Beginning Monday, August 27 at 10:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on MTV, Series Portrays How Teen Heartthrob and Athlete Balances Life and Love

MTV teams up with gifted skateboarder and new teen heartthrob Ryan Sheckler to "shred" the airwaves with new reality drama "Life of Ryan," premiering Monday, August 27 at 10:30 p.m. (ET/PT). Through episodes on-air and bonus materials online, viewers will have an intimate look at how this energetic teenager balances the responsibilities of being a professional skater with his desire to be a normal kid who wants to spend time with his friends and family back home in Southern California.

"Life of Ryan" is a coming-of-age story featuring a 17-year-old superstar skateboarder who defies gravity for a living but is being grounded by the pull of his personal life as it starts to fall apart. His parents recently finalized their divorce so Ryan has taken on the added responsibility of being both big brother and father to his two brothers, Shane and Kane. Despite his celebrity status as an action sports athlete, Ryan looks forward to hanging out with his childhood friends Tony, Casey and Casey's girlfriend Taylor � whether it's going surfing, riding motocross bikes, skating on his personal skatepark in the backyard or trying to find the perfect girl.

MTV.com will feature exclusive behind-the-scenes elements, including a "Meet the Cast" photo flipbook with single and group images of Ryan and his friends hanging out at his home or skateboarding on the skatepark plus a blog for viewers to learn more about the show and the cast � and post their own comments. Ryan will contribute some of his own personal thoughts about having the cameras capture his life.

Episodes of "Life of Ryan" will be available for download to own on iTunes Store (www.iTunes.com), Amazon Unbox (http://unbox.amazon.com), AOL Video (http://video.aol.com) and Walmart Video Downloads the day after each episode airs on linear. Viewers have the option to either purchase single episodes or a season pass, with a discounted price being offered to those who purchase early.

Jason Carbone (MTV's "Run's House") serves as Executive Producer for "Life of Ryan" with Sarah Kane ("America's Next Top Model") as the Co-Executive Producer. Michael Powers and Lauren Dolgen are the MTV executives overseeing the project.
