The Indestructibles is a high-octane action sports show launching on Dave on 8th November. Hosts Tim Warwood and Adam Gendle are dropped in different locations around the UK where they have to dream up and then execute amazing stunts. Given just £1000 and three days to bring their stunt to life, they'll need every ounce of their extreme sports experience to pull it off. The Indestructibles is created by leading lifestyle sports and culture specialists Factory Media and funded by G-SHOCK.
Tim and Gendle must use their knowledge and contacts to find a star athlete with the right skills to take on each challenge. Each episode is engineered around a core sport and will feature a different star from that discipline including; BMX star Bob Manchester, multiple Trails champion Chris Akrigg and Hollywood stuntman Gary Connery, who performed as the Queen's stunt double during the Opening Ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games.
From a human marble run and Drift car racing to a loop-de-loop on a dry ski slope The Indestructibles take the audience on an explosive, hilarious journey.
The Indestructibles, new and exclusive to Dave, from Sunday 8th November 5pm, double-billed.
Tim and Gendle are the guides on this journey. They are well known in the world of action sports for their charm and comic presence as much for their ability as athletes. They are both professional snowboarders and have been on the scene for over 10 years.
Tim Warwood and Adam Gendle are available for interviews.
