"MYTHBUSTERS" CELEBRATES 11 YEAR ANNIVERSARY WITH ALL-NEW EPISODES BEGINNING SATURDAY, JANUARY 4

(Los Angeles, CA) Starting January 4 at 8pm ET/PT, MYTHBUSTERS kicks off all-new episodes by contriving to separate physics from fiction with a STAR WARS themed episode featuring Sophia Bush, the star of NBC's CHICAGO PD. Could Luke really have swung across a huge chasm on the end of a rope while holding Princess Leia and trying to escape Stormtroopers? Could Hans' ingenuity of stuffing Luke inside a Tauntaun have saved him from the bitterly cold and deadly elements of Hoth? And could the primitive weapons of the Ewoks realistically take down some of Darth Vader's most sophisticated weapons?

MYTHBUSTERS, which kicked off on Discovery Channel in 2003, is hosted by Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, along with Tory Belleci, Kari Byron and Grant Imahara. Inspiring a generation to inquire, interact and get involved with science, MYTHBUSTERS uses a signature brand of explosive experimentation to prove or disprove popular myths, misconceptions or legends. Over the past 11 years, the team has tested 925 myths, filmed over 7600 hours, created 840 explosions and used 53,100 yards of duct tape.

Additional Spring 2014 myths:

· MOONSHINERS - The guys join forces in this Moonshiners themed episode to put Moonshine myths to the test. First, Adam and Jamie take on the myth of the Exploding Still. Supposedly a leaking still caused a house to blow up when a match ignited the fumes. But could this really be possible? The next Moonshiner story goes that not only can you run a car on moonshine but supposedly you can make it go faster than a car on gasoline. To put this to the ultimate test, Kari, Tory and Grant make their own moonshine and then take a bunch of cars for a spin.

· TRAFFIC TRICKS - The whole team investigates mythical ways to cut journey times, avoid traffic jams and get home the fastest way. What really causes the dreaded shockwave traffic jams? Can it be something as simple as a slight tap on the brakes? And which traffic tactic gets you to your destination the fastest: patiently staying in one lane in heavy traffic, or doing some fancy lane changing all the way home?

MYTHBUSTERS is produced for Discovery Channel by Beyond Productions. For Beyond Productions, Dan Tapster serves as executive producer. Cameo Wallace serves as executive producer for Discovery Channel with Tara Hunter as coordinating producer.
