Adventurer Todd Sampson will put his faith in science to the ultimate test in Science Channel’s experimental series Outrageous Acts of Danger.
Produced by Banijay Group-owned prodco Screentime, the 6 x 30-minute factual science series will feature Sampson as he relies on leading physicists, experts and the laws of physics to escape myriad near-death experiments unscathed.
Throughout the inaugural series, Sampson will demonstrate resistance by being shot at point-blank range underwater with an AK-47 and the conservation of energy by staring down a swinging one-ton wrecking ball. He will also validate heat transfer by traveling through a 1,600-degree fire with only a thin layer of water protecting him; prove air pressure by climbing a skyscraper using two household vacuum cleaners; and demonstrate buoyancy by flying with 120 helium balloons.
Outrageous Acts of Danger premieres June 21 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on the Discovery Communications-owned network.
