JOHN NOBLE BRINGS SORDID SCIENCE BACK FROM THE DEAD WITH THE RETURN OF "DARK MATTERS: TWISTED BUT TRUE"

- A Second Season Investigating All-New Creepy Chronicles Premieres July 14 at 10:00 PM (ET/PT) on SCIENCE -

(Silver Spring, Md.)-This summer, SCIENCE returns to the laboratory to unearth history's most sinister tales with the second season of the breakout series DARK MATTERS: TWISTED BUT TRUE. Hosted by the incomparable John Noble (Fringe, Lord of the Rings), DARK MATTERS: TWISTED BUT TRUE opens forbidden research records on the most shocking scientific studies ever executed. From gruesome lobotomy experiments, to controversial CIA studies, to spine-chilling accounts of live human transplants, the all-new season shows that science fact can be stranger - and even more entertaining - than science fiction. The six world premiere episodes take audiences inside a real-life Twilight Zone, where shocking CGI re-creations illustrate unforgettable tales of genius gone horribly awry. DARK MATTERS: TWISTED BUT TRUE premieres Saturday, July 14, at 10:00 PM (ET/PT).

"I've always been drawn to historical tales where great minds take shocking turnsdown unexpected avenues," said Noble. "Overactive ambition can transform brilliance into madness, and DARK MATTERS will take viewers along on this journey on SCIENCE."

"DARK MATTERS: TWISTED BUT TRUE was the network's breakout hit of last summer. Viewers couldn't look away from these unbelievable true stories presented by the one and only John Noble," said Debbie Myers, general manager and executive vice president of SCIENCE. "This series proves that the world of science features epic rivalries, intense dramas, and shocking twists so disturbing that they rival the best that Hollywood has to offer."

The series premiere features a controversial look at one of America's most celebrated figures, asking the question, "Could Charles Lindbergh have been a Nazi?" Lindbergh's fascination with the study of eugenics and Nazi practices led some historians to believe he was preparing for an American Nazi uprising. Viewers also will be introduced to history's most terrifying tune, the infamous Hungarian "suicide song." Believed responsible for more than a dozen self-inflicted deaths in Budapest, the song was later banned for 50 years by the BBC, but the legacy of this mortal melody lives on. Finally, when a tragic accident leaves a man with a gaping wound, he soon finds himself the unwitting subject of a live human organ transplant experiment.

DARK MATTERS: TWISTED BUT TRUE is produced for SCIENCE by Wide-Eyed Entertainment. Dan Gold is executive producer for Wide-Eyed Entertainment. Rocky Collins isexecutive producer and Bernadette McDaid is vice president of production for SCIENCE.
