NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nickelodeon
announced today two new sports-themed series from production partners
Rob Dyrdek and Shane Nickerson of Superjacket Productions (Fantasy
Factory, Ridiculousness
): Crashletes, a new viral sports clip
series hosted by New England Patriots Super Bowl XLIX Champion and Pro
Bowl tight end Rob Gronkowski; and Jagger Eaton’s Mega Life
(working title), an action-packed docu-series that follows 15-year-old
skateboarding phenom Eaton as he skates around the world and hangs out
with his idols. Both series will be in production for 20 episodes each
and will premiere later this year.

“Nick has a long history in kid reality beginning with game shows like Double
Dare
and Legends of the Hidden Temple,” said Cyma Zarghami,
President, Viacom Kids and Family Group. “Crashletes and Jagger
Eaton
allow us to connect the audience via real and authentic people
and a different kind of storytelling that is fresh and exciting.”

“Partnering with Nickelodeon allows me to share my passion for sports
and pop culture with kids and families in creative and innovative ways,”
said Dyrdek. “With Gronk’s fun, big personality and Jagger’s relatable,
youthful insight, Crashletes and Mega Life will resonate
with sports fans and kids alike.”

Crashletes will feature guest personalities from the worlds of
sports and entertainment, along with the funniest, craziest viral sports
clips and user-generated content from around the world. As host,
Gronkowski will offer funny commentary on the clips, alongside his
co-hosts and guest stars. Jagger Eaton’s Mega Life follows the
adventures of teen skateboarder Eaton as he shows viewers what it’s like
to spend a day in the shoes of people who are pushing boundaries, living
their lives without limits and inspiring others to do the same.

Crashletes and Jagger Eaton’s Mega Life are the latest
Dyrdek-produced series to join Nickelodeon’s lineup. Dyrdek and
production partner Nickerson previously created and executive produced
the hit animated show Wild Grinders, inspired by Dyrdek’s
real-life experiences, currently airing in the NickSports TV block on
Nicktoons.
