"Going Deep with David Rees" is a reality series on the Esquire Network. The first season originally aired on the National Geographic Channel (NGC).

Here's a simple question: Can you tie your shoes? Odds are you learned how as a young child, but do you really know how to tie them? Are you using the ideal strength of shoelace, or are yours susceptible to breaking? Is your shoelace knot perfectly symmetrical? Does it capsize like a professional mariner's knot? And have you laced your shoes in a way that maximizes their effectiveness for the activities you're doing? Turns out, untangling the art of proper shoelace tying requires a deeper investigation.

Viewers of this series will discover that when it comes to everyday activities and simple tasks, there's more than meets the eye. David Rees, the man who literally wrote the book on how to sharpen pencils, is taking to the airwaves to teach viewers how to master other often-overlooked skills.

This how-to show teaches you how to do the things you think you already know how to do. In each episode, viewers will journey alongside David as he dons his black apron to deconstruct a familiar process — navigating the whys, hows and what-ifs everyday experiences. Along the way, he'll meet experts who reveal the task's surprising history and de-familiarize it until you realize you actually know nothing about it. David will gather everything he's learned to devise and debut the best technique to accomplish this formerly simple task — until even making ice cubes becomes a high-stakes showcase of beauty and technical precision.

WARNING: At some points you will feel like you are losing your mind.

Discover how to tie a perfectly symmetrical shoelace knot, go inside the head of a housefly (literally) to learn how to best annihilate it, and find out the most ergonomically devastating way to wield a shovel. In his quest for knowledge, David hangs out with a collection of diverse individuals who have dedicated their lives to becoming the best in their (often underappreciated) fields — including circus performers, evolutionary biologists, lock pickers, arm wrestlers and a mysterious man known as "Professor Shoelace."
