"MYTHBUSTERS" RETURNS THIS SUMMER WITH ALL-NEW EPISODES BEGINNING SATURDAY, JULY 18TH

(New York, NY) The boys are back for another incredible summer season of Discovery's longest running series, MYTHBUSTERS. The science bonanza starts on Saturday, July 18th at 9pm ET/PT, when hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman attempt to blow a boat clean out of the water using 1,000 lbs of high explosives. They also take on the most requested myth of the year when they team up with Break Bad EP Vince Gilligan to test out the ability of a homemade machine gun, just like the one Walter White used in the Breaking Bad finale.

Upcoming episodes include:

· STAR WARS: The Myths Strike Back when Adam and Jamie once again confront the dark side of science in a workshop not so far, far away. A recurring theme in the movies is the ability of the heroes to dodge, evade and dive out of the way of an incoming Stormtrooper shot. But is that possible? The guys also tackle the iconic scene from Episode III when Anakin is defeated in an epic light-sabre duel.

· FLIGHTS OF FANTASY: Adam and Jamie tackle the ultimate aviation investigation: is the U-2 really the toughest aircraft in regular use to fly and land? The guys also take on the next big technological development in commercial delivery - remote control multi rotor drones.

· ACCIDENTAL AMMO: The guys test out whether a stone shot from a lawn mower can have the same power as a bullet shot from a .357. Next Adam and Jamie look into the story of a pane of glass falling from a construction site and cutting an innocent bystander completely in half from head to toe.

· SUPERNATURAL SHOOTERS: Adam and Jamie take aim at Hollywood's hit men and their supernatural ability to take down a target. First up, the guys test out whether a well-placed shot through an interior wall could really kill. Next, Adam and Jamie look to epic gun-toting movie "Shoot 'Em Up" to see if handheld bullets can really bet set off by thrusting your hand into fire.

Inspiring a generation to inquire, interact and get involved with science, MYTHBUSTERS uses a signature brand of explosive experimentation to prove or disprove popular myths, misconceptions or legends. Over the past 13 years, the team has tested 984 myths, filmed over 8000 hours, created 880 explosions and used 62,500 yards of duct tape.

MYTHBUSTERS is produced for Discovery Channel by Beyond Productions. For Beyond Productions, Dan Tapster serves as show runner and executive producer. Joshua C. Berkley and Hugh Peterson serve as executive producers for Discovery Channel with Sara Van Acker as associate producer.
