Jesse James Is A Dead Man premiered on SPK on May 31, 2009. Jesse James takes on the role of a modern-day daredevil in this series, as viewers will get to experience one of the most fearless guys on the planet in an entirely new way, taking on death-defying physical challenges each week. Each episode will follow James as he readies himself for a different death-defying challenge. Preparing for the risky challenge can often be as dangerous as the challenge itself as he endures a battery of tests to prepare. With CGI effects, viewers get a taste of the enormity of the stunt, revealing the physiological stress James' body will endure. Some of the dangerous challenges he'll be facing include the harrowing, grueling and lawless off-road race, the Baja 500, and hitting over 200 mph on a Nitro bike supercharged by ultra-combustible nitro-methane fuel.
