LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Jeremy Renner wished his fans a “HAPPY FRIDAY” on Instagram, along with a behind-the-scenes photo from his Disney+ series “Rennervations,” which was taken before his horrific accident in Lake Tahoe. The actor, 52, captioned the image, “HAPPY FRIDAY from us all #bts #camprennervations @disneyplus”, days after making his first public appearance since being hit by a 14-year-old snow plow 000 pounds.
In the image that was shared, Renner is joined by his crew as they review some shots during nighttime filming. The premiere of “Rennervations” on April 12 will follow the “Hawkeye” actor as he enlists his famous friends to transform vehicles into community service vehicles. The idea behind the show is to locate abandoned vehicles, such as city buses, which can be rebuilt by a team of skilled builders to serve a new purpose, such as a mobile recreation center. Featuring its homeland of Reno, Nevada, the four episodes will cover Chicago, Illinois; Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; and even Rajasthan, India.

“I wanted to do it for the communities and help the children”
Recently, a two-minute trailer featuring Renner was released. “I buy these disused government vehicles to help them reinvent them to serve the community again, just in a different way. I set out to reinvent, reuse and refurbish these vehicles and wanted to do it for communities and help children in need all over the world,” he said in the trailer.
According to The Daily Mail, Sebastián Yatra of “Encanto”, Vanessa Hudgens of “High School Musical”, Anthony Mackie of “Mission Impossible” and Anil Kapoor of “Avengers” will all lend a hand to Renner. He explained, “I also brought talented and familiar friends to help deliver them.”
In a Disney press release, the ‘The Avengers’ star said, “I’ve been on this adventure for many years, and started in my community building vehicles for people in need. A few years ago I thought, how can I add that and create a bigger impact on an entire community? And that’s what this show does. It’s one of my biggest passions and it’s is a driving force in my recovery, and I can’t wait for the world to see it.”
Renner says he’s doing ‘whatever it takes’ to get better
The day before, Jeremy had made his first public appearance after being seriously injured by a snow plow on New Years Day near his Lake Tahoe, Nevada home. On a cold winter’s day in Southern California, the “Marvel” star was a passenger in a car that was spotted in Beverly Hills, Calif. He smiled as he was transported to an office building, where he spent about thirty minutes before leaving, and appeared to be in excellent spirits.
It was the first time the actor had been seen in public since the tragic event, and he was wearing a red shirt and glasses. Since surviving the horrific January 1 crash, Renner has been documenting his recovery, which could take years. In a video that showed him strengthening his legs using a Technogym bike last week, the celeb claimed he was doing “whatever it takes” to recover.
