Bobby Bones and National Geographic are giving fans a sneak peek of Bones’ much anticipated new 16-part series, Breaking Bobby Bones, ahead of the show’s May 31 premiere.
The new unscripted series finds the multi-media personality challenging himself both mentally and physically in various locations around the country. From dangling over the Grand Canyon 4,000 feet above the Colorado River to playing para sled hockey in Denver with a veteran who lost his legs while on deployment, Bones pushes himself to his limits while getting to know everyday heroes who have extraordinary jobs, hobbies and abilities. Throughout each episode, Bones lives a day in their lives and attempts to learn the tricks for their trades while also highlighting the various challenges they’ve had to overcome along the way.
The just-released Breaking Bobby Bones show trailer offers a taste of what’s to come on Breaking Bobby Bones.
“I love connecting with real, hard-working Americans to hear their stories of dedication, survival and how they turn their challenges into extraordinary opportunities,” says Bobby Bones. “As someone from a small town who grew up in a trailer park, I’m always striving to do whatever it takes to never lose touch and meeting with each person has been nothing short of inspiring.”
“I am a longtime listener and huge personal fan of Bobby’s, so I couldn’t be happier that Nat Geo is the home for this fun, adventure-filled, inspiring series that celebrates Americans who work hard and take pride in everything they do,” says Courteney Monroe, president, Content, National Geographic. “Bobby’s enthusiasm is infectious and the authentic connections he builds with the people he meets touches the hearts of every one of them and will do the same for our viewers.”
“Bobby Bones personifies the resilience of the American spirit. He has a proven ability to connect with audiences in a truly genuine way. We are passionate about producing a series with heart that celebrates unsung heroes and committed to our long-standing partnership with National Geographic based on the Emmy-winning ‘Life Below Zero’ franchise, which has been going strong for nearly a decade on the network,” says Valerie Bruce, general manager of BBC Studios, Los Angeles Productions.
Breaking Bobby Bones premieres Monday, May 31 at 10/9c with two back-to-back episodes, then moves to Sundays at 10/9c with two new episodes premiering each week.
