On this one we learned all about crushed knees, broken ribs and torn muscles. And spandex. Oh, and nipple surgery. Traumatizing? Not as much as the real American Gladiators experience back in the ’90s.

We’re thrilled to re-unite with Campfire and directors Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite, Nacho Libre) and Tony Vainuku (Untold, In Football We Trust) to create in-story animations and archival recreations for the new Netflix doc series #MusclesandMayhem.
