JCG Korea and Alpha Channel in Italy both picked up the brand-new clip show Whacked Out Sports, which features professional and amateur sports mishaps, crashes and bloopers from around the globe. Game TV in Canada, meanwhile, acquired Bloopers, hosted by Dean Cain.

Africa XP picked up six stunt and clip titles, including Camp Stew, hosted by Penn Jillette and showcasing some of the craziest outdoor videos ever recorded. Outdoor Outtakes features bloopers and outdoor mishaps, while Now See This consists of 52 half-hours of interesting stories that have been caught on tape in formatted segments. Stuntmasters celebrates the danger-filled world of stunt workers, while Next Action Star follows a search for America’s next male and female action stars. The winners, chosen through competition and voting, will star in Bet Your Life, an action film with Billy Zane. There is also World’s Wackiest Sports, which takes viewers along on a ride with three young, competitive friends who find the craziest competitions and hilarious sports from around the world and then recreate difficult challenges.

Michael Lolato, the senior VP of international distribution at GRB Entertainment, said, “GRB Entertainment was founded on action and stunt programming and we are proud to continue delivering the best, most daring programs around the globe. Our newest clip show, Whacked Out Sports, takes the best of sports and stunts-gone-wrong and combines them into a hilarious and cringe-worthy half hour.”
