MarkMcMorris-1

MTV Canada viewers are about to see professional snowboarders perform backside triple cork jumps before posing with fans and partying with celebrities in their downtime.

That comes as indie producer Buck Productions partners with Red Bull Media House to produce a docu-reality series about a pair of Canadian snowboarding brothers competing on the world circuit.

MTV Canada has commissioned eight episodes of McMorris & McMorris, which follows Regina, Saskatchewan-based Mark (pictured) and Craig McMorris as professional snowboarders.

Buck Productions and Red Bull Media House jointly developed McMorris & McMorris.

Jim Kiriakakis is supervising producer, Sean Buckley is executive producer, along with director Alex Craig and producer Oliver Linsley.
