Alli, the Alliance of Action Sports™, today announced that the first episode of the newly created The Alli Show will premiere on MTV2, Saturday, October 10 at 11:00 p.m. EST.

The Alli Show is a portrait of each of the six sports included in the Alliance (skate, BMX, moto, wake, freeski and snowboard) as told by the athletes at the center of their respective sports. Featuring athletes who are making a name for themselves through their competitions, videos and editorials, The Alli Show also showcases each athlete’s lifestyle and personality.

VBS, VICE Media’s broadband television network, produced the series and spent months traveling the country getting in-depth interviews and behind-the-scenes footage of some of the world’s most remarkable athletes. The first episode of The Alli Show will debut on MTV2 on October 10, with the six remaining shows following each Saturday at 11:00 p.m. EST.

Below is a synopsis of the opening episode of The Alli Show (All times are EST):

Moto: featuring Josh Grant
The debut episode of The Alli Show follows Josh Grant – a member of the Joe Gibbs racing team – who is in contention for the Motocross National Championship. We join him mid-season as he travels to California to prepare for the X Games and ride with fellow Metal Mulisha riders Todd Potter and Ronnie Faisst at Brian Deegan’s compound. Soon after, an injury sustained while competing at X Games threatens his season, and we follow Grant as he copes with rehab and the prospect of competing with his injuries.
Airdate: October 10 at 11pm on MTV2
