Knoxville, Jeff Tremaine, Sean Cliver, and Dave Carnie produced a pilot that used Big Brother footage and footage from Bam Margera‘s CKY videos; with help from Tremaine’s friend, film director Spike Jonze, they pitched a series to various networks. A deal was made with MTV and Jackass was born.[4] Knoxville also participated in the Gumball 3000 for Jackass along with co-stars Steve-O, Chris Pontius, Jackass director Jeff Tremaine, and producer Dimitry Elyashkevich.
