A&E Network announced that it is expanding its Sunday night WWE programming block this spring with the all-new docuseries titled Stone Cold Takes on America.
Produced by Lionsgate’s Pilgrim Media Group, Stone Cold Takes on America premieres Sunday, April 30 at 10pm ET/PT and sets out on the road as Austin takes viewers on an epic adventure as he redefines what life after years in the ring looks like and experiences everything he missed out on while focused on his career.
In each one-hour episode of Stone Cold Takes on America, Austin will hit the road in his RV, accepting challenges from fans that push him out of his comfort zone, and make up for lost time. Through archival footage from classic WWE moments and his own stories, the series weaves together Austin’s old and new life—both filled with incredible feats and his unique point of view—as he celebrates and learns from new experiences how only Stone Cold Steve Austin can.
The series is executive produced by WWE. Executive producers include Craig Piligian, Steve Austin, Heather Olander, Stijn Bakkers and Mike Nichols, who also serves as showrunner. Elaine Frontain Bryant and Brad Abramson serve as executive producers for A&E. A&E Networks holds worldwide distribution rights for Stone Cold Takes on America.
A new season of WWE’S Most Wanted Treasures will serve as the lead-in for Austin’s new A&E show, starting at 9PM ET.
