Self-Documented 'Steve-O: Demise and Rise' to Air on MTV


Steve-O


This May, the low and rise of 'Jackass' star Steve-O will be unveiled in a documentary special that 'captures the most frightening moments'.

Steve-O is not so fast leaving the TV screen. The eliminated "Dancing with the Stars" contestant will have his turbulent life chronicled in an MTV documentary, "Steve-O: Demise and Rise", that will air Sunday, May 3 at 10 P.M. ET/PT.

The self-documented series explores Steve-O's struggle in overcoming his drug and alcohol addiction. According to its press release, the show "gives a raw, intimate first-hand account of Steve-O's downward spiral to when he ultimately hits rock bottom and is saved by the intervention of friends and his own will to do whatever it takes to get and stay sober."

Steve-O has been capturing his life on camera since his teen years. He began his career as a stuntman, and flea-market clown before coming to stardom with his "Jackass" and "Wildboyz" role. The footage will include him on the moment of substance abuse, terrorizing his neighbor and his attempt to be a gangsta-rapper.

Now living a clean and sober life, Steve-O wants to show through the documentary that he has tried his best although it is still hard to stay in the right lane.

"This documentary captures the most frightening moments of my friend at the apex of his addiction. I know because I was there," said his "Jackass" co-star Johnny Knoxville. "More importantly though it offers hope, and documents the tremendous amount of courage and hard work on Steve-O's behalf to turn that hope into a healthy person."
