Game Of Arms Preview Video

February 24, 2014 AT 8:20 PM
The television team that got you hooked on watching a crew of crab fishermen come face to face with the routine hazards of their job on Deadliest Catch is hoping to create the same must-watch obligation for the world of professional arm wrestling. (Yes, you read that right. Professional arm wrestling.)AMC's newest unscripted offering, Game of Arms, followsthe members of five regional arm-wrestling clubs to see how they cope with the challenges of competition, training and building a reputation -- as well as their personal relationships and struggles.There hasn't been a whole lot of arm wrestling-based movies or TV shows (with the obvious exception of 1987's Over The Top), so there could very well be a market for this show that no one ever bothered to cater to -- similar to the way Deadliest Catch must've seemed like a huge risk only a few years ago.With any luck, AMC will find themselves sitting on another surprise TV hit that connects with millions of viewers. I don't know about you, but I've often wondered if I could make it as a pro arm wrestler.Game of Arms will premiere February 25thpremieres at 10 p.m./9 p.m. Central on AMC.
