DISCOVERY CHANNEL'S "CURIOSITY" SERIES GOES INSIDE THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE IN SEARCH OF ANSWERS TO THIS ANCIENT MYSTERY
The Devil's Triangle Premieres Sunday, Oct. 14 at 9 PM E/P
(Los Angeles, Calif.) - Ships disappear without a trace and planes vanish into thin air. Barely a month goes by without a boat or airplane vanishing without a trace in the Bermuda Triangle. Many theories exist, but what's really going on?
In CURIOSITY The Devil's Triangle, airing Sunday, Oct. 14 at 9 PM E/P on Discovery Channel, a team of investigators go deep into the triangle to explore ocean floor wrecks and stage experiments to tackle the mystery once and for all. In the last hundred years, countless lives have been lost but nobody is really sure why. Is it some form of extreme weather? A rare ocean phenomenon? Or could something else be at work? Testing theories on a scale never done before, CURIOSITY looks at the science behind one of the world's most mysterious places.
CURIOSITY, now in its second season on Discovery Channel, brings the 'I wonder?' moment to television with a unique array of provocative subjects. Upcoming episodes in CURIOSITY include:
· I Was Mummified, airing Sunday, Oct. 21, looks at a radical experiment where a dying man gifts his body to scientists attempting to uncover the secrets of Ancient Egypt's best embalmers.
· Brainwashed, airing Sunday, Oct. 28, explores whether we truly are in command of our own minds and follows a hypnotherapist and a group of scientists as they embark on an audacious experiment to see if ordinary people can be brainwashed and turned into assassins.
CURIOSITY The Devil's Triangle is produced by Darlow Smithson Productions Limited for Discovery Channel. Vice President, Development and Production Howard Swartz served as the Executive Producer for Discovery Channel and Simon Andreae is Senior Vice President, Development and Production.
