Westport, Conn. (March 4, 2016) OUTSIDE TV, America’s preeminent active and adventure television network, in conjunction with Teton Gravity Research (TGR) and Anthill Films, announce the premiere of a new TV series titled, UnReal. The series is a behind the scenes look at the progressive mountain bike film UnReal, released in 2015. Each of the eight episodes will give viewers an in-depth look at the production of the film, the athletes involved and the next-level stunts accomplished.
UnReal airs Fridays at 9pm ET on Outside Television beginning this Friday, March 4th. The first episode will showcase some of the world’s best pro mountain bikers as they charge down a ridge alongside a herd of over 30 horses.
A handful of notable segments to be highlighted in the Outside TV series were recently shared in viral form across the internet. The first was Tom van Steenbergen’s front-flip, potentially breaking a world record. Second: the Dirt Blizzard segment, where Vancouver’s peat supplies went scarce to transform Whistler’s bike park into a real-life dream of loamy, freshly-fallen soil. And most memorable is Brandon Semenuk’s “One Shot” segment , which features four minutes of remarkably crisp, uncut footage on a private track, captured using a $750,000 gimbal-stabilized camera system, known as the GSS 520.
