Discovery Channel Fall Line-Up to Feature All-New Series and Season Premieres of Its Highest-Rated Shows

(Silver Spring, MD) - From hit series and fan favorites to compelling and provocative new series, Discovery Channel's fall schedule is packed with programs that provide behind-the-scenes, in-depth glimpses at the people, places and things that shape and share our world.

Below please find a selection of show descriptions and premiere air dates. Interviews, previews and additional information are available upon request.

NEW SERIES

September:

DINOSAUR REVOLUTION - Sunday, September 4 & 11: This four-part series will reset the standard for immersive, inside-out dinosaur storytelling, providing an insiders' view into the private lives and strange behaviors of dinosaurs. Combining the talents of the world's best dinosaur illustrators and animators with the latest paleontological research, the series' cutting-edge animation and gripping storytelling is front and center, dropping viewers directly into the Prehistoric era. DINOSAUR REVOLUTION will premiere Sunday, September 4 and Sunday, September 11 from 9-11PM ET/PT each night.

October:

CARFELLAS: This series lifts the veil on the used car business through the eyes of reformed convict Mikey D. and his crew, Tommie and Mario of Broadway Motors in Amityville. Mike runs the lot and is obsessed with moving inventory. Mario knows cars inside and out and is a skilled appraiser. Tommie is the muscle of the operation and admits his love for Cadillacs, cannolis and girls. These knock-around guys are experienced at getting money out of people -- but this time, they are out to make an honest living...selling used cars Long Island style.

GUNSMOKE (WT): Step inside GUNSMOKE (WT), one of the oldest gun shops west of the Mississippi, where a third generation family of dynamic gunsmiths crafts blocks of steel into beautiful, but deadly works of art. Leading the operation is Rich Wyatt, a successful business owner, loving husband and devoted father. Though a master firearms trainer and former police officer with more than 22 years of experience in law enforcement, Wyatt's real gift lies in gunsmithing and his shrewd negotiation skills, which have led his Colorado business to immense success.

PENN & TELLER TELL A LIE: Show-stopping iconoclasts Penn & Teller bring their unique vision of the world to Discovery Channel with the new series PENN & TELLER TELL A LIE, slated to launch this October. Each episode will feature up to seven outrageous, hilarious and mind-blowing stories, told through a series of visual stunts, like: Is it true that a head of hair can lift a 5,000 pound car? Or, can you blow out a forest fire with a jet engine? However, in each episode, one of these stories will be a fabrication - an out and out lie! It will be up to Discovery's intrepid home audience to discover the untruths aimed at them through an exclusive, real-time interactive companion experience, synched to the show and available at Discovery.com, on the Discovery Channel App for iPad, and on iPhone.

November:

WEED WARS: See the now-legal business of the country's leading medicinal cannabis dispensary from the inside as WEED WARS premieres this fall on Discovery Channel. Although it is a familiar story: a start- up business, demanding clients and the ever-looming possibility that it could all go belly up... this is not exactly a typical business. WEED WARS follows Oakland's Harborside Health Center, the nation's largest medicinal cannabis dispensary serving over 80,000 patients. The new series pulls back the curtain on a once illegal and still controversial world. In addition to founder and executive director Steve DeAngelo and his staff, WEED WARS follows the journey of the plant itself from seed germination to harvesting. Meet the growers and "patient farmers" whose job it is to provide the "medicine" - the buds - that will eventually be purchased and used by thousands of clients, many of whom feel their lives have been forever changed by the plant. From the earnest and knowledgeable front counter staff to the rigorous lab testing of the cannabis to City Hall protests and the constant police monitoring and security sweeps, WEED WARS offers a look at a world unlike any other.

RETURNING SERIES September:

MAN, WOMAN, WILD - Friday, September 2 at 9PM: The Hawkes, a thrill-seeking married couple, must find their way out of the flooded Amazon jungle, make fresh water from raisins while lost at sea, navigate through a raging forest fire, escape from a glacial crevasse, trap wild boar and make fire with ice.

SWAMP LOGGERS - Friday, September 2 at 10PM: Fourth generation logger Bobby Goodson returns to work the murky, dangerous swamps of North Carolina in search of high value timber for everything from paper products to construction grade lumber.

AMERICAN CHOPPER - Monday, September 5 at 9PM: In new episodes, there is a potential breakthrough in the two-year legal battle between father and son, Senior and Junior... and suddenly hope of reconciliation.

SWAMP BROTHERS - Monday, September 5 at 10PM: The Keszey brothers put themselves on the line to protect even the most unusual of creatures - from pythons and gators, to wildcats and bears.

STORM CHASERS - Wednesday, September 28 at 10PM: Extreme meteorologist Reed Timmer, IMAX filmmaker Sean Casey and veteran chaser Tim Samaras are back tracking the monster tornados that made headlines throughout this past spring storm season.

October:

DIRTY JOBS WITH MIKE ROWE: Mike Rowe travels the country showcasing America's unsung heroes - from landfill operators to scrapple makers to horse testers - serving as apprentice to these hard-working and skilled men and women who make civilized life possible for the rest of us.

MYTHBUSTERS: Hosts Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, together with Tory Belleci, Kari Byron and Grant Imahara, are back to inquire, interact and get involved with science ... by using experimentation to prove or disprove popular myths, misconceptions or legends.

GOLD RUSH: ALASKA - Friday, October 28 at 10PM: The miners, back with a vengeance, are headed north to Alaska to settle unfinished business and find the gold at the bottom of the glory hole. But unforeseen circumstances force them to come up with a new plan in order to salvage their season.

November:

FLYING WILD ALASKA - Friday, November 4 at 9PM: The unconventional Tweto family - Jim, Ferno and their daughters Ayla and Ariel - are back for a second season to rule Alaska's most dangerous skies with their family-run airline, Era Alaska.
