JURASSIC FIGHT CLUB
Premiering Tuesday, July 29 at 9pm ET/PT on History
Groundbreaking Forensic Evidence Leads to Breakthrough Discoveries in Understanding How Dinosaurs Battled for Supremacy
New York, June 23, 2008 - A dinosaur’s life was not easy. Volatile pre-historic terrain, harsh climate conditions, insufficient food and water, as well as unrelenting enemy predators made survival anything but a given. With cutting edge forensics leading to new discoveries every day, researchers are gaining remarkable insight into the psychology and physiology of these ancient beasts. The new series JURASSIC FIGHT CLUB, premiering on History™, Tuesday, July 29 at 9pm ET/PT, brings the history of dinosaurs and their epic encounters to life like never before seen with astonishing CGI, illustrating the characteristics that made some the hunters and others the game.
The latest tested evidence suggests that our planet’s first fighters were more than just brutes. CAT scans of fossils allow us to peer inside the bodies and minds of dinosaurs giving clues to their behavior, thought process, ability to strategize and work in groups, as well as their vision. It is even believed that Raptors possessed night vision.
How dinosaurs lived and how they fought has never been clearer. Leading scientists and experts, offer play-by-play commentary to battles that occurred 70 million years ago and CGI imagery depicts the ancient beasts sizing up their opponents and flexing their prehistoric muscles. Jurassic Fight Club illustrates in fantastic detail the crucial evidence found and the scientific research conducted, illuminating the possible motivations for engaging in combat.
Each episode showcases thrilling dinosaur confrontations, all of which are based on recent paleontological findings. There is a potential mating situation between two Majungatholous that went awry; a gang of Raptors that stalked and killed a large herbivore; a pair of Ceratosaurus who ambushed a Allosaurus but soon discovered they were on the defense; a Nanotyrannus, a mini-version of the Tyrannosaurus Rex, invaded a nesting area where two juveniles had been left on their own while their parents were on the trail for fresh meat; and more.
JURASSIC FIGHT CLUB Executive Producer for History is Dolores Gavin, and is produced for History by 1080 Inc. Productions.
