The 3D joint venture from Discovery Communications, Sony Corp. and IMAX Corp. is adding six new titles to its programming slate.

The show, all produced in native 3D, include original series and acquisitions, and join previously announced programming for the network, which is expected to launch in early 2011.

The original series are Bullproof (working title), High Octane (working title) and Making the Brand (working title). Bullproof, from Wild Eyes Productions and Digital Revolution Studios, follows the daredevil world of professional bull riding. High Octane, from Electric Sky Productions, explores the worlds of motocross, jet-skiing rock-climbing and other extreme action sports. Making the Brand, also from Electric Sky Productions, will bring to life to processes by which products are produced on a mass scale.

The programs that will make their U.S. premieres on the new network are Discovery's Ghost Lab, Sony Pictures' Open Season and IMAX's Space Station.

Long-running Discovery Channel series Ghost Lab follows Brad and Barry Klinge as they travel the U.S. gathering paranormal research. Open Season, the first feature-length film from Sony Pictures Animation, is about a domesticated grizzly bear and a wild mule deer. Space Station, narrated by Tom Cruise, takes viewers 220 miles above the Earth to explore the engineering feat of the International Space Station.
