A new TV series premiering in June has the quirky title “Too Stupid to Die.” The series is a new stunt and prank show coming to MTV, which calls the project, produced by MTV and Gunpowder & Sky, a “next-generation stunt series.”
The show, which is slated for eight half-hour episodes, was developed in conjunction with “YouTube banned, online sensation and daredevil Zach Holmes,” MTV notes.
“Packed with bizarre pranks, hilarious comedy and outrageous stunts, ‘Too Stupid to Die’ is the story of a backyard stunt family making a name for themselves with nothing but blood, sweat and fearlessness,” MTV adds.
“’Too Stupid to Die’ is the right kind of show and characters who fit our coming of age strategy that’s driving MTV’s growth,” said Chris McCarthy, President of MTV. “We were excited to develop this project with Van and thrilled to work together again.”
“We are always looking to uncover talent in front of and behind the camera from compelling subcultures,” said Van Toffler, CEO of Gunpowder & Sky. “‘Too Stupid To Die’ represents a nonconformist group of friends existing in the heart of our country so I’m excited to bring it to MTV, the original home of shining a light on emerging subcultures”.
“Too Stupid To Die” is executive produced by Gunpowder & Sky’s Van Toffler, Floris Bauer, Ross Breitenbach, David Harris and Zach Holmes. Nina L. Diaz, Tiffany Lea Williams and Nadim Amiry are executive producers for MTV.
