Jackass is a television series aired on MTV from 2000 to 2002. The show is created by Johnny Knoxville, Spike Jonze, and Jeff Tremaine. The series stars Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, and Steve-O.


The idea of Jackass began in the Big Brother Skate videos that featured mostly skateboarding, pranks, and stunts.

Jeff Tremaine originally pitched the idea to HBO but the studio declined it, however Mtv loved it and picked it up instead. Jeff called up his high school friend Spike Jonze to help them with the production.
