Starz isn’t the only network to offer some exciting details on their Comic-Con plans today. The Discovery Channel will also be playing host to a few panels at the San Diego convention this July. In addition to a Mythbusters panel, there will also be a panel for Penn and Teller’s new series and one for Discovery’s upcoming new show Reign of the Dinosaurs.
While Starz has their Spartacus and Torchwood panels set up on Friday, July 22nd, Discovery’s panels are spread out, with the Penn & Teller Tell a Lie panel taking place on Thursday, July 21st, the Reign of the Dinosaurs panel set up for Friday, July 22nd, and Mythbusters scheduled for Saturday, July 23rd.
Penn and Teller will make their return to Comic-Con to share a look at their new series Penn & Teller Tell a Lie, which explores various “urgent questions of the modern world,” like whether or not it’s possible to lift a 5000 lb car with human hair and whether or not cursing helps with pain management.
Discovery describes Reign of Dinosaurs (working title) by saying, “the series will reset the standard for realistic dinosaur storytelling, giving the ultimate insiders' view into the private lives and weird behaviors of dinosaurs.” If you attended Comic-Con last year, you may have seen the behind-the-scenes look at the artistic development of the series, which has yet to air (look for it on Discovery this fall). At this year’s Comic Con, the Reign of Dinosaurs panel will include producer Erik Nelson (Cave of Forgotten Dreams),David Krentz (Disney's Dinosaur), Ricardo Delgado (Dark Horse Comics' Age of Reptiles) and will show off how far the show’s development has come since last year.
Finally, Adam, Jamie, Tory, Grant and Kari will be present for the Mythbusters panel set to take place on Saturday. The team will be on hand to “talk about their recent exploits and upcoming fall mythbuster-y goodness!”
So, if you’re a fan of Discovery programming, you’ll be able to get a nearly daily fix at the con this year (if you can get a seat).
