This season, hosts Terry Schappert and Larry Zanoff crank up the action as they put the most jaw-dropping stunts from your favorite superhero & western blockbusters to the test. With an arsenal of new experiments and a sprinkle of movie magic, they are ready to show behind-the-scenes of how it was done on cult-classics such as “RED,” “Reindeer Games,” “Home Alone, “Die Hard” and comic book series “Batman” and “Captain America.” So, grab your capes and join us for a season filled with pyrotechnic thrills.
What is scientific fact – and what is Hollywood fantasy? Terry Schappert utilizes the expertise of Hollywood’s premier prop house and weapons builder with the help of Larry Zanoff, and breaks down some of the most explosive action in Hollywood history.
“My favorite episode from this season is the Batman show where Terry is dressed up as Batman, and the Batmobile is on set. It was quite the experience,” shared Larry Zanoff. “If you like firearms and film, you will enjoy this show – and especially this season. Our writer Dan Ramm always keeps things entertaining, and our director John Carter is a master of high speed photography, so you will definitely see things you don’t see on your average TV show. And its all real! We don’t fake the tests. If it works, it works, if it doesn’t, it doesn’t.”
Larry Zanoff, the esteemed co-host of Hollywood Weapons, brings a wealth of expertise to the show's electrifying exhibition of cinematic stunts. A veteran of the film industry, Zanoff has been an armorer and weapons specialist for some of Hollywood's biggest blockbusters. His encyclopedic knowledge of firearms and dedication to safety transform each episode into an educative spectacle. Beyond his on-screen role, Zanoff is an industry-leading consultant, ensuring that weapon-handling on set adheres to the strictest standards. His precision and attention to detail are not just about authenticity but also about creating a secure environment for cast and crew.
Terry Schappert, a dynamic host of Hollywood Weapons, is not just a charismatic screen presence; he is also a decorated Green Beret. Schappert's extensive military experience, including his role as a Special Forces medic, has given him a unique perspective on the realistic potential of action sequences portrayed in television and film. He is a master of survival skills and hand-to-hand combat and brings an exceptional level of authenticity to the show. When Schappert is not jumping into the fray of staged battles and boldly recreating cinematic feats, he shares his knowledge as a combat expert on various platforms, all while keeping viewers on the edge of their seats with his infectious enthusiasm and expert insights.
