USA Network announced today that Trishelle Cannatella ("Real World: Las
Vegas, "Kill Reality") has joined the cast of DR. STEVE-O, a reality
program starring Jackass alum Steve-O ("Jackass," "Wildboyz") that is
set to debut Monday, October 1st 11:05pm/10:05c on USA Network. DR.
STEVE-O will follow WWE Monday Night RAW, the highest-rated weekly
year-round series on cable.
Trishelle will assist Steve-O as his "Nurse on Duty" on his mission to "de-wussify" wimps, nerds and couch potatoes who have been nominated by their buddies, girlfriends, wives, mothers, coworkers or even have nominated themselves. Administering his brand of "extreme attitude adjustments," including shockingly hilarious stunts and embarrassingly funny and demented dares specifically tailored to each patient of the doctor on call, Steve-O, with the help of Trishelle will confront the guys, infiltrate their lives and shock them out of their shells.
"We are thrilled to have Trishelle joining Steve-O for this one of a kind program," said Jeff Wachtel, executive vice president original programming, USA Network. "With her sex appeal and southern charm, she’s a woman who will definitely help our guys find their new personas."
DR. STEVE-O is produced by Bunim/Murray Productions ("Real World," The Simple Life"). Executive producers are Jon Murray and Jeff Jenkins.
