“I found a guitar, I’m gonna be a roadie!” Have truer words never been spoken? Banger TV are geared up to debut its new, eight-episode comedic web series, Heavy Metal Hitchhiker, produced by Banger Films digital division, Banger TV.

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 favorite band, RÄGR.  Mitch realizes that he must follow in his father’s roadie footsteps and return the six-stringed axe to the band in time for their headlining concert. Lacking money and wheels, Mitch has to hitchhike. He’s got 10 hours to travel 247 kilometers to fulfill his destiny.

Heavy Metal Hitchhiker is directed and co-written by Marc Ricciardelli (Shredders of Metal, Protest The Hero: Of Our Own Volition) and stars comedian Garrett Jamieson, featuring music from 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.

Looking for a show that’ll make you laugh and melt your head at the same time? Look no further with Heavy Metal Hitchhiker.
