Freddie Flintoff to host Carnage, Sky One’s war on wheels
Andrew “Freddie” Flintoff, grime MC Lethal Bizzle and Capital FM presenter Vick Hope will be hurtling onto screens in new Sky One show Carnage.
The hosts join the high-octane show which will see teams of creative engineers, mechanics and drivers from throughout the UK and Ireland transform regular cars into weaponised battle-ready vehicles. Teams are then pitted against each other in a Mad Max-style combat in three vast arenas deep in the desert. The game is simple: inflict enough damage on your opponents to render their vehicles immobile, with the last car standing crowned Carnage champion.
All the diesel-fuelled crashes and smashes will air later this year on Sky One and streaming service NOW TV.
Freddie, whose previous hosting experience includes ITV’s Canonball and All Star Musicals, has commeneted: “Carnage has amazing vehicles designed by some top notch contestants.It’s going to be huge, exciting and intense, let the carnage begin!”
The six-episode Sky Original Production forms part of Sky One’s continued drive to bring viewers new, ambitious and action-packed entertainment shows.
Carnage is produced by Primal Media (a joint venture with Lionsgate) and Motion Content Group, with executive producers Mat Steiner and Adam Wood for Primal and Melanie Darlaston for Motion. The commissioner for Sky is Barbara Lee.
