Science greenlights ‘Oddities’ spinoff

New series to take place in San Francisco

Science is moving to the West Coast with its “Oddities” franchise.

The Discovery cabler has greenlit spinoff “Oddities: San Francisco,” where the action will center at eccentric-goods store Loved to Death. Shop is home to thousands of obscure items, and the skein will focus on both the wares on the shelves and the customers who come in and browse. Skein is produced by Brent Montgomery’s Leftfield Pictures.

Original “Oddities” has been a hit for the net in the 25-54 demo, and last week’s two telecasts drew a combined series-record 743,000 viewers. New back-to-back episodes air at 9 p.m. Saturdays.

” ‘Oddities’ opened Science to a huge subculture of viewers who crave the odd and unusual,” said Science topper Debbie Adler Myer.
