UPDATE: Buyers Jarrod Schulz and Brandi Passante brought three items for McCament’s expert evaluation. He identified them as a ’20s/’30s-era dressing table, cosmetics airbrush system, and incomplete embalming machine set used to remove fluids from and inject preservative fluids into bodies. The scene was shot primarily in the Mortuary Science Department’s embalming room — a source of discomfort for Jarrod — and includes other visual elements of the campus.
The Mortuary Science Program — and retired Professor Dave McCament, specifically — will be featured on tonight’s first-run episode of the A&E Network’s “Storage Wars.” The episode, titled “Nowhere to Formaldehyde,” debuts at 10 p.m. (Wednesday, January 30, 2019).
The episode was filmed on campus on June 12, 2018. Specific details about the episode are embargoed until after the show makes its debut. Tune in tonight to be among the first to know why the “Storage Wars” crew made Cypress College part of the show.
