BBC Two is to take viewers behind the scenes of their US produced sci-fi series Heroes with a new companion show called Heroes Unmasked.
Promising “insightful interviews and exclusive backstage access” the episode one introduces viewers to the characters and creators who are going to take them on a ride throughout the summer of 2007.
From crashing vans to clashing swords, prosthetic models to painful stunts, no hero is left unturned, as Unmasked shows that it takes heroes on both sides of the cameras to bring this series to life.
To launch Heroes Unmasked, Hayden Panettiere (cheerleader Claire Bennet in the series) talks through how she came to walk through fire and reveals exactly how Claire’s hand became so mangled, in all its gory detail. This first episode perfectly illustrates the skill, scale and expertise that goes into making Heroes, and how the Heroes are set for a bumpy ride.
