“These guys are on a mission to change lives, spread hope and make dreams come true, while also having the time of their lives and fulfilling their own dreams. It is an amazing journey, and we are proud to be a partner in this inspirational and uniquely entertaining series. It’s more than just a show. . . it’s a movement,” said
“These guys are young, creative and committed to trying to change the world by helping others realize their passions and achieve their dreams,” said
Through the course of the season, viewers will ride along with the gang of four as they try to pull off unbelievable stunts and realize their dreams- sometimes succeeding, sometimes not. Fans will get to know Duncan, the oldest of the group at age 26, who is a bit of a wild card with a heart of gold; Ben, the 25 year-old ringleader who will do whatever it takes to get things done; Jonnie, Duncan’s 22 year- old younger brother, who is a blogger and philosopher, and who girls seem to fall in love with; and Dave, the 23 year-old break-dancer and “one-man party” who is up for anything. With the help of MTV, Duncan, Ben, Jonnie and Dave are crossing #53 of their list: start a television show.
Three years ago, “The Buried Life” began as Duncan, Ben, Dave and Jonnie, disillusioned about what lay ahead for the future of their generation, decided to make a list of everything they wanted most in life. Together, the group of friends made a list of everything they wanted most in life. With their list of “things to do before you die” in tow, the guys set out on an adventure and along the way, promised they would help others achieve their own set of goals. The title of their fearless journey was inspired by a poem written by
“Life moves fast and we wanted to slow down and enjoy it. To do that we had to ask ourselves some important questions, most importantly: What do I need to achieve or experience before I die?” said
