‘MythBusters’ Star to Blow Stuff Up Every Week on TestTube
“MythBusters” star Tory Belleci is launching a new web series today in partnership with Discovery Digital Networks. In the show, called “Blow It Up,” Belleci will take viewers’ old items, share the story behind that item, and then as the title suggests blow that item up. Per the announcement, the featured item can be anything that caused a bad memory for the viewer, including a disgusting couch, an old girlfriend’s letters and fits, or a “vehicle renovation project gone bad.”
The series premieres today on TestTube, Discovery Digital’s science- and knowledge-focused online video network. The first episode welcomes Revision3 founder David Prager, who along with Tory blows up a Volvo in the New Mexico desert. New episodes will premiere every Monday. Discovery says future episodes will feature YouTubers Richard Ryan and Corridor Digital, among an array of user-submitted items.
Discovery Digital Networks is the digital division within Discovery Communications, overseeing Revision3, TestTube, and Phil DeFranco Networks.Tags: Discovery Communications, Discovery Digital Networks, Mythbusters, Phil DeFranco Networks, revision3, TestTube, Tory Belleci
