The daring and fearless world of record-breaking is set to hit US TV screens with a new weekly show starting next month on Tru TV.

Hosted by television personality Dan Cortese (Veronica's Closet, Surviving Suburbia, MTV Sports), truTV's Guinness World Records Gone Wild will feature brave and courageous record hopefuls as they attempt to secure their place in history by breaking some truly outrageous world records.

For years, Guinness World Records have delighted, astonished and amazed readers with its book of incredible achievements.

Now in Guinness World Records Gone Wild, the curtain will be drawn back to reveal what really goes on when the most unbelievable, jaw-dropping records are attempted.

Among the records the show will set out to break are the Most panes of glass run through in one minute, Fastest time to jump over three oncoming cars, Highest dive into 12 inches of water, Most kicks to the head in one minute, Most live cockroaches held in the mouth and the Most arrows caught while blindfolded, to name a few.

Each attempt will be evaluated by Guinness World Records officials, who have the final say over whether a record is broken.

In addition to host Dan Cortese, Guinness World Records Gone Wild will feature Stuart Claxton, the show's primary Guinness World Records adjudicator. Liz Smith, also of Guinness World Records, and actor/musician Zach Selwyn (Greek, Battleship) will provide commentary on the action.

The series is set to premiere on Thursday, Feb. 7, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT).
