TruTV (June 28, 2012) Actor/director Dan Cortese (Veronica’s Closet) has chosen to be the host of TruTV‘s brand new series, Guinness World Records Gone Wild that is set to premiere on the network later this year. Filming for the show began June 28, 2012 in Santa Monica, CA and is being produced by High Noon Entertainment (Cake Boss). The premise of the program is to invite guests to take on challenges for a spot in history.
TruTV‘s executive vice president and chief operating officer Marc Juris are confident that Records Gone Wild will be an exciting and entertaining experience for the viewing audience, and Cortese is a fitting host for the program.
“This is an exciting show that really puts you on the edge of your seat while also making you laugh out loud at the crazy things some people will do to break a record. Dan Cortese is the perfect host to bring the excitement and thrills of Guinness World Records ‘Gone Wild’ home to viewers.”
The Guinness World Records have always bewildered readers for years with its almost unbelievable recorded achievements. The show will give viewers a glimpse into how these perplexing feats are attempted and accomplished.
Every episode of Guinness World Records Gone Wild will showcase a variety of guests hoping to obtain a space in the famous archive, and outdo previous set records. Some examples of records up for attempted shattering are: the amount of panes of glass to be broken by running through them, the maximum amount of kicks that can be delivered to a human head in one minute, and the maximum amount of people that can be crammed into a small car–clown style. Guinness World Record officials will be monitoring each aim to see if a new record has been set.
Commentary during each episode will be provided by actor/musician Zack Selwyn (Battleship) and Liz Smith, a representative of Guinness World Records. Stuart Claxton will serve as the show’s primary judge.
Pamely Healy, Jim Berger and Andrew Golder are the executive producers of the program from High Noon Entertainment, and Rob Molloy is an executive producer assigned by Guinness World Records. Adam Dolgins is the executive in charge of production for truTV, while Angel Annussek serves as the executive producer for the network, and Jim Pasquarella is the coordinating producer.
