--DINO MADNESS kicks off with back-to-back premieres starting Monday, March 2 at 8/7c, continuing Mondays in March--

Take a journey over 150 million years into the past with Discovery Family Channel's (DFC) monster-sized programming event, DINO MADNESS. Celebrating the majesty and mystery of our planet's early giants, DINO MADNESS takes viewers back to the Jurassic Era and beyond every Monday to experience the massive battles, surprising details, and incredible stories of earth's pre-historic beasts. From winged-Pterodactyls sweeping the skies to spiked-Stegosauruses roaming the waterhole, Jurassic Park comes to life each Monday in March.

To kick off DINO MADNESS, Discovery Family presents the network premiere of Emmy and Peabody award-winning series WALKING WITH DINOSAURS which used revolutionary new CGI and special effects to recreate what life was really like in the age of the dinosaurs. Following WALKING WITH DINOSAURS, Discovery Family introduces Big Al, a once very real and massive carnivore, incredibly preserved and brought to life once more in ALLOSAURUS: A WALKING WITH DINOSAURS SPECIAL. Then discover the shocking truth about the rise and fall of these true monsters who ruled the planet for 135 million years in the world premiere of DINOSAURS: THE UNTOLD STORY. DINO MADNESS begins on Monday, March 2 at 8/7c with back-to-back network premieres of WALKING WITH DINOSAURS, and continues each Monday at 8/7c through the month of March on Discovery Family.

"Discovery Family is thrilled to bring dinosaurs to life in livings rooms across America for DINO MADNESS," said Tom Cosgrove, general manager of Discovery Family Channel. "Highlighting the very best of dinosaur programming, including the hit series WALKING WITH DINOSAURS, DINO MADNESS blasts viewers young and old to the pre-historic past to experience the wonder and excitement of the dinosaur age."

The complete programming line-up of DINO MADNESS is as follows:

Walking With Dinosaurs "Dawn of the Dinosaurs" Network Premiere Monday, March 2 at 8/7c Studies suggest how climate changes precipitated the rise and evolution of ferocious dinosaurs.

Walking With Dinosaurs "Passing of Giants" Network Premiere Monday, March 9 at 8/7c In 106 million BC, alternating seasons of hot summers and harsh winters dictate dinosaurs' habits.
