3net Studios, the production JV from Sony, Discovery and IMAX, has added three more 4K titles to its development slate, and had also begun production on reality series Turn & Burn (pictured).

The company has added 4K documentary and natural history series National Parks Adventure, Metropolis and Made by Man to its development slate. All titles are working titles.

In addition, the production company has begun principal photography on two native 3D television series, Turn & Burn, a 6 x 30-minute reality series following the crew of El Reyes Garage in Venice, California; and Dark Secrets, a 8 x 30-minute series with recreations of supernatural psychic events.

3net is also busy finalizing post-producing on another season of Hillbilly Blood: A Hardscrabble Life. The 12 x 30-minute series is set to simulcast on 3net in 3D and Destination America in 2D on April 13.

“With a 2013 forecast of continued dramatic 3D TV penetration – and now a faster than anticipated rollout of 4K – 3net Studios is bolstering our current roster of original 3D and 4K production to keep pace with the growing demand from the global marketplace,” said Tom Cosgrove, president and CEO of 3net and 3net Studios.

3net Studios previously announced details of flagship 4K title Space.
