Netflix Announces New “MythBusters” Series

The Producers of the Emmy-nominated, “MythBusters” are teaming up with Netflix to air a new spin-off series titled, “White Rabbit Project.”

“MythBusters” debuted in January 2003 on the Discovery Channel, and aired its last episode on March 5th of this year. With its long run, the show has become synonymous with “don’t try this at home” scientific experiments and myth-busting memes within the pop culture and scientific worlds.

According to Deadline, the new series “White Rabbit Project” will premiere on Netflix on December 9, 2016. The show is set to star “MythBusters” favorites, Kari Byron, Tory Belleci, and Grant Imahara – the original show’s “build team.”

While the main MythBusters, Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, covered the central myth of each episode, the “build team” would tackle a usually related one on the side. If the myth to bust involved destroying cars, then most likely, Byron, Belleci, and Imahara would be working with warped vehicles as well. The side team’s antics and comradery will now be the focus of the new unscripted reality series.

“White Rabbit Project” gets its name from the team falling down the metaphorical rabbit hole – ready to analyze and explore what the scientific wonderland has to offer. The hosts will be investigating and experimenting with history’s foremost wonders and events. Viewers can expect the same nonsensical humor and outrageous themes.

Deadline reports that all subject matters are a go for the team: “Under their microscope are topics as diverse as jailbreaks, superpower technology, heists and crazy world war two weapons.”

Fans of the original “MythBusters” can be ready for the same zany mayhem and unconventional shenanigans with 3/5 of their beloved science and technology experimental team.

Catch “White Rabbit Project” on Netflix, premiering December 9, 2016.
