Ready to go chasing rabbits, or to fall into Wonderland? The three members of the "MythBusters" Build Team, Tory Belleci, Kari Byron, and Grant Imahara, have a new show premiering on Netflix next month, and the trailer, released Monday, may give you "MythBusters" flashbacks.

The preview for "White Rabbit Project" advertises it in a way that sounds a bit familiar to fans of the team's old show, writing, "The coolest tech. The weirdest weapons. The craziest escapes. Three science-loving sleuths put them under the microscope." Hey, you had us at "the coolest tech."

The trailer for the unscripted original series goes on to show Belleci, Byron and Imahara risking injury on luge tracks and racetracks, shooting flames and shooting guns. In one episode, it appears that they may be recreating the D.B. Cooper hijacking. In another, they're giving jousting a go.

All episodes of "White Rabbit Project" will be available on Netflix on Dec. 9.
