In a statement Sunday, the show’s producers said, “Our thoughts and prayers remain with Jonathan Goodwin and his family as he continues to recover from his accident on Thursday. In order to focus on the wellbeing of our crew, we will be temporarily pausing production on ‘America’s Got Talent: Extreme’ and will resume the last few days of filming at a later date. The health and safety of our cast and crew continue to be our priority.”
The new NBC reality competition show, a spin-off of the original “America’s Got Talent,” features “extreme” acts that by their very nature are dangerous like trapeze or motorcross bike stunts. The show has been shooting since Sept. 27 at Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, both in the main area and the surrounding parking lots.
Simon Cowell is an executive producer and a judge. He is joined by WWE wrestler Nikki Bella and professional motorsports competitor Travis Pastrana on the judge’s panel. Terry Crews is host.
The show is scheduled to debut on NBC in early 2022.
