“Ellismania” World Television Premiere Wednesday, April 6, 2011


FUEL TV, Fox Sports Media Group’s dynamic entertainment and sports network for young males, announces the world television premiere of the absurd fight comedy series “Ellismania,” with Jason Ellis—Australian “man’s-man,” pro fighter, pro skateboarder and host of an uncensored, no-holds barred daily show on Faction, SiriusXM’s action sports and music channel. The four-part series launches on Wednesday, April 6 at 10:00PM ET/PT, in FUEL TV’s Fearless Wednesdays line up.

In “Ellismania,” Jason prepares for and hosts Ellismania 6, a self-branded evening of “fighting at its dumbest,” peppered with hilarious twists of comedy for the amusement of friends and fans lucky enough to witness the absurdity. The series also looks back at the craziness of the previous five Manias, where star-studded match-ups meet goofball antics, including shock collars and blindfolds, in the most original fighting event on the planet.

“Ellismania is a let’s-get-together-and-punch-each-other-in-the-face party,” says Jason. “I put it on to give my fans the times of their lives. I’m really excited to bring it to a much larger television audience with FUEL TV.”

”I have never produced, or even seen, a show like this before,” says FUEL TV’s VP of Production and Development Scott Paridon. ”It’s truly a lesson of painful humility for anyone who steps into the ring to be a part of Ellismania. We’re excited to have filmed this amazing and totally entertaining event and bring it to television for the first time ever.”

The series highlights the hilarious and unthinkable exhibitions as sport and pop culture’s best collide in the ring, including UFC Champions Jason “Mayhem” Miller, MMA fighter Kit Cope, Animal Planet’s “Wild Recon” host Donald Schultz and motocross pro Ronnie Faisst. Ellismania 6 culminates with a main event that features a match between Angel Jones from E! Entertainment Television’s “Holly’s World” and Ellis radio show contributor Josh “Rawdog” Richmond.

Watch for a who’s who of celebrities such as UFC Champion Tim Silvia, former heavyweight boxer and trainer Justin Fortune, comedian Nick Swardson, two-time Supercross Champion Chad Reed, and musician Everlast to join the fun on the sidelines. The series was shot at the legendary Hollywood Palladium.
