British broadcaster Channel 5, set to be acquired by U.S. media giant Viacom, has ordered the six-part series Angry Britain from Mentorn Media.

Each hour-long episode of the user-generated content series will focus on the story behind an extremely angry moment caught on video, including examples of road rage, a holiday meltdown and public transit fights. The series includes interviews with perpetrators, victims, witnesses and experts who will “highlight all aspects of Britain’s angry and incensed individuals,” the company said in a statement.

Angry Britain combines the best of rubbernecking television,” said Michelle Chappell, C5′s commissioning editor for factual, news and current affairs, in a statement. “We have all witnessed people losing it in public and this series will show those moments and unpack why Brits who traditionally kept a stiff upper lip are increasingly flying off the handle.”

The series is due to air later in the year and will be shopped internationally by Passion Distribution.
