Jackass star Bam Margera is taking his wild stunt ideas to a whole new level with Bam's Bad Ass Game Show, an over-the-top competition series greenlit today by TBS. The network ordered six episodes of the half-hour series, which is set to premiere in 2014.

Each week on Bam's Bad Ass Game Show, competitors will vie for $10,000 by facing off against each other in incredibly demented, potentially dangerous and occasionally painful challenges, like answering trivia questions while dangling above a pool of trash-filled water or dropping a watermelon on a target after being shot out of a cannon. The loser of each challenge is eliminated until there's only one contestant left standing to take home the cash prize.

Helping design and demonstrate the various challenges are Bam's friends and cohorts, who occasionally wind up worse off than any of the contestants.

Bam's Bad Ass Game Show comes to TBS from Bill's Market & TeleVision Productions. David A. Hurwitz (Fear Factor), Noah Bonnett (Total Blackout) and Bam Margera (Jackass) serve as executive producers.
