Under an agreement between the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office and Beyond Productions, the company that produces the popular science show, the MythBusters team will no longer conduct cannonball experiments at the Training Center and will limit their filming to those activities that the Training Center is accustomed to handling, such as the use of the firing range, vehicle track,
and the explosives detonation area.
“MythBusters has been a long standing partner of the Sheriff’s Office having conducted more than 40 experiments at our facility over the last 4 years,” said Alameda County Sheriff Gregory Ahern. “We are confident that the proposed changes to our long-standing partnership will address the concerns raised by members of the Dublin community, as well as reinforce our continued strong working relationship with the .”
“We take the safety of our experiments very seriously,” said Dan Tapster, Executive Producer of MythBusters. “We believe that the changes we are making to our arrangement with the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office will reassure the Dublin community of our commitment to safety.”
MythBusters is expected to return back to the Training Center in late summer where they will sporadically film parts of their 10th season.
