Discovery Channel’s “Mythbusters” films in Moab
MOAB — The U.S. Bureau of Land Management has given the science- and thrill-based television show “Mythbusters” permission to film an upcoming episode in Utah’s Desolation Canyon.
Officials for the popular show on the Discovery Channel won’t discuss the “myth” they are out to prove or bust. But the Deseret News reports (http://tinyurl.com/btj8nps ) that BLM documents indicate the project will involve duct tape and bubble wrap.
The canyon-versus-man episode is expected to showcase the rugged terrain of the Desolation Canyon Wilderness Study Area, complete with rollicking romps along the Colorado and Green rivers.
Lisa Bryant, acting field manager for the BLM in Moab, says the filming is planned at eight locations over 10 days. The permit signed Friday allows activities otherwise prohibited in a wilderness study area.
