"DANGEROUS TOYS" FEATURING ADAM SAVAGE AND JAMIE HYNEMAN OF "MYTHBUSTERS" PREMIERES JANUARY 11 AT 9PM

After years of working together, Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage of MythBusters are finally squaring off against each other as they fabricate the necessary components to play an elaborate child's game of war. They will utilize ingenuity and innovation as they try to take each other down. DANGEROUS TOYS, an all-new one-hour special executive produced by Savage and Hyneman, will premiere Saturday, Jan. 11 at 9PM ET/PT.

DANGEROUS TOYS features Savage and Hyneman's adult interpretations of a child's game of war, where a sandcastle could be a fortress and a cardboard box can open an entire universe of play. To help create their vehicles, weapons and fortifications, they tap back into a child's imagination with their DANGEROUS TOYS brain trust, a group of pre-teens who offer up limitless ideas and soaring imaginations.

A 25-foot couch fort and explosive robotic armies are just a few of the replicas Savage and Hyneman assemble in DANGEROUS TOYS. In the end there is one simple goal: to bring each other down. Hyneman will do whatever he can to conquer Savage's fort while Savage does the same as each man fends off a succession of blistering attacks. This battle between Hyneman and Savage has been years in the making, and only one man will stand victorious in the end.

DANGEROUS TOYS is produced for Discovery Channel by Discovery Studios and BermanBraun. Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage are executive producers. For Discovery Studios, Lia Carney is VP of Production and Operations, Gary Shapiro is executive producer, and David C. Brown is co-executive producer. For BermanBraun, Gail Berman, Lloyd Braun, Chris Cowan, Eugene Stein and Rob Donnell are executive producers. Cameo Wallace is executive producer for Discovery Channel with Tara Hunter as coordinating producer.
