December 15, 2014 — Trailer/promo for Season 2 of "Steve Austin's Broken Skull Challenge," an endurance/survival-genre series on CMT (Country Music Television), a unit of Viacom's MTV.

Episodes are filmed at S.O.S. FilmWorks (34855 Petersen Road, near Old Mint Canyon Road and Sierra Highway in Auga Dulce), which doubles for Austin's Broken Skull Ranch in Tilden, Texas.

S.O.S. FilmWorks takes its name from the defunct Space Ordnance Systems, which once stored chemicals there. Today it's a 348-acre property of Agua Dulce Movie Ranch Inc., which handles location booking for more than 158 film-friendly properties (as of 2015) including the Agua Dulce Airport and Msytery Mesa.

Austin, aka Stone Cold Steve Austin, is a retired Hall of Fame professional wrestler (USWA, WCW, ECW, WWF) who grew up in Texas and went to North Texas State at Wharton on a football scholarship. He made his wrestling debut in 1990 and was named Pro Wrestling Illustrated Rookie of the Year. Injuries sidelined him, but he returned to the ring and wrestled his last match at Wrestlemania in 2003. He transitioned into film and television and hosted "Redneck Island" on CMT before launching "Steve Austin's Broken Skull Challenge" in 2014.

Show contestants are selected from online submissions at The show solicits "the toughest men and women in America to compete for a chance to win $10,000."
