BAD TO THE BONE: "DINOSAUR REVOLUTION" TO PREMIERE SEPTEMBER 4 AND 11 ON DISCOVERY CHANNEL
On September 4 and 11, the four-hour DINOSAUR REVOLUTION will present dinosaurs like you've never seen them before -- combining the artistic and storytelling talents of the world's most renowned dinosaur illustrators with the most up-to-date discoveries about dinosaurs, their culture and behaviors. DINOSAUR REVOLUTION makes its world premiere on Discovery Channel Sunday, September 4 and Sunday, September 11 from 9-11PM ET/PT each night.
Executive produced by award-winning producer Erik Nelson (Cave of Forgotten Dreams, Grizzly Man), DINOSAUR REVOLUTION is rich in dramatic, pulse-pounding and humorous storytelling -- told via gripping, colorful vignettes and minimal narration. Vividly illustrated by an A-team of animators and illustrators -- including Dave Krentz (Disney's Dinosaur, John Carter of Mars), Ricardo Delgado (Dark Horse Comics' Age of Reptiles), Iain McCaig (Star Wars Ep. 1, 2, 3) and Pete Von Sholly (The Mask, Darkman) -- the series drops viewers directly into the Prehistoric era to showcase dinosaurs in all their living, breathing glory.
As DINOSAUR REVOLUTION illustrates, dinosaurs were far more active, complex and colorful than ever imagined -- more like birds than sluggish reptiles. The series transports viewers to various points of place and time to highlight a host of new behaviors, including exotic mating dances (Gigantoraptor, a dinosaur resembling a 17-foot tall turkey), the inner workings of T-Rex's nuclear family (Tyrannosaurus Rex, who was anything but dull and slow), and the underwater birthing of a huge marine reptile Mosasaurus. DINOSAUR REVOLUTION will also introduce new creatures like a Jurassic flying squirrel (Volaticotherium) and frogs so big they could eat dinosaurs (Beelzebufo).
DINOSAUR REVOLUTION is produced by Creative Differences for Discovery Channel. Erik Nelson is executive producer for Creative Differences; Alan Eyres and Brooke Runnette are executive producers for Discovery Channel.
DINOSAUR REVOLUTION will be available on DVD in November 2011 at www.DiscoveryStore.com.
