G4 has ordered a new reality show inspired by the Oscar-winning film The Hurt Locker, the network announced Tuesday.
Bomb Patrol: Afghanistan will follow a bomb-disposal squad and take viewers behind the scenes from training sessions to deployment overseas.
"There is simply no way to comprehend the incredible amount of pressure and split-second decision-making these individuals must undertake in the worst possible physical conditions without riding along with them as our cameras will do," G4 President Neal Tiles said. "This is a rare opportunity to showcase the work of the courageous men and women on the front lines and share with our viewers all the real-life drama, teamwork, danger and triumph that goes along with this specialized job."
The series will premiere come spring 2011.
