The show is hosted by Johnny Galecki who orchestrates a team of inventive scientists who use science to feed people’s minds and to mess with their heads will premiere on Wednesday, May 16 at 10 pm ET/ PT.
The show combines cutting-edge science with don’t-try-these-at-home stunts and practical jokes on regular folks. The series is comprised of eight 30-minute episodes designed to highlight science and make you laugh.
Galecki is joined by science prankologists Tamara Robertson and Jason Latimer and together they test out science on unsuspecting marks. The team takes its science pranks from the hard-boiled disciplines of chemistry, physics, technology, engineering, etc. The series says it will show never-before-seen pranks that will introduce audiences to remarkable and unusual scientific discoveries. Who doesn’t love a scientific discovery?
The show humanizes science and ties it to things we do every day, like cooking which illustrates chemical reactions.
