It's obviously a huge joke, but that's why everyone loves it.
No one expected the original Sharknado to be much more than a laugh, but its sequel Sharknado 2: The Second One was an even bigger hit. Now Syfy has released Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No, and there's also news that star Ian Ziering will be back for a fourth romp next year.
'Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No' comin' atcha!
The actor, who rose to fame in the 1990s in Beverly Hills 90210, knows that these films are a joke. "It's over the top, but it's over the top in a great way, and I've stopped questioning it," he says. "These movies are not intended for overthinkers, but they've really captured the imagination of sci-fi fans. Sharknado 2 generated such a shockwave that it reverberated over a billion Twitter impressions around the world. It was all top 10 trending topics on Twitter at the same time! Nowhere in any parallel universe did I ever think that would happen in my career."

It's finally here! There's been a lot of hype around the video for True Survivor and you can now watch it in full. The track is part of David Sandberg's 30 minute film Kung Fury. David Hasselhoff was -unsurprisingly - 'honoured' to be part of this homage to the 80's.
The 'Knight Rider' star returns to what he does best.
In recent years, 80s action hero David Hasselhoff has been well known to get involved with a variety of quirky, independent projects - but his latest music video, 'True Survivor', may just be his most unique - not to mention most eccentric - yet.
David Hasselhoff stars in short film 'Kung Fury'
The Hoff returns to his homeland of early computer graphics, cheesy storylines and epic action stories with a new 80s-inspired short film called 'Kung Fury'. Filmed in Sweden by talented up-and-coming animator David Sandberg, it features a new song from Hasselhoff, 'True Survivor' composed by Mitch Murder, alongside an epic music video.
'Baywatch' legend David Hasselhoff has unveiled a video for his new single 'True Survivor', the lead song from the upcoming short movie 'Kung Fury'. The video is an over-the-top sci-fi /action / superhero montage.
The third instalment in the 'Sharknado' franchise will feature a star packed guest cast.
SyFy has just announced a title and premiere date for the third instalment in the Sharknado franchise, which will be terrorising our screens again this summer. Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No will be coming at us via the cable network on July 22nd, as this time disaster hits Washington D.C. in the two hour made for t.v. movie.
Once again Tara Reid will be back in her role as April while Ian Ziering will also be returning as hero of the day Fin Shepard. Cassie Scerbo, who did not return for Sharknado 2: The Second One, has also been confirmed as coming back, as Nova a bartender who sets her sights on Fin.
It's not Baywatch! It is Baywatch though.
We’ll admit to being a tad confused with this one. A new Baywatch spin-off movie has been announced; with Monty Python star John Cleese fulfilling the role of antagonist.

But even though David Hasselhoff, Pamela Anderson and Alexandra Paul - who appeared as Mitch Buchannon, CJ Parker and Stephanie Holden in the original Baywatch series – will star, the film doesn’t really have anything to do with Baywatch. They don’t have the rights. They can’t mention the word Baywatch. And they probably don’t need to.
‘Hoff the Record’ is coming to channel Dave next year
‘Baywatch’ star and Germany’s favourite recording artist, David Hasselhoff, is coming back to TV, with a new six part ‘spoof-reality’ series beginning next year. ‘Hoff the Record’ (yes that’s the real title) will be shown on comedy channel Dave in the UK, though we’re assuming the German’s will be quick snap this one up too.
Jump in my car, The Hoff is coming to channel Dave
The series sees David, sorry the Hoff, portraying a ‘fictionalised version of himself’ as he tries to rebuild his career in the UK. It will be “semi-improvised’ and David will have some as-yet-to-be-named comedy co-stars helping him along the way. Of course the obvious comparison to make is with HBO’s ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’, starring Larry David. But does The Hoff really have what it takes to make the next 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'?

We're going to get semi-fictionalised Hoff action in 2015
David Hasselhoff will be hitting Dave with a brand new, six-part spoof reality TV show set to air in 2015. The show will feature a semi-fictionalised Hoff and has been described to be akin to Curb Your Enthusiasm in style.
David Hasselhoff's new show is set to hit Dave in 2015
There are three distinct possibilities for the Hoff’s new comedy venture: the show will be genuinely funny, garner critical praise and get a second season before the first one is out, probably on another network; or it’ll be unintentionally funny and get laughs because it’s a bit naff; or it’ll be the horrible, slow death of a cult hero. We’ve a horrible feeling the latter might be in store.
The former Baywatch star dished on the restrictive weight clauses, the on-set conflict and assorted other Baywatch secrets.
Nicole Eggert’s Baywatch career is long over, so it’s only natural that the actress and her co-stars would want to dish on some behind-the-scenes secrets now, such as the highly restrictive weight clause in their contracts. You’d expect a show, known mostly for its extremely athletic cast and skimpy red swimsuits to have some sort of rules on appearance, but it’s still a surprise to learn just how harsh those rules were.
Nicole Eggert has managed to stay in shape even after Baywatch, as she demonstrated on Splash earlier this year.
Eggert, along with Tracy Bingham, a castmember between 1996 and 1998, both confirmed that any weight fluctuations beyond five pounds up or down, could get them booted off the show. The two were joined by former castmembers David Hasselhoff, Parker Stevenson, Brande Roderick and David Chokachi on ABC's Good Morning America, and all had some curious details to share.
