TBS Greenlights Stunt Show With 'Jackass' Star Deadline
TBS is adding to its unscripted lineup with a series order for a new stunt show, Deadline.com reports. The cable channel ordered six episodes of "Bam's Bad Ass Game Show," which features "Jackass" star Bam Margera, the story reports.
The show is also executive produced by Margera, as well as "Fear Factor’s” David A. Hurwitz.
"Each half-hour episode of the show will feature competitors who vie for $10,000 by facing off against each other in demented, potentially dangerous and occasionally painful challenges, like answering trivia questions while dangling above a pool of trash-filled water or dropping a watermelon on a target after being shot out of a cannon," the story notes.
The show is geared toward male viewers, as is TBS's new program "King of the Nerds." It's likely being eyed as another companion to "The Big Bang Theory," the article notes.
