Hollywood, Calif. -- The best of today's inventors will be featured in a new
original series on TechTV set to debut this fall.
The series, Invent This!, will highlight the country's most innovative
and fascinating inventors, as well as their unique inventions, the network said
Monday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour here.
The series -- along with TechTV's new late-night talk show, Unscrewed with
Martin Sargent, which debuted this past May and features some of the unique
characters behind popular Web sites -- continued the network's aggressive move
toward more entertainment-based original series and specials.
Since May, TechTV has debuted seven new shows -- including Wired for
Sex and Anime Unleashed -- that the network hopes will help to expand
its audience beyond hard-core technology enthusiasts.
"We are excited about serving an audience with a completely different
attitude toward technology," TechTV executive vice president of programming and
production Greg Brannan said. "Entertainment and recreation is at the center of
their tech priorities."
