Science Channel with Executive Producers Wilmer Valderrama and Tom Forman Explore the World of Exceptional Hair-Raising Creatures in the New Series BUGGING OUT -- Sneak Preview World Premieres Tuesday, October 19, at 9 PM (ET) -- August 6, 2010 (Silver Spring, Md.) Science Channel general manager and executive vice president of programming Debbie Myers announced today that the network is partnering with film and television star Wilmer Valderrama and his WV Enterprises and Emmy® Award-winning executive producer Tom Forman of RelativityREAL to produce BUGGING OUT. An all-new series about the little-known world of exotic (and sometimes creepy) insects, BUGGING OUT is set to debut in 2011. Science Channel is offering viewers a special sneak preview of the series on Tuesday, October 19, 2010, at 9 PM (ET).
The bug world is filled with critters so mysterious that your skin will crawl just at the sight of them. In BUGGING OUT Science Channel invites viewers to look closer, beyond their shadowy exterior, shedding light on the fascinating scientific facts and insights that make these creatures extraordinary works of evolutionary biology.
Our window into the science subculture of the insect world is Ken MacNeil or "Ken the Bug Guy," owner of America's largest insectaria. Ken gets the call when movie studios, television shows, events, laboratories, museums and collectors need exotic, crawly creatures. Each episode of BUGGING OUT follows Ken and his team as they attempt to fill the random and seemingly impossible orders from all over the world. If there is a bug Ken doesn't have immediate access to then he'll venture out on a "bug hunt," an activity he holds close to his heart.
"This is a subculture of science that very few people get to experience," said Myers. "No matter how you feel about bugs and arachnids they are undeniably fascinating creatures with incredible scientific traits. BUGGING OUT shines a spotlight on these insects, offering surprising information and a revealing look at some of Mother Nature's scariest looking, wickedly unique creatures."
"We're so happy to partner with Wilmer again to create this captivating and unique series," said RelativityREAL CEO, Tom Forman. "BUGGING OUT is truly an intriguing new show that will change the way people think about insects. We're excited to be able to bring forth a smart show that touches on the most diverse group of animals on the planet with over a million different species."
"I'm very proud of this series I've been able to create with RelativityREAL," said Valderrama "BUGGING OUT is bound to amaze people and get them more interested in these fascinating creatures that share our world."
In the first episode, rap group Souls of Mischief desperately need at least 40 scorpions that will not harm the cast and crew for an upcoming video shoot. Ken and his team don't have nearly enough in the bug shop so Ken organizes a bug hunt at night in a nearby park. When one night out yields few scorpions and the producers up their order for the bugs, the team must work around the clock to meet the rap video deadline.
BUGGING OUT is produced for Science Channel by RelativityREAL. Wilmer Valderrama and Tom Forman are executive producers for RelativityREAL. David Brown is co-executive producer for RelativityREAL. Christo Doyle is executive producer, and Bernadette McDaid is vice president of production for Science Channel.
