Shark Week Mythbusters 2008
With just a few weeks to go until this years 2008 Shark Week we can begin to tell you about this springs shoot with the guys from MythBusters in the Bahamas.
Well actually we can't, you'll have to wait until the show airs...and you'll want to see this show.
Suffice to say Shark Divers was called upon to select the dive sites, wrangle the sharks, build the cage systems and to provide the right shark environment for Discovery Channels top grossing show hosts Adam and Jamie, we're happy to say this show will be one of their best shark shows ever.
Underwater shark expert Luke Tipple was their go to guy for all things sharky this spring and their dive safety officer as well. Beyond Productions are the crew behind the Mythbusters and we have yet to work with a tighter bunch in the industry, these guys make tough shoots look easy.
We can tell you both Jamie and Adam are two of the most original guys we have either met on and off camera what you see on television is what you get in person. It's little wonder MythBusters has been the top rated show on Discovery for years now and they were handed the coveted 2 hour show special this season.
What we liked most about this team was their ability to "think outside the box" embracing the cool visuals, and cool science based experiments that keep viewers interested and enguaged.
Miami, Florida -- Shark Week, summer television's must-see event, is back for its 21st year on Discovery Channel, from July 27 to August 1, 2008 at 9PM ET/PT.
Cable television's longest-running programming event will kick off Sunday, July 27 at 9PM ET/PT with the Mythbusters Shark Special. This two-hour special follows the MythBusters as they hit the deep blue to take a bite out of shark folklore. Among the myths tackled in this special: Are sharks repelled by magnets? Do dogs attract sharks? Do the vibrations caused by a flapping injured fish attract sharks.
Throughout the week, Discovery will run public-service announcements for the Ocean Conservancy, educating viewers about threats facing sharks.
Last year's Shark Week was watched by 27.2 million viewers, the most successful Shark Week to date.
