LOS ANGELES, CA - FUEL TV, FOX Sports Media Group’s dynamic network for young males, announces the return of the action-packed adventure comedy show "Thrillbillies" premiering Wednesday, December 1, at 10:00pm ET/PT. From the producers of MTV's hit series, "Nitro Circus," "Thrillbillies" is an unscripted all-action series that follows a wily crew of athletes and stuntmen who test the laws of physics and logic through "don’t try this at home" antics. Each episode is pure, chaotic fun as stars Cam, Crum, and the rest of the "Thrillbillies" live out their inner Evel Knievel.
Some of the jaw-dropping highlights include the crew playing motorized tug-o-war with cars until they rip apart, launching snowmobiles into a lake, and blasting human hamster balls off giant hillside ramps. A Thrillbillie doesn’t act or think like a normal person. Their motto is: The wrong way of doing something is often more fun.
"Thrillbillies’ never disappoints and this new season begs the question: Do these guys get paid enough to do this stuff?" says Shon Tomlin, FUEL TV SVP of Programming and Marketing, and series’ Executive Producer. "Thrillbillies’ is all of your wildest childhood stuntman fantasies coming true. The crew this year upped their game and orchestrated some of the most outrageous stunts that will be sure to keep fans watching."
"The Thrillbillies are the Bad News Bears of action sports," says Jared Willardsen, Director/Producer. "This year we’ve expanded the crew from Monster Truck legend Cam (Cam McQueen) and Crum (Aaron Savage), to include Gavin Astle, pro motocross racer Derek Costella, BMX pro Pat Laughlin, and Spencer ‘Shrimpy’ Pratt. The results are simple, funny and ballsy. These guys get into all kinds of trouble and there’s always something you won’t want to miss!"
Produced by Godfrey Entertainment, season three of "Thrillbillies" premieres on FUEL TV on Wednesday, December 1, at 10:00pm ET/PT and each episode re-airs several times throughout the week. Episodes are also available on iTunes for $1.99. Watch the trailer below:
