MYTHBUSTERS: THE SEARCH
Tuesdays from 5 June at 8.30pm AEST/NZ
MythBusters are back! No, not Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, but a new generation that is eager to follow in the footsteps of this legendary pair and separate fact from fiction in spectacular style. In 2016, after 2,950 experiments, 910 explosions and 133 kilometres of duct tape, Jamie and Adam hung up their lab coats and bowed out with a boom. But with a myriad of myths still to be tested, the search is on to find a new team to test tall tales and urban legends.
To find the best of the best, MythBusters: The Search sees ten elite builders and creative technicians battle it out for their chance to continue the legacy. This next generation of fearless contenders have killer build skills, science smarts, and nerves of steel, and each week they will be judged on their myth-busting abilities.
Hosted by Kyle Hill (a MythBusters superfan) MythBusters: The Search marks the start of a new era. Using never-before-seen spectacular stunts, some myth-busting challenges will focus on build skills, while others require science know-how; some will test ingenuity, while others will test resolve, all with the goal of busting new myths.
Loaded with spectacles and explosions, the contestants will be tested to their limits. Who will be crowned the MythBusters successors?
