There’s always plenty of surprises, who-knew and they-said-what moments during the parade of TV show panels at the Television Critics Assn. press tour. Day two of the summer tour that runs through Aug. 9 featured presentations from Discovery Channel, Science Channel, Animal Planet, Investigation Discovery, Espn and HBO.

Here are five things we learned from Wednesday’s sessions:

The multipart series targeted to debut next year is dubbed “Don’t Stop the Presses.”
