‘Mythbusters’ hits the road

TV co-hosts lead national arena tour

The hosts of Discovery Channel skein “Mythbusters” will lead a live, branded theater tour, “Mythbusters: Behind the Myths,” hitting the road in North America in January.

“Behind the Myths” features tube co-hosts Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage serving as ringleaders in a live outing that includes onstage experiments, behind-the-scenes tales, video components and aud participation.

Now in its ninth season, the science-oriented series “Mythbusters” has gained a rep for explosive experiments investigating the plausibility of commonly held beliefs. Among the show’s more attention-grabbing recent exploits was an appearance by President Obama tasking the duo with testing a heat-ray military tactic attributed to Archimedes.

“Behind the Myths” launches in Modesto, Calif., Jan. 6 prior to making stops at more than 25 cities including L.A., New York, San Francisco and Washington D.C.

“Walking with Dinosaurs,” another series that aired on Discovery, has earlier found success in a internationally touring live version that preemed in 2007.
