Mythbusters Grant, Kari, & Tory Getting New Show
When it was announced that the “The Build Team” consisting of Grant Imahara, Tory Belleci, and Kari Byron were going to be booted out of their M7 warehouse and off of the Mythbusters, we were saddened. Now it seems the gaping science shaped hole left in our hearts is going to be filled once more by Netflix, who is currently positioning itself as a television studio in it’s own right. A tweet by Dragon Con has revealed that the threesom are going to be reunited on an new show called “The White Rabbit Project.”

According to The Nerdist, who broke the story, nearly nothing is known about the show so far, except for what was revealed by Leif Anderson who was present for the announcement. “They described it as ‘Mythbusters in Wonderland.’ The subjects they tackle are those that you find when you ‘go down the rabbit hole on the internet.’ Then they showed a hilarious teaser clip of Tory and Kari sitting down for some wine, except Tory is strapped up to a bunch of wires and Kari is attempting to control his arm movements remotely. You can imagine how well it turned out,” said Anderson.
The Mythbusters, which premiered in 2003, has been a huge part of my life and the lives of many other people. They taught us to question things we hear, how to think critically and creatively. and that any problem can be solved by using the Scientific Method and ample amounts of explosives. Grant, Tory, and Kari were a big part of that. Tory Belleci, and Kari Byron (who actually made her Mythbusters debut as a butt model in the second episode) were organized into a second on screen team with metal-worker Scottie Chapman. When Chapman left after the third season, Grant Imahara was brought on as her replacement until they were unceremoniously shown the door in 2014.
I am incredibly excited to see what direction Netflix is going to go with this show, and you can be sure that we will keep you posted when we find out more!
