G4 has ordered a spinoff of its flagship series Attack of the Show, where two hosts will conduct wacky science experiments. It's Effin' Science started as a segment on the Show (hosted by the red-hot Olivia Munn and some guy named Kevin Pereira) and is now getting a 10-episode series order.

In each episode, comedian hosts Angie Greenup and Marc Horowitz, along with engineer Chad Zdenek, set out to push the boundaries of amateur experimentation. Topics include trying to build a hoverboard a la Back to the Future II, blasting a Port-a-Potty 100 feet into the air and trying to construct homemade night-vision goggles.

The series takes the tried-and-true Show format of having male-female co-hosts explore fast-paced geek-friendly topics and marries it with some Mythbusters-style science experimentation.

Greenup is a stand-up comic who worked on sites such as Fearnet.com, while Horowitz has worked with MTV and E!

It's Effin' Science is produced by Renegade and debuts June 15 following G4's live E3 coverage.
