ORIGINS OF THE METEORITE MEN
After appearing in numerous one-off meteorite hunting television shows for PBS, Discovery Channel, the History Channel, the Travel Channel and others, long time friends and expedition partners Geoff Notkin, science writer and owner of Aerolite Meteorites, and world famous meteorite hunter Steve Arnold were eager to take their unique blend of adventure, science, and humor to a wider audience.

During the winter of 2007 Steve and Geoff were contacted by Ruth Rivin, executive producer at prominent production company LMNO, in Los Angeles, California to ask if they would be interested in pursuing a television series idea. After a few months of talks, producer Elizabeth Meeker flew to Tucson for a one-day desert shoot with Steve and Geoff in February, 2008. The resulting demo reel landed the Meteorite Men and LMNO owner Eric Schotz an invitation to fly to Washington, D.C. and meet with senior executives at some of the world’s top cable networks. Steve and Geoff turned up in the lobby of the Discovery building in full field gear, and carrying a backpack containing ten thousand dollars’ worth of meteorites. It was quite the show-and-tell.
