Unveiling Hollywood's Unseen Heroes: A Thrilling Stunt Performer Docuseries by 87North and Universal Pictures

It has been announced that 87North, David Leitch and Kelly McCormick's production and action design company, has teamed with Universal Pictures Content Group to produce a Hollywood stunt performer docuseries.

The 6-part series will focus on the stories of stunt performers in their everyday lives, on set, and the adrenaline-pumping activities that they love, including action sports, martial arts, motocross, and more. It will also feature behind-the-scenes footage from sets including the upcoming  Ryan Gosling film "The Fall Guy". 

Leitch and McCormick are known for films such as "Bullet Train", and "Nobody", among others.

"My first loves are action films, and the backbone of this genre are the stunt performers who bring their kinetic magic to the screen. Kelly and I are excited to finally shine the spotlight on these unsung, unseen heroes of Hollywood and celebrate the stunt community with Acton," said Leitch, who was Brad Pitt's stunt double. 

Helen Parker, EVP of Universal Pictures Content Group, added, "There is absolutely no one better to work with when it comes to stunts and action movies, so we are thrilled that David and Kelly have been willing to secure such unprecedented access into the lives of their incredible teams who are unequivocally the best in the business. This documentary series gives a fascinating insight into the people behind the action; we get to meet some amazing characters and learn about what brought them to Hollywood and what they had to sacrifice in order to achieve success."

The series was produced by Josh Oreck (John Wick, Sherlock Homes) and Chelsea Allen (Prop Culture, Fam Jam), with Bridger Nielson (All Things Must Pass, The Prodigy) directing. Leitch and McCormick also serve as executive producers.
