“Late Night” host Jimmy Fallon is behind “That’s a Record,” a new gameshow pilot for NBC.
Hosted by G4’s Chris Hardwick, show is based on the Universal Record Database, a website that chronicles users’ attempts at some unusual world records.
Among the records featured on URDB.com: The fastest time to knock three plastic forks off a counter using your nose; the fastest time to blow a whistle at a potholder 10 times; and the fastest time to put on three shirts while balancing on another person’s shoulders.
Fallon has included URDB stunts on past editions of “Late Night,” inspiring the “That’s a Record” pilot.
3 Ball Prods. (“The Biggest Loser”) is behind “That’s a Record,” along with Fallon. Pilot shot on Thursday in Simi Valley.
Busy Hardwick hosts “Web Soup” for G4 and is a regular contributor to “Attack of the Show.” He also just shot the Comedy Central pilot “Tonight’s Funniest.”
His other credits include “Singled Out,” as well as various acting and radio gigs.
