DISCOVERY CHANNEL REVISITS EPIC EXPERIMENTS AND MAVERICK MECHANICS WITH CLASSIC EPISODES OF "MYTHBUSTERS" AND "MONSTER GARAGE" DURING "THROWBACK WEEKEND"

THROWBACK WEEKEND Begins Saturday, June 17 at 7PM ET/PT

(New York) - Discovery Channel is turning back time and resurrecting supersized episodes of MythBusters and Monster Garage for THROWBACK WEEKEND, beginning Saturday, June 17 at 7PM ET/PT. Featuring all-new footage, myth-busting masterminds Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage and master mechanic Jesse James host the ultimate blast from the past - packed with epic car builds and lots and lots of duct tape.

THROWBACK WEEKEND kicks off with some of the stickiest MythBusters episodes of all time as hosts Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage rewind the clocks to two of their favorite duct tape themed episodes. The hosts of the Emmy(R)-nominated series will share new insights, series secrets, and will reveal their top experiments of the 946 tested over the years. Jamie and Adam also respond to viewer questions and comments about the popular myths, misconceptions, and legends tested in the series' 11-year run.

Next up, Discovery speeds back to two iconic episodes of Monster Garage, one of the first shows of its kind to transform trucks, roadsters, and cars in a matter of days. How does an armored truck become a mobile dunk tank? How can you turn an abandoned Anglia into a high-speed dragster? Host and car-savant Jesse James will share series secrets, recount epic builds, and reveal what he's been up to since the beloved series ended in 2006.
