The Fox Sports Media Group’s network for young males announced the premiere of two new series in December, including the U.S. premiere of the beach lifeguard reality show “Bondi Rescue” on Monday, 12/13 at 11:00pm ET/PT, and the action sports crash extravaganza “SLAM!” on Wednesday, 12/15 at 10:30pm ET/PT. These two premieres round out a busy fall launch schedule ever with nine new series rolling out since September on the network.
“Bondi Rescue” follows a real life elite team of Australian lifeguards at one of the busiest and most dangerous beaches in the world. These lifeguards are tasked with keeping 40,000 daily beachgoers safe from pounding surf, poisonous jellyfish, nasty sharks and each other. From encounters with wildlife, to surf injuries, to fights, to drug busts, to celebrity visits, there’s no place on earth like Bondi Beach.
FUEL’s original series “SLAM!,” hosted by professional daredevil and crash aficionado Chris “Slam” Lambert, delivers the most ruthless and gut-wrenching crashes and mishaps in all of sports — everything from surfers getting swallowed up by monster waves, skateboarders landing spread-eagle on rails, to freestyle motocross riders ejecting from 100-foot dirt jumps.
