Jump City: Seattle Premieres on G4 in February!

In our new show, Jump City: Seattle, G4 is looking for the ultimate Parkour team. The first-ever Parkour championship competition series premieres Tuesday, February 15th at 8 p.m. ET/PT on G4.

Hosted by G4’s Blair Herter and Parkour veteran Brady Romberg, Jump City: Seattle will feature established Parkour athletes -- such as Levi Meeuwenberg and Brian Orosco (from G4’s American Ninja Warrior), who will use their dexterity, speed, skill and every manner of mobility possible to navigate Seattle’s urban landscape.  The four teams comprising the series -- Miami Freerunning, The Tribe, Tempest Freerunning and Team Rogue -- will run, climb, vault, balance, leap, ground roll and precision jump their way through the competition.

“Parkour has become the latest in the ever growing trend of alternative sports, bringing legions of fans to this discipline,” said Neal Tiles, President, G4.  “G4’s history of success with extreme sport shows such as ‘Ninja Warrior’ and ‘Unbeatable Banzuke,’ makes ‘Jump City’ the next evolution of this increasing phenomenon

Each episode features two teams competing in a speed and a style round, with three of the four members of each team participating. The speed round is set up as a relay through a predetermined course, and the team with the fastest time prevails. In the style round, each team member is given 45 seconds to perform a routine anywhere on the course and is judged on their creativity, difficulty and execution.  The team with the highest combined score wins the round. Over the course of the season, all teams will compete against the other once in regular competition.  The team with the most wins will move on to the finals, and the team with the least wins goes home.  The other two teams compete in the semi finals with the winner going to the finals.
