MYTHBUSTERS5 320Entertainment Weekly reports that the Discovery Channel is working on a documentary of Steve Jobs to be shown on Sunday, Oct. 16 at 8 p.m. The documentary will be hosted by Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman of Mythbusters.

“Someone once said that to follow the path that others have laid before you is a very reasonable course of action, therefore all progress is made by unreasonable men,” Savage said. “Steve Jobs was an unreasonable man. He didn’t simply give the public what they wanted, he defined entirely new ways of thinking about our lives in the digital space: productivity, creativity, music, communication, media and art. He has touched, directly and indirectly, all of our lives.”

The one hour special has reportedly lined up a number of interviews with early figures in Jobs' life.

Of all the people in the world to host a doco on Jobs, I'd never have picked Adam and Jamie. That's a very strange choice indeed.

My understanding is they both use Macs, and Adam Savage has for 20 or so years.

Is the Discovery channel using hosts of their post popular show to increase ratings. They want more viewers... only reason they're there.
Man, a TV channel wanting people to watch its shows. What a despicable bunch.
