SEVERAL DISCOVERY CHANNEL FAN FAVORITE SERIES TO RETURN FOR SECOND SEASON

-- Recent Series Launches Help Boost Network Ratings Six Nights of the Week --

(Silver Spring, Md.) � Several new recently launched Discovery Channel series have become steady fan favorites and have been given the green light for a second season. AMERICAN LOGGERS, DESTROYED IN SECONDS, HOW STUFF WORKS, TIME WARP and TREASURE QUEST all contributed to delivery gains in prime for Persons and Men 25-54 on six out of seven nights of the week.

AMERICAN LOGGERS � A desolate hundred mile stretch of treacherous road cuts through the heart of Maine's backcountry. For three generations the Pelletier family has braved its wilds, continuing to live a proud tradition of which today they are among the last: seven brothers, one road, no rules. Thickly blanketed by snow and ice, with no imposed speed limit, and over two-thirds unpaved, the road has long been the preferred route for those truckers and woodsmen whose brutal livelihood supplies the paper mills. AMERICAN LOGGERS is produced by Half Yard Productions.

DESTROYED IN SECONDS � Produced by Pilgrim Films & Television and hosted by Ron Pitts � an eight-year veteran of the NFL and current FOX Sports broadcaster � this series introduces incredible stories of courage and fortitude as people are confronted with split-second life and death decisions on land, sea and air.

HOW STUFF WORKS � Produced by Jupiter Productions, this show explores the stuff that makes the world go 'round. From extracting rubber, iron and salt from the earth to deriving a crayon from a soybean, HOW STUFF WORKS takes you on the incredible journey of goods from the ground to your table, car, closet, medicine cabinet and places you may have never imagined.

TIME WARP � Until now, there were countless events the world had to offer that our limited senses couldn't fully appreciate. The TIME WARP team, including MIT scientist and professor Jeff Lieberman and digital-imaging expert Matt Kearney, uses new technologies and high-speed photography to bring truly never-before-seen wonders into a form that your body can actually process. This series is produced by Creative Differences.

TREASURE QUEST � In TREASURE QUEST, produced by JWM Productions, viewers are transported to secret locations, often in international waters, as Odyssey Marine Exploration hunts for the ocean's greatest lost treasures. It's a rich blend of the excitement of the hunt and discovery, with the underwater technologies that put viewers in the front seat of the exploration and the history and mystery of some of the most legendary shipwrecks of all time. Odyssey Marine Exploration's team of scientists, engineers, historians, and technicians all have one goal in mind -- to find and recover lost treasures scattered among thousands of centuries-old shipwrecks -- and become rich in the process.
