A new show that premiered on Discovery Channel yesterday follows the day-to-day activities of a company that specializes in building bunkers for disaster scenarios.

Dallas-based Deep Earth Bunker owner Scott Bales and his engineers show exactly what goes into making intricate survival bunkers. In each episode of “Doomsday Bunkers” viewers get a start-to-finish guide to building a bunker. Whether power grid failures, nuclear disasters, shooting sprees, tsunamis, earthquakes, terrorist attacks or economic collapse are his customers’ concerns, Bales can build a shelter to suit.

“The series takes a really interesting look into this subculture or movement, from radical folks who really take these precautions to an extreme, to the average person who is using their common sense and taking responsibility for what could happen,” executive producer Anna Geddes told FOX News. “The core focus is really on how Scott built his business – he is an engineering genius with an incredible passion for design, and is always dreaming up ways to improve something.”

During the show, Bales and his team go to great lengths to test their bunkers by trying to blow them up and set them on fire and by shooting and hurling objects at them.

“Some of these bunkers can be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars with radiation infiltration systems, booby traps, gun vaults, decontamination rooms and high-tech software to counter security breaches, while others are much more simple,” said Geddes. “It might seem extreme to pile guns or food in anticipation for disaster, but we’ve become so dependent on infrastructure and most of us aren’t self-sufficient anymore.”
