Promoted as “The most extreme contest on the planet”, Sky One’s new action-packed TV shows sees teams of engineers and mechanics custom build weaponised vehicles, ready for combat under the hot desert sun.
Where was Carnage filmed?
As you’ve probably already guessed from the hot, dry, sunny weather and the vast open spaces used as the 3 arena locations, this series was not shot here in Britain. After preparing their cars here in the UK, Carnage competitors then headed out to an area of the Kalahari Desert in South Africa for filming.
There six episodes were filmed for this first series, which is scheduled to premiere at 8:00pm on Sunday 6 May, 2018 on Sky1.
The Kalahari Desert’s sandy savanna covers a massive 350,000 square miles and also makes up large sections of Botswana and Namibia.
Who are the Carnage presenters?
Most Sky viewers will likely be familiar with main host Andrew ‘Freddie’ Flintoff, with the former cricketer already being a regular face on sports-themed panel show A League of Their Own, as well as fronting such series as Lord of the Fries and Freddie Down Under.
Depending on your tastes in music, you may or may not recognise Freddie’s co-hosts: English rapper Lethal Bizzle and Capital FM radio presenter Vick Hope.
This Mad Max and Robot Wars inspired reality competition sees 30 teams transform a wide variety of vehicles, equipping them with the armour and weaponry they believe will give them the winning edge.
