Discovery Channel has unveiled a lineup of new reality shows featuring subject matter as diverse as drugs, cars, guns and dinosaurs, Multichannel News reports.

During its presentation Friday at the Television Critics Association press tour, the cable channel revealed plans for “Dinosaur Revolution,” “Carfellas,” “Gunsmoke,” “Penn & Teller Tell a Lie” and “Weed Wars.”

The story reports: “In September, the network will premiere ‘Dinosaur Revolution,’ a four-part series that looks at the strange behaviors of prehistoric creatures through paleontological research, cutting-edge animation and storytelling, said network officials.”

Set for an October premiere is “Carfellas,” which “focuses on the used car business through the eyes of reformed convict Mikey D. and his crew, Tommie and Mario of Broadway Motors in Amityville,” the story says.

“Gunsmoke,” set in a Colorado gun shop, also bows in October.

Set to launch in November is “Weed Wars,” which tracks the goings-on at Harborside Health Center in Oakland, Calif., the nation’s largest dispensary of medicinal marijuana.

The story adds: “Magicians Penn & Teller will join Discovery for a new show, ‘Penn & Teller Tell A Lie,’ which will feature up to seven stories told through visual stunts, the network said.”

  1. Wonderfully pathetic. The best part–“normal” dinosaurs aren’t good enough anymore, we now get “strange” dinosaurs. Shows in development:
    Dinosaur Cops
    Dinosaur Housewives
    Dinosaur Shore
