The television series Breaking Bobby Bones will debut on National Geographic on May 31. In the 16-part unscripted series, multimedia personality Bobby Bones will travel the country to meet people who have extraordinary skills. He will then accept the challenge of living a day in their lives and attempting new feats, such as becoming a stunt performer in Hollywood with one of the few women of color in the industry, or learning to kayak while blindfolded from a blind honorably discharged naval officer.
Bones will host and executive produce the show, seeking to feature people who embody his personal mantra: Fight. Grind. Repeat.
The show premieres May 31 (Memorial Day) at 10/9 CT with two back-to-back episodes, then moves to Sundays at 10/9 CT with two 30-minute episodes premiering each week.
Bones adds this to his many roles, including radio personality, bestselling author, and a full-time mentor on ABC’s American Idol.
Breaking Bobby Bones is produced by BBC Studios’ Los Angeles production arm for National Geographic. Alongside Bones, Betsy Forhan serves as executive producer for National Geographic, and Travis Shakespeare and Jeffrey L. Weaver executive produce for BBC Studios.
