Paul Gorman's hit reality TV Show "Reload Explode"
moves from 'web series' to Major Network.
The CW picks up "Reload Explode" for Full Season Run.
"Reload Explode" is a television documentary series that goes deep behind the scenes of the professional indoor football team The Erie Explosion.
Developed and produced as a web series to follow the team thru the turmoil of the 2014 Season in the CIFL in which The Erie Explosion would attempt to defend their Championship status.
The show garnered major critical acclaim and quickly became a hit on the web, ammassing huge viewership numbers.
As the show got renewed for it's second season, again following the team - but this time in a new league, it caught the attention of executives of The CW who made a deal to air the first season of the show on The CW beginning in January.
The deal includes a full season run of Season One, along with a 'First Look' option for Season Two beginning in April, 2015. The show will be available in HD over the air, and on all available cable and satelite systems.
Director Paul Gorman will be once again helming the Second Season of "Reload Explode" already in production. Season Two will begin airing in March 2015 and will be available on BoomTV Sports on Roku.

Close Call at Rhett Rotten's "Wall of Death" Stunt Show.
The stunt was simple enough. Motorcycle dare devil Rhett Rotten rides above "Bikefest 2014" Director Paul Gorman during the stunt show.
Using hand signals to communicate the timing, Gorman filmed below Rotten for about a minute, before something went wrong and Rhett Rotten's motorcylce came crashing off the "Wall of Death".
The safety precautions worked though, getting Gorman out of the way moments before the crash.
Both Paul Gorman and Rhett Rotten are unharmed.
