G4 orders 'Soup' with Chris Hardwick

G4 has ordered a Web-centric spinoff of popular E! series "The Soup."

The new series, "Web Soup," features comedian Chris Hardwick ("Attack of the Show") showing viewers the best and worst moments in online video. Each episode is broken into segments with such titles as "This Week in FAIL" and "Things You Can't Un-See."

Chrishardwickheadshot"G4 viewers are Web-obsessed, and this show brings the Internet to television in a way that's edgy and fun," G4 president Neal Tiles said.

"Web Soup" debuts June 7. It's from the producers of fellow Comcast-owned network E!'s "The Soup," a revival of "Talk Soup," which launched in 1991. "Web Soup" executive producers include Edward Boyd, K.P. Anderson, Boyd Vico and Brad Stevens.

G4 also is renewing its series "Human Wrecking Balls" for a second season, ordering 10 additional episodes. The show features Craig and Paul Pumphrey smashing anything from airplanes to homes with their bare hands while racking up world records.

"Wrecking" is executive produced by John Brenkus and Mickey Stern of Base Prods. The up-and-coming Base has two other premieres this month: "Jesse James Is a Dead Man" on SpikeTV and the Season 2 premiere of "Crime 360" on A&E.
