What do you get when you put John Noble together with whacked-out experiments? OK, aside from FRINGE?
The Science Channel and Noble have hooked up to host Dark Matters — a show about the most unsual scientific research known to man — including head transplantation studies, human-animal breeding, zombie investigations, reanimation. REANIMATION?
Head below for the official details and preview videos.
“The stories we share in Dark Matters are as outlandish as a great sci-fi script or as disturbing as a classic horror tale — the only difference is that they’re all true,” Noble said. “The series offers a glimpse into the dark side of science, as well as human nature.”
The show will use CGI to bring to life some of history’s most unethical experiements:
“Dark Matters offers a fascinating insight into moments of scientific history where individuals went to extreme measures to achieve a breakthrough,” said Debbie Adler Myers, general manager and executive vp of Science. “It’s impossible to turn away from these true stories that you always assumed were just outlandish urban legends. This is real science — just the dark side of it, featuring brilliant minds who eventually took a dramatic turn. John Noble is the perfect tour guide to escort viewers through this sordid world of research gone horribly wrong, but in some cases, led us the technology and science that we enjoy today.”

Dark Matters will initially experiment with six episodes debuting Aug 31 at 10PM
