A new unscripted series on TruTV (formerly Court TV)
will attempt to uncover whether the stunts and shenanigans in cartoons
could ever actually happen in the real world.

Six hourlong episodes have been ordered from Warner Horizon and Craig
Piligian's Pilgrim Films & Television, and will draw upon Warner Bros.
huge library of animation.

In keeping with the network's investigation-themed lineup of shows, the
project will look into whether it's possible to build a human slingshot,
for example.

"As you know, we have a lot of investigative programming on the air, and
we thought this was a really interesting way to show the process of
investigation," TruTV executive VP and GM Marc Juris told THE HOLLYWOOD
REPORTER. "We'll see if these things are scientifically possible and, if
so, how we can use this information."
