E4 commissions The Body Shocking Show
Twofour has been commissioned to produce outrageous 8 x 30' series, The Body Shocking Show, for E4.
The series will be fronted by presenter, comedian and magician Pete Firman (The Magicians), and actress, model and presenter Jessica-Jane Clement (The Real Hustle).
The programme will marvel at the outrageous and extraordinary people who have done bizarre things with their bodies. Jessica-Jane and Pete will be joined by Hollywood's Verne Troyer, Dead or Alive legend Pete Burns, and Jackie Stallone.
From unthinkably outrageous bodies to the world's strangest body-related fetishes, the series will be an eye watering celebration of the extreme.
Juliet Rice, Head of Factual Entertainment at Twofour, said: "The Body Shocking Show is a smorgasbord of weird and wonderful and a celebration of the people who love to push boundaries. Be prepared to watch through your fingers at times!"
Channel 4 Commissioning Editor, Kate Teckman, said: "The Body Shocking Show's unflinching and irreverent approach to the extraordinary actions of people around the globe promises to truly amaze viewers. From extreme body piercings to people who have their nipples and belly buttons removed for reasons only known to themselves - only a fool would miss it."
The commission follows the success of Twofour's World's Greatest Body Shockers for E4. The series is executive produced by Juliet Rice and was commissioned by Channel 4 Head of Formats Dominic Bird and Features Commissioning Editor Kate Teckman.
