Nickelodeon Takes Skateboarding To New Heights In Jagger Eaton’s Mega Life, New Docu-Series

Skateboard jagger-333Nickelodeon and 15-year-old skateboarding phenomenon Jagger Eaton give kids a glimpse into the lives of fearless, world-class athletes in the all-new, action-packed docu-series, Jagger Eaton’s Mega Life, premiering Friday, Sept. 9, at 7:30 p.m. (ET/PT). The 20-episode series follows Eaton as he immerses himself in the world of his sports idols – Chris Bosh, Leticia Bufoni, Bubba Wallace, Larry Fitzgerald, Erika Lang, to name a few, who are pushing their limits and inspiring others to do the same. Click here for a sneak peek of Jagger Eaton’s Mega Life.

Along his action-packed journey, Eaton will spend time in the shoes of pro-athletes and face his fears, while learning the demanding ways they train and test themselves to be the best of the best.   Some of his experiences include cage-free diving with sharks in the Bahamas; Heli-boarding down a 10,000-foot mountain in Alaska; Fat-tire biking down Wyoming’s treacherous slopes; and jousting head-to-head on horseback against a world champion jouster. But behind the big tricks and extreme sports accolades is an everyday 15-year-old kid, grounded by his friends and family who are always by his side.

Throughout the season, Eaton will also meet up with Miami Heat™ forward Chris Bosh, Detroit Pistons™ center Andre Drummond, Olympic snowboarder Louie Vito, NASCAR drivers Harrison Burton and Bubba Wallace, professional diver Liz Parkinson, hip-hop dance crew Jabbawockeez, and more.

The premiere episode of Jagger Eaton’s Mega Life finds Eaton preparing for a huge skate contest in his hometown of Phoenix, Ariz.  To prep for the competition, Jagger meets up with Arizona Cardinals™ wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and Bellator MMA fighter Keri Taylor-Melendez for some advice from the pros.

Leading into to the series premiere, Eaton will guest star on Nick’s viral video show Crashletes, hosted by New England Patriots™ Rob Gronkowski, at 7:00 p.m. (ET/PT). Crashletes season two premieres Friday, Sept. 16 at 7:00 p.m. (ET/PT).

Hailing from Mesa, Ariz., Eaton is one of the most progressive and versatile skateboarders the sport has ever seen. His ability to skate and compete on anything from the streets to the mega ramp puts Jagger in a category of his own. In 2012, at 11 years old, Jagger set the Guinness World Record as the youngest ever X Games competitor when he competed in the Big Air competition against industry veterans.
