HIGH STAKES FOR BELUSHI’S FARM IN AN ALL-NEW SEASON OF ‘GROWING BELUSHI’ PREMIERING JANUARY 19





HIGH STAKES FOR BELUSHI’S FARM IN AN ALL-NEW SEASON OF ‘GROWING BELUSHI’ PREMIERING JANUARY 19 ON DISCOVERY

Season two of the hit-series premieres Wednesday, January 19
at 10pm ET/PT on Discovery
(NEW YORK – January 5, 2022) — Ain’t no mountain high enough for Jim Belushi! After growing his passion into a successful and bustling business, Jim and his team of farmers are on a mission to rebrand and rebuild their cannabis farm from small and boutique to premium high-end for the masses. In an effort to meet increasing national demand, they’re bringing state of the art technology, cultivation methods, new equipment and new facilities to Belushi’s Farm – and the results are as promising as they are challenging. It’s a season all about regrowth and growth, and we’ve got high hopes for Belushi’s Farm!

An all-new season of GROWING BELUSHI premieres Wednesday, January 19 at 10pm ET/PT on Discovery. Follow the conversation on social media with #GrowingBelushi, and follow Discovery on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for more updates.

“In this season of GROWING BELUSHI, you’ll witness my evolution from hobby boutique cultivator to multi-state business operator. This year is not only about the expansion of our business, but our mission to spread awareness about the plant as a pathway to healing,” said Belushi. “And, you’ll learn about the burgeoning industry, how it intersects with politics and how I handle the pressure — between weathering the elements, rebuilding the farm, and overseeing Chris’ new restaurant…. well, there are many challenges to tackle with laughs along the way.”

This season, the crew is faced with the challenge of farming — weather, mold, pests — and re-growing their unique proprietary strains after they were destroyed last season (blame Jim!). With the help of some friends and familiar faces — including Dan Aykroyd, Larry Joe Campbell, Guy Fieri, and cousin Chris — it’s a joint effort to get things back on course and achieve greatness within the competitive world of cannabis.

And of course, there are many new adventures, such as cousin Chris building and operating a tiny restaurant with one table on the farm called the Engjell Café, which introduces a whole new element of stress and comedy as Chris experiments with cannabis-infused cuisine. As Jim likes to say with a smile, “Reservations are tough, the food is great, but with one table and free food, the Engjell Cafe is the most exclusive restaurant in southern Oregon. The only problem is the owner is a pain in the a**.”

This unique brand of edutainment is equally funny as it is informative. GROWING BELUSHI sheds light on Jim’s journey of self-discovery and the incredible effort it takes to build and operate a legal medicinal cannabis farm with the dream of helping others on their pathway to heal and thrive.

GROWING BELUSHI is produced for Discovery by Whitehorse Productions where James Orr and Jim Belushi are executive producers. For Discovery, Kyle Wheeler and Joseph Schneier are executive producers and Jessica Mollo is associate producer.

About Belushi’s Farm
What began as a meager 48 plants during Oregon’s medical marijuana program in 2015, today Belushi’s Farm encompasses a sprawling and spiritual 93 acres with 1,800 feet of Rogue River riverfront in Southern Oregon’s Banana Belt where the sun, water and air make the perfect combination to sustain naturally powerful and beautiful cannabis. Belushi’s Farm is home to a range of offerings — Chasing Magic (Jim’s Secret Stash), The Blues Brothers, Captain Jack’s Gulzar Afghanica (a rare strain from the Hindu Kush region that became known in the ’70s as “The Smell of SNL”), and GROWING BELUSHI on The Discovery Channel. Having suffered the loss of his brother John to an overdose, and his own journey learning and healing through cultivating cannabis, the farm’s proprietor, performer Jim Belushi, is a proponent of the plant’s beneficial properties across a spectrum of uses. From enhancing joy and quality of life, mitigating trauma and managing pain, to a harm reduction approach and rebuttal of the opioid abuse epidemic, Jim advocates for patient rights, adult-use legalization, and freeing cannabis prisoners through his work as advisor to Last Prisoner Project, while empowering newcomers to access the profound spiritual and healing powers of quality cannabis.

The best names in the racing biz are back and bigger than ever, with plenty of surprises, shocking twists and turns, and a whole lot of heart, grit, grease, and good times. From camaraderie and conflict with the OKC crew, to JJ Da Boss leading the charge to see who will be named the Fastest in America, and the return of two familiar Street Outlaw names who are taking their crazy antics and whacky builds to new levels, it all starts on the streets this January.

The new series STREET OUTLAWS: FARMTRUCK AND AZN premieres Monday, January 10 at 10pm ET/PT on Discovery following an all-new season of STREET OUTLAWS: OKC at 8pm ET/PT on Discovery and streaming on discovery+.

‘STREET OUTLAWS: OKC’ Premieres Monday, January 10 at 8pm ET/PT on Discovery and streams on discovery+

This season on STREET OUTLAWS: OKC, the 405 is back together, one year after Chief threw out the Top Ten List to launch America’s List. After a disappointing showing in that race, the gang begins another all-out qualifier for the next season of America’s list. Past performances, good or bad, don’t matter – it’s a fresh start for all. With new beginnings, Chief believes the best way to get back to the heart of the 405 is to revive the camaraderie and teamwork mentality that was once their staple. This season, everyone will pool their knowledge and efforts to not only better themselves, but each other. But it won’t be easy as Chief throws some surprise out of town races at them. And one of the crew faces one of the most devastating crashes in Outlaws history.

In the world of Street Outlaws, Farmtruck and AZN are synonymous with crazy antics and wacky builds.

After opening their own top-secret garage with one of the best teams around to build some of the craziest, wildest, fastest builds yet, they only have one goal in mind: prove you can’t judge a car by its appearance. From a farm boat and an air cannon on wheels, to a prison bus turned dragster and nearly everything in between, viewers are along for the ride as these builds go from concept to construct to racetrack and beyond. No idea is too crazy, and as the pros like to say, it’s no big deal – just add wheels!

‘STREET OUTLAWS: FASTEST IN AMERICA’ Premieres Tuesday, January 11 at 8pm ET/PT on Discovery

JJ Da Boss and the MSO are ready for another epic street race, this time with a lineup of eight elite teams from across the U.S. In an all-new season of STREET OUTLAWS: FASTEST IN AMERICA, the winner of the bracket battle will take home a record-breaking purse of over $100K, and better yet, the bragging rights to the title of Fastest in America.

ALL-NEW SEASON OF ‘MYSTERY AT BLIND FROG RANCH’ TAKES VIEWERS BACK TO THE ‘CURSED’ LAND





ALL-NEW SEASON OF ‘MYSTERY AT BLIND FROG RANCH’ TAKES VIEWERS BACK TO THE ‘CURSED’ LAND ON THE ULTIMATE HUNT FOR TREASURE

Series premieres Friday, January 7 at 10PM ET/PT on Discovery
(Los Angeles)– Blind Frog Ranch–Duane Ollinger’s sprawling 160-acre property in Utah’s Uintah Basin–continues to reveal its perplexing secrets. After discovering a large wooden box in a flooded cavern, Duane and his team are hellbent on extracting it from the cave, believing it contains the fabled treasure of the Aztecs. Tune into the all-new season of MYSTERY AT BLIND FROG RANCH, premiering on Friday, January 7, at 10PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel.

After the winter freeze shut down their operation last year, Duane Ollinger and his son Chad, head of ranch security Charlie Snider, world-renowned geologist Eric Drummond, and investigator Jamie Dube return to Blind Frog Ranch to continue their quest for Aztec gold. When attempting to remove the box from the cave results in near-disaster, Eric discovers another incredible mystery: the large rocks that are inside the box have been bored, and contain cylinders of a strange metal that liquifies at room temperature. Could this be part of the Aztec treasure, or is it a new mystery? Nobody is certain.

But Duane and his team are not alone in their pursuit of the sunken treasure. After finding a remote-operated surveillance camera aiming directly at their worksite, the men suspect they are being watched. Military helicopters buzzing over the property, gun-weilding intruders, and a murder investigation push suspicions to the edge. The men work tirelessly to get into the cavern to secure the box–and its mysterious contents–before someone else beats them to it.

Finally, after mapping the fault system of the ranch, Eric discovers a dry entrance to the cavern. Wasting no time, Duane drills directly into the cavern and forges a new access point. But when they detect radioactivity emitting from the newly drilled hole, the operation is once again jeopardized. Will Duane decide to risk his life entering the cavern, or risk the possibility of losing the treasure to unknown intruders?

Discovery, Inc. and Samsung Partner to Raise Awareness of Tiger Conservation Around Project C.A.T.
As part of the partnership a stunning short film, “Eye to Eye with the Tiger,” was produced to help build awareness of this initiative.
[via press release from Discovery, Inc.]
DISCOVERY, INC. AND SAMSUNG PARTNER TO RAISE AWARENESS OF TIGER CONSERVATION AROUND PROJECT C.A.T.

-Short Film Eye to Eye with the Tiger Filmed on Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G Raises Awareness for Tiger Conservation-

Discovery, Inc., a global leader in real life entertainment, and Samsung are raising awareness for the need to protect and conserve tigers in the wild to audiences around the globe through a content partnership around Discovery’s Project C.A.T. (Conserving Acres for Tigers). As part of the partnership a stunning short film, Eye to Eye with the Tiger, was produced to help build awareness of this initiative. The film follows wildlife photographer Yashas Narayan as he journeys through India on a mission to track, film and photograph a tiger in the wild filmed with Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G.

Discovery supports nearly six million acres of tiger habitat across India, Bhutan and Russia through its Project C.A.T. launched in partnership with World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to help protect and support the conservation of a transboundary tiger landscape that is a global priority for tiger conservation. This key area also supports local economies, alternative livelihoods, and climate justice for the most marginalized. Discovery joined the ambitious goal of conservation groups to double the wild tiger population by 2022, the next Year of the Tiger in the Chinese Zodiac.

Eye to Eye with the Tiger, which can be seen in its entirety at https://youtu.be/EuAqbGsPNtY, follows Mr. Narayan as he travels through India with BAFTA award- winning filmmaker Vikram Singh who serves as the film’s director, to meet a tiger while shining a light on the dangers this majestic animal faces in the wild. Guided by a local conservationist, Narayan searches for tiger tracks and takes note of signs from prey species as he gets closer to the moment he will see a tiger while taking video footage and still images simultaneously with the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G. The film reaches its climax when Narayan comes face to face with a tiger hunting prey, a shot that encapsulates the beauty of this animal and brings to life the purpose of the mission of Project C.A.T.

“Discovery is a purpose-driven company with a strong commitment to conservation and protecting wildlife. Tigers are among the most revered species on the planet and today we extend our mission to ensure a future for tigers so there will always be stories to tell through this first of its kind partnership with Samsung and Project C.A.T.,” said Jessica Beatus, Global Vice President, Standards and Social Good, Discovery.

“We are very pleased to be collaborating with Discovery to enlighten the importance of tiger conservation and to be a part of the campaign by capturing the scenes with Galaxy S21 Ultra. Through our collaboration, we look forward to both showcasing the beauty of one of world’s most majestic animals with our super high-resolution camera whilst simultaneously raising awareness around the importance of the conservation of tigers in the years to come,” said Jung Suh, VP and Head of Global Digital Marketing Group, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics.

“The jungle is full of symbiotic relationships. It’s remarkable to see how animals depend on each other. I am delighted to have captured some raw moments that emphasize how important tigers are in the circle of life,” said Mr. Narayan

What Goes in Must Come Out! New Discovery Series “This Came Out of Me” Takes Audiences Deep Inside





WHAT GOES IN MUST COME OUT! NEW DISCOVERY SERIES “THIS CAME OUT OF ME” TAKES AUDIENCES DEEP INSIDE EXTREME AND UNUSUAL MEDICAL EMERGENCIES

Working in the Emergency Room is all about rolling with the punches and is not for the squeamish. For the doctors and nurses at the 21 SignatureCare Emergency Center locations throughout Texas, it’s a chance to take on the challenge of helping people with painful, unusual, and sometimes even gruesome emergency cases. In an all-new series that the question ‘how did that get there?’ audiences will be guided by fashion model turned ER physician, Dr. Ruby Rose, one of twenty-one medical directors who oversee these freestanding ERs. She will treat us to everyday situations in which things end up in places they just shouldn’t be – from a monster bug getting stuck in a patient’s ear to a piece of concrete getting trapped in a patient’s leg, what goes in must come out! THIS CAME OUT OF ME premieres Sunday, Jan. 2 at 9PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel.

THIS CAME OUT OF ME is a behind-the-scenes look inside the world of emergency medicine, where draining a cyst in an unusual location or removing a workplace tool pierced through the hand is just another day at the office. Dr. Rose guides us through the multiple emergency facilities based out of Odessa, Austin, Midland, Houston, and other locations, where she and other skilled physicians resolve these Texas-sized medical emergencies.

Throughout the season of THIS CAME OUT OF ME, these dedicated medical professionals take on everyday cases, from a painful ingrown toenail to a broken arm, to unusual situations such as a speck of metal in the eye and a toddler who says she swallowed her princess doll. The unforgettable premiere spotlights Charlotte, a toddler who has wound up with a bead stuck up her nose that must be removed before she inhales the foreign body; Juan, a mechanic who heads to the ER when his hand is accidentally impaled with a tool while working on a car engine; Willis, who is suffering from an unruly abscess that has unfortunately taken root on his rear-end; Frank who is treated for a deep laceration on his index finger; and John, who is experiencing painful swelling in a very delicate area…

Viewers can follow the conversation on social media with #ThisCameOutOfMe, and follow Discovery on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for more updates.

THIS CAME OUT OF ME is produced for Discovery Channel by Texas Crew Productions where Eric Begley, David Karabinas, Evan Goldstein and Brad Bernstein are executive producers. For Discovery Channel, Wyatt Channell, Caroline Perez and Scott Lewers are executive producers and Andrew Lessner is producer.

More than 60 teams travel to Las Vegas for a chance to take home the greatest prize in the sport: The Giant Nut. Each night a vicious lineup of bots battle for their lives in the iconic BattleBox but only the toughest will live to see the next round.

New Zealand’s End Game currently has the trophy, but teams from the USA are determined to bring it back to America. Will they succeed, or will the trophy find a new home in Europe, Asia or South America?

Rivals meet again, more determined than ever to be victorious. Former title holder Tombstone returns to the BattleBox. After missing the 2020 season, Blacksmith, Minotaur, DUCK! and Icewave make their triumphant returns to wage war against fan favorites Witch Doctor, SawBlaze, Hydra, Whiplash and Valkyrie, but only one will be crowned the top bot in the world.

“Delighted to kick off the new year and welcome viewers back into the BattleBox with 14 all-new episodes filled with some of the most intense bot battles we’ve ever seen,” said Scott Lewers, EVP Multiplatform Programming Discovery Factual & Head of Content, Science. “Thursday night robot fighting action’s back and better than ever!”

BattleBots founder and CEO Edward Roski (Trey) said, “This year’s World Championship was the most exciting ever, and the battles are beyond amazing. The builders did an incredible job raising the bar to a completely new level of imagination, skill and, frankly, violence. There are shocks and upsets, and heartwarming triumphs over technical and personal challenges. It’s going to be our best ever season, and we can’t wait for the start of January so we can share all the drama with our millions of fans.”

Adding more excitement to the battles are returning sportscaster Chris Rose and former UFC fighter Kenny Florian to provide play-by-play commentary, along with expert contributions from Pete Abrahamson, a.k.a. The Bot Whisperer, and Faruq Tauheed in the BattleBox as Ring Announcer.

Executive Producer Chris Cowan said “The best team in combat sports are back doing their thing, and the competitive firepower brought to bear by our builders in this year’s quest for the Giant Nut is simply unreal. A more stacked field of contenders has never been assembled. Thursday nights are gonna be a blast, literally!”

The Impact of Infrastructure Failures Is Explored in Two Timely New Projects





FROM THE FRUSTRATING TO THE FATAL – THE IMPACT OF INFRASTRUCTURE FAILURES IS EXPLORED IN TWO TIMELY NEW PROJECTS COVERING THE DEADLY FLORIDA SURFSIDE CONDO DISASTER AND THE GLOBAL SUPPLY CHAIN BREAKDOWN

Discovery Announces a New Special and Limited Series That Examines What Has Gone Wrong

‘WHEN BUILDINGS COLLAPSE: DISASTER IN SURFSIDE’ Premieres Saturday, December 4 at 8 PM ET/PT on Discovery

The Three-Episode Limited Series ‘OUT OF STOCK: SUPPLY CHAIN CRISIS’ Premieres Saturday, December 18 at 8 PM ET/PT on Discovery

(LOS ANGELES) – One revelation from the pandemic has been that systems in place for decades can fail when they are pushed to their limits. The prevalence of empty shelves in stores, and daily news stories about barges with goods stuck offshore highlight a supply chain that can no longer serve the globe. And a catastrophic building disaster in the midst of the pandemic brings to light a variety of dangers – from weather and erosion to outdated construction standards. Discovery explores how critical infrastructure failures can lead to catastrophic disasters, inflation, a lack of necessities and a host of other problems that affect day to day life.

Using startling security footage, 911 calls, eyewitness accounts and CGI technology, Discovery sheds light on what happened during the sudden collapse of the condominium building Champlain Towers South in Surfside, Florida, the possible causes and what can be done to prevent this from ever happening in the future. And in a three-episode limited series, Discovery will pull back the curtain on the complexities of the global supply chain explaining how factors like canal blockages and labor shortages caused by the pandemic have had a domino effect on getting products and food on the shelves and fuel into our cars.

The programming lineup will include –

‘WHEN BUILDINGS COLLAPSE: DISASTER IN SURFSIDE’ Premieres Saturday, December 4 at 8 PM ET/PT on Discovery
On June 24, 2021, at around 1:24am, the Champlain Towers South, a 12-story residential building in Surfside, Florida, collapsed in less than 12 seconds. In the aftermath of this tragedy and with millions of people living in similar apartment complexes across the country, teams of investigators are searching for answers to what went wrong. Through eyewitness accounts, dramatic user-generated footage, news archive and CGI animation, this special pieces together a moment-by-moment account of the disaster, recounts the rescue and recovery efforts and explores factors that could have contributed to the building collapsing. Did a sinkhole cause the collapse? Was the building’s design flawed? Could the constant exposure to the elements or poor maintenance be responsible? Or could this be a perfect storm of issues that caused the collapse?

‘OUT OF STOCK: SUPPLY CHAIN CRISIS’ Premieres Saturday, December 18 at 8 PM ET/PT on Discovery
We have grown accustomed to walking into stores filled with packed shelves, gasoline available at every station and our online purchases arriving on time. But the pandemic has impacted every step of the supply chain, from manufacturing, to shipping worldwide, to transporting within a country, and even to stocking shelves. This limited series explores the complex shipping system at its best and how it has broken down – leaving goods stranded at docks and consumers panic shopping before holiday shortages ruin the upcoming season.
