The Countdown Begins in October On truTV's New Series TOP 20 MOST SHOCKING
Of all the extreme college pranks, harrowing escapes from death, and brainless stunts captured on video, which one is the very best? truTV sets out to answer that question with its newest original series: TOP 20 MOST SHOCKING. Building on the success of truTV's pulse-pounding hit series MOST SHOCKING, this new series ramps up the stakes, introducing a weekly countdown of the 20 best, all new, caught-on-tape moments that will leave no jaw un-dropped.
From "Women Out of Control" to "Whackos at the Wheel," each hour-long episode of TOP 20 MOST SHOCKING showcases a unique theme, with more than 20 clips combined with dramatic firsthand accounts, all working their way to claim the top spot in the countdown. The premiere episode will spotlight "Good Times Gone Bad," with subsequent episodes featuring such crowd-pleasing themes as "Practical Jokers Gone Wild," "Brainless Blunders" and "Hotheads from Hell."
TOP 20 MOST SHOCKING premieres Saturday, Oct. 3, at 8 p.m. (ET). It is the third series created by Bruce Nash Entertainment for truTV, following MOST SHOCKING, which features unbelievable, real-life crime footage from around the globe, and MOST DARING, a full hour of compelling eyewitness narratives by ordinary people facing extraordinary danger. Bruce Nash, Debra Weeks, Andrew Jebb and Matt Harris serve as executive producers on all three shows. For truTV, Robyn Hutt is executive in charge of production, and Diane Best is executive producer.
