A&E Network has partnered with Essential Media Group, part of the KEW Media Group, to produce the live stunt series “The Impossible Live” (working title). In addition to this 10 episode series order, A&E and Essential have also been partnering with daredevil Bello Nock and his company Opportunity Nocks, Inc. to create “Volcano Walk Live” (working title), a live special showcasing the longest, most complicated and dangerous stunt ever attempted – a world record high-wire walk over an active volcano.
Over the course of five two-hour episodes, “The Impossible Live” (wt) will feature the world’s greatest daredevils attempting the most death-defying stunts ever seen on live television; including a parachute-less jump from a plane onto a speeding train, a motorcycle jump off a cliff in which the daredevil must drop the bike and grab on to the skids of a passing helicopter before the motorcycle plummets to the ground below; and the highest wire walk ever attempted from one hot air balloon to another.
“The Impossible Live” and “Volcano Walk Live” are produced and developed by Essential Media Group, with Jesse Fawcett, Greg Quail and Chris Hilton serving as executive producers. Elaine Frontain Bryant, Shelly Tatro, and Brad Holcman are executive producers for A&E.
