December 13, 2010

(Culver City, Ca.) The 3D joint venture of Sony Corporation, Discovery Communications and IMAX Corporation has added six new titles to its planned network programming slate, including original series and acquisitions, it was announced today by Tom Cosgrove, President and CEO of the joint venture. The programs - produced in native 3D - will join the series, programs and theatricals previously announced by the first 24/7, fully programmed 3D television network in the U.S.

"We continue to move forward aggressively to both create and acquire the most immersive and entertaining 3D programming for television audiences available anywhere," said Cosgrove. "The broad range of series and programs announced today further underscores our ongoing commitment to providing consumers with the highest quality 3D content across a wide variety of genres."

The series and programs announced today (in alphabetical order):

Original Series

Bullproof*

Cowboys live their lives 8 seconds at a time, but the men sent in to save them from harm face up to 90 2,000-pound angry bulls a night. This series brings to life the most extreme and dangerous man-versus-beast competition in existence - the daredevil world of professional bull riding - focusing on the true heroes of the sport. Produced by Wild Eyes Productions and Digital Revolution Studios.

High Octane*

Utilizing the latest evolution in 3D camera equipment and cutting-edge production techniques, this series brings viewers along for the ride in the high-octane worlds of motocross, jet skiing, rock-climbing, bungee jumping and other extreme action sports in a way only native 3D can. Produced by Electric Sky Productions.

Making the Brand*

From sophisticated machinery designed to produce goods with mind-numbing efficiency and speed, to the artistry and craftsmanship of human creativity, the diverse and fascinating world of how products are produced on a mass scale is brought to life in this hour-long, native 3D series. Produced by Electric Sky Productions.

Exclusive U.S. Premieres

Join Brad and Barry Klinge, founders of investigative group Everyday Paranormal, as they travel the U.S. using some of the world's most sophisticated equipment to gather powerful supernatural research. This native 3D one-hour special brings an entirely new dimension to the long-running hit series seen regularly on the Discovery Channel. Produced by Paper Route Productions and Go Go Luckey Entertainment.

Open Season (Sony Pictures)

The first feature-length animated film from Sony Pictures Animation features Boog (Martin Lawrence), a happily domesticated grizzly bear, who has his perfect world turned upside down after he meets Elliot (Ashton Kutcher), a scrawny, fast-talking wild mule deer.
