What’s Coming to discovery+ in August 2022, Including ‘Contraption Masters,’ ‘Menendez Brothers: Misjudged?’
In the new competition series “Contraption Masters” amateur tinkerers create chain-reaction machines — with the winning entry exhibited in a museum. The discovery+ catch? The machines are given an easy challenge, but must produce results in the most elaborate ways. It’s a chance to showcase tech skills and engineering feats. Hosted by Richard Hammond, the series begins streaming on Aug. 7.
Check out a preview for “Contraption Masters”:
Also coming to the streaming service on Aug. 7 is a true-crime story 30 years in the making. For many onlookers, with modern sensibilities, the case of Erik and Lyle Menendez — who were found guilty of murdering their parents in 1989 — looks much more like victims fighting against parental abuse than sibling greed. “Menendez Brothers: Misjudged?” re-examines the case and considers how media obsession might have prejudged the entire situation.
