Hosted by Miranda Cosgrove
CBS announced today that the returning lineup for the fall season of CBS DREAM TEAM will include new episodes of LUCKY DOG, THE HENRY FORD’S INNOVATION NATION, MISSION UNSTOPPABLE and HOPE IN THE WILD. New episodes will premiere Saturday, Oct. 2 (9:00 AM-12:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. The CBS DREAM TEAM Saturday morning lineup is a diverse, family-friendly schedule featuring compelling shows and stories of hope and compassion designed to enlighten, teach and inspire viewers to make a greater commitment to themselves, their families and their communities.
Eric and Rashi Khanna Weise will continue the mission of LUCKY DOG, to unite shelter dogs with their new families. Eric takes viewers on a journey of rescuing previously hard-to-love, out-of-control, untrained dogs and making their futures bright. At Eric’s training facility, with the help of his wife, Rashi, he embarks on the seemingly impossible task of turning rescues into loving pets, with sound training methods that viewers can use at home to train their own dogs. In the end, a lucky family will adopt an even luckier dog.
THE HENRY FORD’S INNOVATION NATION, hosted by Mo Rocca of CBS SUNDAY
MORNING and recipient of its third Daytime Emmy Award in 2020, will continue to tell inspiring stories of life-changing innovation – from historic scientific pioneers throughout past centuries, to the forward-looking visionaries of today. Each episode tells the dramatic stories behind the world’s greatest inventions – and the perseverance, passion and price required to bring them to life. Upcoming stories this season include high-tech drones, used to find and capture giant pythons that have become an invasive species in the Florida Everglades, and an inventor who has created a device to translate the meaning of your dog’s bark.
MISSION UNSTOPPABLE, hosted by Miranda Cosgrove and a team of traveling correspondents, showcases incredible women on the cutting edge of science and technology, including roboticists, zoologists, engineers, astronauts, physicists, mathematicians, archaeologists, astrophysicists, mechanical engineers, codebreakers and oceanographers. Young viewers can find inspiration through female STEM superstars in leading fields, such as social media, entertainment, animals, design and the internet – all categories that are key to the teen experience. New stories will include a scientist developing a portable lab that detects toxins, bacteria and viruses that fits in a carrying case, and a biochemist on a mission to create new bioplastics that dissolve in water quickly and are non-toxic to people, fish and the environment.
HOPE IN THE WILD follows Hope Swinimer, a wildlife rehabilitation expert, and her dedicated team as they rescue and heal injured and orphaned animals of all kinds. Hope’s passion for wildlife conservation shines through everything she does to lead her team on their mission to care for and return each animal to the wild. From the pressure of saving an animal in critical condition, to the joy in witnessing its victorious return home, HOPE IN THE WILD educates viewers on the day-to-day jobs of this animal care team and the species they encounter.
PET VET DREAM TEAM chronicles the lives of some of the world’s busiest emergency veterinarians and the animals to whom they’ve dedicated their lives. Together, these talented veterinarians race against the clock to cure their furry and feathered charges – educating viewers on a range of medical procedures and exotic animal practices along the way. As viewers catch a behind-the-scenes look at the veterinary profession, they also learn responsibility and empathy for animals of all kinds through the passionate work of the PET VET DREAM TEAM.
