John Noble to explore fringe research in freaky new Science Channel show -- EXCLUSIVE
by James Hibberd

How perfect is this: Science Channel is teaming with Fringe star John Noble to host a show about, yup, real-life bizarre experiments.

In Dark Matters, Noble explores the most unusual scientific research ever conducted — including head transplantation studies, actual zombie investigations (!) and attempts to cross-breed humans and those damn dirty apes (trailer below).

“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 reenactments and CGI to tell the true stories of sometimes ethically challenged experiments throughout history.

“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 has an initial series order of six episodes and debuts Aug. 31 at 10 p.m.

And, hello, here’s a preview:

Oh what, nobody asked the only actor NOT WORKING if he wanted the gig?

Who or what are you talking about?

Oh, yes it's you. The wacko 'Pacey' lover who thinks Joshua Jackson is getting the shaft.

You don't know anything. Get back on your meds, find a corner, lie down, curl up and knock yourself out. PLEASE!
