The first series is an 8-part, 30 minute per episode documentary/reality style series which follows the hugely popular Nitro Circus crew as they travel around the world with their spectacular live arena show.
The new series showcases the Nitro Circus stars both performing their
breathtaking and dangerous show stunts, plus all the hilarious behind the scenes antics when 40 crazy young performers travel to some of the worlds most amazing places.
The Nitro TV series stars 17 times X Games Gold medalist Travis Pastrana, the world’s greatest action sports star, and his fearless Nitro crew, plus some of the best known and accomplished action sports stars on the planet.
The series combines spectacular and dangerous stunts with non-stop, behind the scenes action, which is sometimes dramatic, often highly inspirational and almost always simply hilarious.

Along the way, we meet some interesting and truly inspirational people, including Aaron ‘Wheelz’ Fotheringham, the 1st wheelchair athlete to backflip his chair off the 60 foot high Gigant-A-Ramp. Or X Games Gold medalist Cam Sinclair, who almost died performing the most dangerous trick in action sports, the double backflip, then trying it again for the first time on the Nitro tour. Get ready to be inspired, to be shocked and laugh til it hurts. This is Nitro Circus Live.
