SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- A local limousine manufacturer will soon be in the national spotlight thanks to The Discovery Channel's "How It's Made" show.
"It's been about three years that we've been contacting The Discovery Channel," said Limoland.com Retail Sales Manager Gary Spaniak.
Those three years are now paying off.
"It was definitely a lot of pressure, but I think we are definitely up to the task," said Spaniak.
"I watch that show every night with my girls," said Limoland.com electrician Jonathan Blakely.
The Discovery Channel's "How It's Made" show, which finds out how everyday objects that people use become the things they are, landed in the Ozarks this week at Limoland.com
"It's been really interesting and cool too to have them here to do this. It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so we all enjoy it," said Blakely.
The crew traveled from Quebec, Canada, to document the process of making a limousine.
Not only will the limos appear on TV's across the nation but across the world. "How It's Made" is aired in more than 120 countries and translated into more than 20 languages.
"Normally we cut a car in half and that's it. It starts to be built," said Spaniak.
Normal went out the window once the crew arrived. Limoland employees suddenly found themselves understanding the "magic of television."
"It was almost seven times of cutting [the car] in half, welding the car back together, and cutting it apart again," Spaniak said.
Repetition was the name of the game.
"We've done a lot of things multiple times, but obviously it's well worth it," he said.
The crew wanted whatever it took to get just the right shot.
"That's been really hectic," Blakely laughed, "really hectic doing that."
It was hectic but exciting, especially for employees like Jonathan Blakely, who have little television watchers at home.
"They are probably going to love it. They are going to be like, 'Look! There's Daddy!' They are going to be really excited. I can't wait to watch it on air myself and see what it's like," he said.
The Discovery Channel couldn't tell Limoland exactly when the episode will air but did say it could be six to nine months.
