Science Channel Reviving 'MythBusters,' Seeking Hosts Via Reality Series

Please tell me this is some kind of a joke. I mean, this just sounds too goofy to be true. Then again, this is a great way to get hosts that will work for a fraction of what Adam and Jamie were probably getting for the last few seasons of MythBusters.

The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively that the Discovery-owned cable network has greenlighted a reality competition series titled Search for the Next MythBusters, which comes on the heels of the series finale for the original show in early March. MythBusters, which ran for 14 seasons, featured Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman using science to put various myths and rumors to the test. Search will focus on finding an "all-new generation of myth-busting science superstars with mind-blowing build skills and nerves of steel." It will involve both social media and stunts as it tests a cast of hopefuls on their skills as they compete in various challenges.
