G4 to Roll Out Human Wrecking BallsBrothers Craig, Paul Pumphrey to 'demolish everything' in new G4 series. 8/14/2008 02:24:00 AM Eastern
Brothers Craig and Paul Pumphrey will become Human Wrecking Balls on a new G4 series set to debut this fall.
The Pumphrey brothers will “demolish everything from boats and cars to houses and bars using only their bare hands,” the Comcast-owned network said in a statement.
Craig is a decorated police officer and world champion mixed martial artist, while Paul is a construction worker and has been twice crowned “World Creative Breaking Champion,” once after breaking through six-feet of ice, the network added.
G4 continued, “For each challenge, they join forces with a team of experts in material science and engineering to review the object of their destruction from every possible angle before taking it apart, using physics and know-how to determine the most effective approach.”
"Guys seem to have an innate fascination with watching demolition," G4 president Neal Tiles said in a statement. "Add to this the science behind it and the idea of two brothers doing all of the demolition physically, and we think Human Wrecking Balls is an excellent addition to our programming lineup."
Human Wrecking Balls was developed by BASE Productions with John Brenkus, Mickey Stern and Rob Dorfmann, who will serve as executive producers. Jason King is the series’ producer and director.
