Mip TV Picks 2008: Stunt Stars

They can't leap tall buildings; they're not as powerful as a locomotive; and very rarely can they outrun a speeding bullet - but they do make it look like your favorite actor can.

They can’t leap tall buildings; they’re not as powerful as a locomotive; and very rarely can they outrun a speeding bullet – but they do make it look like your favorite actor can.

Stunt men and women are the unsung heroes of the film industry. Always ready to put their lives in danger – or maybe it just looks that way to the untrained eye – they provide an essential service, transforming a filmmaker’s wildest ideas into a physical reality. (Otherwise it would all be Tuesdays with Morrie‘)

In Stunt Stars, the audience will get an in-depth look at what makes these adrenaline junkies tick, and manage a look behind the scenes of some of their trickiest stunts. Partners: CMJ Productions (Montreal), coproduced with E! Entertainment (Canada), and distributed through Cable Ready (Norwalk)
Wrapping: June
Length: 10 x 60 minutes
Rights available: All worldwide, excluding pay TV in Latin America and all TV in Canada
