Netflix has released the first trailer for White Rabbit Project, which sees Mythbusters‘s build team alums Kari Byron, Tory Belleci and Grant Imahara’s return to ‘busting. On the show, the three will investigate weird events in pop culture, history, and science by inserting themselves into self built experiments.
In other words, they’ll do what they do best: be the build team.
The trailer shows a smattering of clips from the show, and it pretty much looks exactly like we hoped it would look. Of course, since the production team is also the same team that made the original Mythbusters, I guess we shouldn’t be surprised.
The first season of White Rabbit Project hits Netflix December 9th.
On this episode of Nerd & Tie we celebrate 50 years of Star Trek, contemplate the possibility of the late Majel Barret-Rodenberry still voicing the computer in future Treks, rejoice in the Build Team’s return to ‘Busting in The White Rabbit Project, discuss Stranger Things and its season 2 renewal, and consider the possible remake of The Crow starring Jason Momoa.
Mythbusters was a cultural phenomenon, and for most of its run Kari Byron, Tory Belleci and Grant Imahara were an integral part of it. And while “The Build Team” (as they were referred to during a large portion of the show’s run) was let go over a year before the series’ eventual cancellation, they’re still the people that come to mind for many when they think about historical and pop culture myths.
Well the good news is that they’re going to be back at it — on Netflix no less.
Deadline is reporting that Netflix has ordered The White Rabbit Project to series. The show will be about going down the metaphorical rabbit hole, as the three investigate weird events in pop culture, history, and science. Doing so, the three will do what they do best — inserting themselves into self built experiments to get.a better understanding of what happened.
So yes, the Build Team shall build again.
Beyond Productions, which produced Mythbusters for Discovery Channel, will be making the show, and it’s expected to premiere on Netflix this December.
