Bobby Bones has spent the last several months filming for his first ever own TV show, BREAKING BOBBY BONES. The series premiere happened over Memorial Day weekend and now there will be two new episodes airing every Sunday night on National Geographic at 10/9 pm CT.
In each half-hour episode of BREAKING BOBBY BONES, Bones pursues his own mantra—Fight. Grind. Repeat.—by traveling to far-flung destinations across the country to find people with unique jobs, skills, hobbies and abilities. Upon arrival, he meets local everyday heroes who challenge him to conquer (or at least attempt) the tricks of their trades while exploring the triumphs and tragedies that made these heroes who they are today. Through their joint experiences, viewers come along for the ride learning what it’s like to become a tenacious stunt performer, kayak a river blindfolded and play para sled hockey. It’s an action-packed celebration of Americans who work hard, play hard and, above all, take pride in everything they do.
First up this Sunday at 10/9 pm CT, Bones heads to Virginia to meet PJ, a fifth-generation African American farmer whose family has endured and overcome more than 150 years of discrimination to maintain their land. This challenge will force Bobby to get his hands dirty as he attempts to farm on an epic scale. Then he heads to Colorado and meets Ralph, a former Marine turned Paralympic gold medalist. Bobby listens to Ralph’s story of how he overcame the loss of his legs and found renewed purpose through the sport of sled hockey. Ralph challenges Bobby to hit the ice for the first time and score a goal in a game.
