DESCRIPTION:
(from USA's press release, September 2019) USA Network has ordered the Milo Ventimiglia ("This Is Us")-led limited series EVEL, which is based on the story of larger-than-life 70's daredevil Evel Knievel as he prepares for his greatest death-defying feat, the historic Snake River Canyon jump. EVEL is an exhilarating portrait of a complex man living the American dream, juggling meteoric celebrity and raising a family -- and facing the very real probability that his next jump will kill him. From UCP, Etan Frankel ("Sorry For Your Loss," "Shameless," "Animal Kingdom") will write and executive produce the series. Serving as executive producers are McG, Mary Viola, and Steven Bello of Wonderland Sound & Vision; Alex Gartner, Charles Roven and Topher Rhys-Lawrence of Atlas Entertainment; and Ventimiglia. Russ Cundiff will co-executive produce on behalf of DiVide Pictures. Production is expected to begin in 2020.
