National Geographic Channel (NGC) in U.S. is debuting a new popular science series combining the quiz element with surprising stunts.

None of the Above, premiering on March 24, features host Tim Shaw (pictured) taking to the streets to challenge people to predict the correct outcomes of various experiments that bring to light various laws of physics and engineering. Shaw also hosts the series Car SOS for National Geographic Channels International.

According to the network, viewers will be treated to such stunts as seeing helicopters landing on eggs without breaking a shell, a single vacuum cleaner holding a car in the air, and other feats.

None of the Above, which made its UK premiere on NGC in February, makes its American debut just before the premiere of another new NGC series, the recently announced The Numbers Game, at 9 p.m. EST/PST.

The series is produced by UK prodco Renegade Pictures, with Alan Hayling as executive producer for the company. For National Geographic Channels International, Hannah Demidowicz is exec producer, and for NGC U.S., JC Mills and Michael Kovnat are exec producers.
