On August 1, watch “The Suicide Squad” and your “favorite big balls” in TBS’ one-hour cross-over episode, “Wipeout: The Suicide Squad Special,” featuring writer/director of the upcoming superhero action adventure film James Gunn with cameos from stars Nathan Fillion, Joel Kinnaman, David Dastmalchian and Daniela Melchior, along with “Wipeout” hosts John Cena (“The Suicide Squad,” “F9” “Peacemaker”), Nicole Byer (“Nailed It!,” “Girl Code”) and Camille Kostek (Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover Model 2019).

Additionally, in support of the premiere of “The Suicide Squad” on August 6 in theaters and on the HBO Max Ad-Free plan, The TNets (TBS, TNT, truTV) will air a weekend cross-network event kicking off July 30 through August 1 and featuring programming of fan-favorite squads from iconic films and TNets’ franchises. 

Hosted by John Cena and Nicole Byer with Camille Kostek serving as field host, “Wipeout” is an extreme course obstacle series that pushes the athleticism and willpower of each contestant to great extremes for an ultimate cash prize — all while delivering more than a few epic fails. 

Each game is divided into three rounds and features a jaw-dropping, three-stage, obstacle course consisting of multiple strategy and decision points designed to test the stamina of the competitors.  The series’ iconic big balls also made a comeback during the April launch of “Wipeout,” which ranked as Cable’s #1 new unscripted series for 2021. 

Endemol Shine North America produces the series for TBS, with Sharon Levy, DJ Nurre, Shyam Balsé and Keith Geller, serving as executive producers.  John Cena serves as an executive producer. Matt Kunitz, creator of the original series, serves as executive producer and showrunner.
