Viacom’s youth-focused network MTV has slated the music-infused docuseries Dare to Live for a late-August premiere date.

Produced by THEOS and Roush Wagner Company, each half-hour episode of the series will feature renowned videographer Rory Kramer (pictured) and celebrity musicians on a thrill-seeking adventure.

Featured in the series are such artists as The Chainsmokers, Rae Sremmurd, Shawn Mendes, Martin Garrix, Steve Aoki, Krewella, Khalid and Iggy Azalea.

After struggling with depression and overcoming adversity, Kramer chose to celebrate life and establish a career at the intersection of video production, thrill-seeking and music, according to a release from the network.

As a videographer, Kramer has traveled the globe to work with such artists as Justin Bieber, The Chainsmokers, Kanye West, Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix, Krewella, as well as others, at major festivals, concerts and music videos.

Dare to Live is scheduled to roll out on Aug. 29 at 11 p.m. ET/PT, with two back-to-back episodes every week on MTV.

The series is directed and executive produced by Adam Vetri. Ben Nemtin, Dave Lingwood, Duncan Penn and Jonnie Penn are executive producers for THEOS. Chris Wagner and Jim Roush are executive producers for Roush Wagner Company. Kramer also serves as executive producer.
