DIRTY JOBS is an unflinching look at the unsung American Worker, and the unusual but vital vocations that must be done. There is much to be learned from watching DIRTY WORK as each week host Mike Rowe introduces the viewer to an elite assortment of men and women who make their living doing the most unthinkable jobs. LITHO PRESS Mike Rowe rolls up his sleeves and gets dirty operating an antique printing press that makes fine art lithographs. Mike inks up the rollers and gets the giant gears turning in an attempt to make a limited edition Dirty Jobs poster. After a full days work, Mike has a new appreciation for the men and women who get dirty in the printing business. TERRACOTTA Mike Rowe joins forces with the largest terracotta manufacturer in the United States and he learns quickly that turning red clay into architectural ornaments is a very dirty job. Mike finds himself up to his elbows in plaster as he makes molds that will later be filled with red clay to make highly decorative building facades. Decorative terracotta tiles have adorned many of America’s architectural masterpieces since the late 1800’s. GARBAGE PIT TECHNICIAN Mike Rowe teams up with a group of garbage collectors that are converting trash into electricity. It’s a smelly proposition that has Mike up to his knees in other people’s garbage but in the end he learns that some dirty jobs are helping to preserve the environment.
