Two familiar faces from a popular Discovery TV show are teaming up again to produce and judge on another Discovery gam. Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, of Mythbusters fame, will be the judges on ‘Unchained Reaction’ a new show from the network premiering in March.
The duo also serve as judges for the six-part series, which pits two teams of varying backgrounds — artists, rocket scientists, animatronic specialists, engineers and even your average Joes — against each other to build an elaborate chain reaction contraption on a massive scale. The teams are provided with identical sets of tools and materials and given five days to complete a series of mechanisms based on a specific theme. Per the network, “refined mechanical movements, pyrotechnics and large-scale destruction are encouraged.” At the end of the the five days, Savage and Hyneman are joined by a new guest judge to review the installations and pick a winner.
I’m really looking forward to this and if the new show is anything like Mythbusters, it should be a hit.
