Carnage, car racing show, is coming to Sky One in May

Monday, April 30th 2018 by Oprah Flash

Just in time for the bank holiday, Sky has plans to bring Carnage to our screens. Imagine a mix of Top Gear with Robot Wars in the middle of the desert and you’ve got Sky’s latest Original production.

The ‘most extreme contest on the planet’, Carnage, is coming to Sky One and NOW TV on Sunday 6 May, and will be hosted by trio Presenter Andrew “Freddie” Flintoff, grime MC Lethal Bizzle and Capital FM presenter Vick Hope.

Vick Hope said: “Carnage is like a mix of Robot Wars, Mad Max and Wacky Races – I can’t wait to see the mad cars the teams create.”

Made up of six episodes, the series brings us some awesome diesel-fuelled crashes as thirty purpose built, weaponised vehicles go head to head in the scorching heart of the desert.

'Huge, exciting and intense, let the carnage begin!'

Teams of engineers and mechanics from across the UK and Ireland turn regular run-of-the-mill cars into battle-ready fighting machines. There are three arenas in which each team will fight it out Mad Max style. The aim of the game is to inflict enough damage on your opponents to render their vehicles immobile, with the last car standing crowned Carnage champion.

Co-host, Freddie Flintoff, said: “Carnage has amazing vehicles designed by some top notch contestants. It’s going to be huge, exciting and intense, let the carnage begin!”

The grime artist who brought us songs such as Pow and Fester Skank, Lethal Bizzle, said: “It’s awesome to be involved in such a crazy and exciting show.”

Carnage is produced by Primal Media (a joint venture with Lionsgate) and Motion Content Group, with executive producers Mat Steiner, Adam Wood and Nic Patten for Primal and Melanie Darlaston for Motion. It was commissioned for Sky by Barbara Lee.

Carnage will be available on Sky One and NOW TV from 6 May. If you’re new to Sky TV and thinking of signing up, you can get your hands on is basic Entertainment pack from £20 a month. Alternatively, Sky is currently offering a 25% discount if you lump broadband and TV together.
