Killer jellyfish, ghost towns, and a cartoon weathergirl will be among the stars of a new 3D TV network under development by Discovery Communications Inc, Sony Corp, and Imax Corp, the companies said.
10 series and specials were included in a look at the 3D TV network’s schedule, programming that revolved around natural history, exploration and children shows. The network is due to launch in 2011. Shows announced included “Attack of the Giant Jellyfish;” “Abandoned Planet,” a series that looks at deserted cities; “Jewels of the World,” a series that explores spots such as the Grand Canyon and Machu Picchu; “Into the Deep 3D,” an undersea Imax special; and “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,”. 3D TV set sales are looking to boom in the next 12 months with manufacturers like Samsung, Sony, Panasonic and LG all rolling out sets. Sports broadcasters like ESPN launched its first 3D channel during this year’s soccer World Cup.
