London-based Twofour has been tapped to produce factual series The Body Shocking Show for UK digital channel E4.
Presented by comedian and magician Pete Firman and actor and model Jessica-Jane Clement, the 8 x 30-minute series will examine stories of people doing bizarre things to their bodies. Guests include actor Verne Troyer, Dead or Alive singer Pete Burns, and Sylvester Stallone’s mother Jackie.
“The Body Shocking Show is a smorgasbord of weird and wonderful, and a celebration of the people who love to push boundaries,” said Juliet Rice, head of factual entertainment at Twofour. “Be prepared to watch through your fingers at times.”
Channel 4 commissioning editor Kate Teckman added: “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.”
