[via press release from G4]


Los Angeles, CA, August 6, 2010 - If you've ever wondered whose military special forces are the toughest, which mountain is the most unforgiving to climb or who is the most fearless bank robber ever, then "That's Tough!" is a show you won't want to miss. Taking viewers around the globe, each episode of the new series will count down the top three "toughest" in a broad spectrum of categories, ranging from dangerous prisons to crack sniper units to deadliest blades to top secret mega vaults. Produced by Super Delicious ("Manswers," "Cupcake Wars"), the eight-episode, half-hour series will premiere Wednesday, October 20 at 8:30pm on G4.

"It's no secret that guys love to debate what the biggest, baddest, strongest is of everything," said Neal Tiles, President, G4. "This series sets the record straight once and for all in a way that's edgy, irreverent and fun."

In "That's Tough!," viewers will experience extreme places, people and situations as the series provides a treasure trove of solid facts along with contextual information, on-location footage and graphic visuals that bring each subject to life. Each episode will include a dramatic top three countdown of the selected category - ultimately building to the climactic reveal of what is, in fact, the world's "toughest." The series will leave viewers with compelling takeaways, surprising stats and plenty of fun conversation fodder.

"That's Tough!" is produced by Super Delicious, LLC, with Cara Tapper, Adam Cohen and Joanna Vernetti serving as Executive Producers. Laura Civiello and Darren Wadyko will serve as the series' network executives for G4.
