SILVER SPRING, MD — After the success of the network's breakout hit "Oddities," Science moves its popular franchise to the West Coast with the world premiere of "Oddities: San Francisco." Science expands its empire of the eccentric to the epicenter of all things strange at San Francisco's famed Haight Street. There at the infamous antiques shop, Loved to Death, the cabinets of curiosities overflow with bizarre taxidermy, memento Mori Jewelry and art pieces that epitomize the macabre and mysterious. Science kicks off a summer of new shows with the world premiere of the all-new six-part series, "Oddities: San Francisco" on Saturday, June 23 at 9PM (ET/PT).

"At Science, one of our goals has been to 'own weird' — and in the process, 'Oddities' has become a cornerstone franchise for the network," said Debbie Adler Myers, general manager and executive vice president for Science. "Viewers were vocal that they wanted more access into this signature subculture, so we're going to give it to them. We're taking the genre to the next level by introducing an entirely new look into this fascinating and hugely entertaining world. 'Oddities' fans are going to love 'Oddities: San Francisco.'"



Guided by Loved to Death store owner Audra, and sales associates Wednesday and Korri, audiences will meet wonderfully weird characters with wacky items to sell and even stranger tales to tell. From human tooth jewelry, Odd Fellows' hoodwinks, antique resuscitation valves, Victorian tear catchers, and beyond, there's something uncommon for everyone available at this unconventional establishment. Featuring six all-new episodes, "Oddities: San Francisco" airs Saturdays this summer beginning June 23 at 9PM (ET/PT).

"Oddities: San Francisco" and "Oddities" are produced for Science by Leftfield Pictures. Brent Montgomery, David George and Shawn Witt are executive producers for Leftfield Pictures. At Science, Bernadette McDaid is vice president of production, McDaid and Josh Berkley are executive producers and Lindsey Foster is producer.
