EXPLOSIVE, ACTION-PACKED WEEK OF PREMIERES IN THE WORLD PREMIERE SERIES 'THE DETONATORS' AND 'ADRENALINE RUSH HOUR'

-- Catch Unbelievable Blasts, premiering WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 28 at 8pm (ET/PT) and Adrenaline Packed True-Life Stories, premiering FRIDAY, JANUARY 30 at 9pm (ET/PT) --

(Silver Spring, MD) On Wednesday, January 28 from 8-9PM ET/PT, Discovery Channel launches the world premiere series THE DETONATORS. This 13-part series follows explosives experts Dr. Braden Lusk and Dr. Paul Worsey as they provide a unique, behind-the-scenes look at how blast specialists demolish engineering feats with the push of a button. From urban skyscrapers to massive steel bridges and giant stadiums, they meet the highly skilled blasters who can bring any structure to the ground -- and utilize special sacrifice cameras and high-speed technology to explain the precise science behind each explosion. In the premiere episode of THE DETONATORS, they visit the blast sites of two steel structures: one, a pair of bridge towers in Texas; the second, two harbor cranes in England.

Then brace for impact, because Discovery Channel's new �caught-on-camera� series, ADRENALINE RUSH HOUR, premiering Friday, January 30 at 9pm ET/PT is a reality thrill ride unlike any other. This is more than just the hottest collection of shocking explosions, incredible rescues, outrageous antics, and stunts gone bad. It's high-octane video done the Discovery way, one-of-a-kind insights into every pulse-pounding clip. From a racecar driver's explosive crash into a barrier at 120 miles per hour to a high-flying kiteboarder's nasty body slam into a seaside house, each episode of ADRENALINE RUSH HOUR places you on the speed track for all the heart-stopping action. You'll be witness to fate and hear the direct perspective of those who plunged into catastrophe and lived to tell the tale.
