Ripley's Aquarium in Gatlinburg to serve as a home base for all-new NBC show 'Earth Odyssey'

The nature and wildlife show is hosted by NBC News meteorologist Dylan Dreyer and runs Saturday mornings.

GATLINBURG, Tenn. — Ripley's Aquariums' three locations in Gatlinburg, Myrtle Beach and Toronto will soon be featured as home bases for a new NBC show airing Saturday mornings. 

'Earth Odyssey with Dylan Dreyer' is hosted by the NBC News meteorologist and Today Show contributor and has premiered on NBC's 'The More You Know' block on Saturday mornings.

Each week the three aquariums will serve as a home base to bring audiences face-to-face with fascinating native animals, and educate teen viewers and families with facts about nature and wildlife.

The Ripley's Aquariums will also be showcased for exhibits such as the 'Behind-the-Scenes' tour, Planet Jellies, and its 'Dangerous Lagoon' exhibit.

“We are beyond excited to be working with Litton Entertainment to bring the beautiful world of Ripley’s Aquariums to NBC with the all-new show, Earth Odyssey with Dylan Dreyer,” says Amanda Joiner, Vice President of Licensing and Publishing for Ripley Entertainment. “Fun, educational experiences that the whole family enjoys are at the heart of what we do, and Earth Odyssey brings that same passion for family-friendly entertainment to this remarkable new television show."

You can catch the show on WBIR Channel 10 at 10:30 a.m. Saturday.
