SANTA MONICA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nickelodeon
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 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.
