"MYTHBUSTERS JR." EXPLODES ONTO SCIENCE CHANNEL ON WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 2 AT 9 PM

Hosted & Executive Produced By Original Mythbuster Adam Savage

Savage Is Joined By Some Of The Best Builders, Brightest Minds, And The Boldest Young 'Busters' Who Will Tackle The Most Hardcore Myths

(New York) - Adam Savage will return to television as host and executive producer of MythBusters Jr., when the new Science Channel series premieres on Wednesday, January 2 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. For the ten-episode series Savage has teamed-up with six of the nation's leading young 'makers', robotics wizzes, builders, and inventors, all under the age of 16, who show off their amazing ingenuity and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) skills.

Together, they tackle myths just like those seen in the popular Emmy(R) nominated television series MythBusters, ranging from driving, explosions, movies, popular culture and more. From building a fire extinguisher jetpack, to dominos big enough to crush a car, and testing myths from the Oscar(R)-winning big screen pic Gravity and TV's Breaking Bad, it's an action-packed season.

The series premiere episode features a MythBusters classic, the amazingly versatile material, Duct Tape. The junior MythBusters explore whether you can really make a functioning, life-saving parachute out of Duct Tape (see 'Buster' get dropped from extreme heights!) and whether you can make a serviceable car tire from Duct Tape.

"These junior MythBusters are amazing. And while they're kids, the myths we take on are as full-sized and as explosive as ever!" says Savage. "We've created an incredible 10-episode season in which these new MythBusters put their remarkable intelligence and creativity to the test."

The junior MythBusters are: Valerie Castillo (15), a skilled builder and robotics wiz from Lancaster, California; Elijah Horland (12), a self-taught electronics maker, programmer & circuit wiz from Brooklyn, New York; Cannan Huey-You (12) a college sophomore studying astrophysics at Texas Christian University; Jesse Lawless (15) a builder of custom hot rods from Slidell, Louisiana; Rachel Pizzolato (14) a three-time New Orleans Science Fair champion from Metairie, Louisiana; Allie Weber (13) a maker, builder, and inventor from South Dakota.

Also featured in MythBusters Jr. are design and engineering experts Tamara Robertson, whose talents have been seen in MythBusters: The Search and SciJinks, and Jon Marcu, a top special effects technician who has worked on numerous of television and film productions.

MythBusters Jr. is produced for Science Channel by Beyond Productions. John Luscombe and John Tessier are executive producers for Beyond. Wyatt Channell serves as executive producer for Science Channel.
