MTV's newest Sunday night lineup includes Nitro Circus, an all-out stunt show populated by the ballsiest stuntmen America's backwoods has to offer. Don't watch the trailer without a cup on.
What else would you expect from the collaboration of Jackass Star Johnny Knoxville and Professional Crazyman Travis Pastrana under a gigantic MTV-scale budget? Utter insanity.
The official webpage describes the show:
Nitro Circus revolves around the world's greatest freestyle motocross rider Travis Pastrana and his crew of top action sport athlete buddies and enablers. Imagine if Evel Knievel and eight of his equally insane buddies had a television show where they tried to top the other performer's stunts week after week. That's Nitro Circus.
Whether they are trying to back-flip a motorcycle over a ravine, jump out of a plane without a parachute, or jump a Big Wheel 40-feet into the air into a crowded boat dock, Travis and his gang of nuts are going at it hard, 24/7, and there is no downtime — it's just fast, faster and disaster.
