WIRED Science is a brand new television pilot from our good friends at Wired. You can watch it online or catch the premiere tonight on PBS. Another CC friend, David Byrne, did the music for the show’s opening.
Watch the Pilot Episode of WIRED Science
Wednesday, January 3, 2007
8:00 PM EST on PBS (Check local listings.)
Go into the world of meteorite hunters, where space, commerce, and art intersect; travel to Yellowstone National Park, to harvest viruses that may hold the key to a technology revolution; and dive underwater to find NEEMO, NASA’s extreme astronaut training program. Meet rocket belt inventors, stem cell explorers, and the developer of an electric car that goes zero-to-60 in under four seconds.
WIRED Science is one of three pilots under consideration by PBS for series development. You can weigh in on your favorite. Viewer feedback, as well as additional audience-based research, will inform PBS’s decision to greenlight one pilot as the next new science series slated to premiere in Fall 2007.Posted 03 January 2007
