube channel, is directed and co-written by Marc Ricciardelli (Shredders of Metal, Protest The Hero: Of Our Own Volition), and stars comedian Garrett Jamieson.
Heavy Metal Hitchhiker features a soundtrack from bands like Power Trip, Carcass, Municipal Waste, Earthless and Possessed, and a slew of Canadian artists such as Exciter, KEN Mode, Protest the Hero, Cancer Bats, Mount Cyanide, Sarin and Smoulder.
A synopsis of the show is as follows.
"This action-packed comedy series follows a day in the life of Mitch, a heavy metal-loving gas station attendant, who stumbles upon an abandoned guitar that belongs to his favourite band, RÄGR. In a moment of happenstance, Mitch realizes that he must follow in his father's roadie-shaped footsteps and return the six-stringed axe to the band in time for their headlining concert. Without money or wheels, Mitch's only option is to hitchhike. He's got 10 hours to travel 247 kilometers to fulfill his destiny."
All the episodes will be available on Banger’s YouTube channel.
