Milo Ventimiglia has been cast to star in USA Network’s limited series Evel.

Based from the American stunt performer Evel Knievel, Ventimiglia is also attached to executive produce.

Ethan Frankel will pen the script with McG’s Wonderland Sound & Vision, UCP and Atlas Entertainment.

You can read the premise of the series below:

The limited series is based on the story of Evel Knievel (Ventimiglia) as he prepares for his greatest death-defying feat — the historic Snake River Canyon jump. Evel is an exhilarating portrait of a complex man living the American dream, juggling meteoric celebrity and raising a family — and facing the very real probability that his next jump will kill him.
