On June 20, the Jackass star called Ebert a "piece of shit" after he wrote, "Friends don't let jackasses drink and drive," following co-star Ryan Dunn's death in a high-speed car crash. Ebert later admitted it was "probably too quick to tweet."

Jackass' Bam Margera is heading to TBS.

The cable network on Wednesday ordered Bam's Bad Ass Game Show, described as an "over the top" competition series. The six-episode, half-hour show will launch in 2014.

Here is how the show will work, according to the release: "Competitors will vie for $10,000 by facing off against each other in incredibly demented, potentially dangerous and occasionally painful challenges, like answering trivia questions while dangling above a pool of trash-filled water or dropping a watermelon on a target after being shot out of a cannon. The loser of each challenge is eliminated until there's only one contestant left standing to take home the cash prize."

Margera's friends and colleagues will be on hand to help.

Bam's Bad Ass Game Show comes from Bill's Market & Television Productions. David A. Hurwitz (Fear Factor), Noah Bonnett (Total Blackout) and Margera are executive producers.

TBS continues to add to its unscripted slate, with Bad Ass Game Show joining new series from Howie Mandel and Mark Burnett.
