Are you ready for the return of Everyday Edisons? The fabulous Everyday Edisons cast and crew have been hard at work this week filming the series at the Edison Nation headquarters in Charlotte! The rebooted series will begin streaming on National Inventor’s Day, February 11, 2020, which is also Thomas Edison’s birthday.
The Emmy and Telly Award–Winning inspirational reality TV series originally aired in 2006 for four seasons on PBS. The show chronicled the journeys of first-time inventors as they brought their products to market, and viewers rooted for their favorite inventor throughout the episodes, learning the identity of the winner at the season’s end.
Attracting a nationwide viewership of 125,000, the popular series launched 30 products into major retailers, including Bed, Bath & Beyond, Babies”R”Us, Toys“R”Us, CVS, Dicks Sporting Goods, PetSmart, Walgreens and Walmart.
In the relaunched series, each episode will feature three inventors competing to have their idea selected by a panel of leading innovators for development by Edison Nation. Panelists will include lead judges Louis Foreman (Eventys Stystems) and Chris Ferguson (Edison Nation), as well as guest panelists Tiffany Norwood (Tribetan) and Richard Levy (Salad Spinners). The Amazon Prime platform will make the new series available to 100 million viewers.
Incorporating segments featuring the triumphs of successful inventors, episodes will rekindle the excitement of the original series while providing a new level of mentorship to contestants and viewers. The new Everyday Edisons will be produced by 23-time Emmy Award winner Michael Cable, co-creator, head writer, and host of the original series.
We at Edison Nation can’t wait to see what remarkable products the new Everyday Edisons will have in store. Mark your calendar for February 11, 2020, to discover more extraordinary ideas from ordinary people!
