The television series, MythBusters, will resume filming occasional experiments at the Alameda County Sheriff’s Training Center in Dublin, Calif., following the December 2011 cannonball incident.
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.
The producers have agreed tol only film scenes involving the use of the firing range, vehicle track, explosives detonation area and other routine activities.
“We are confident that the proposed changes to our long-standing partnership will address the concerns raised by members of the Dublin community," said Alameda County Sheriff Gregory Ahern.
MythBusters is expected to return back to the Training Center in late summer where they will sporadically film parts of their 10th season.
“We take the safety of our experiments very seriously,” said Dan Tapster, Executive Producer of MythBusters. “We believe that the changes we are making . . . will reassure the Dublin community of our commitment to safety.”
