Bones will meet with local heroes who challenge him to attempt to conquer the tricks of their trades while exploring the tricks of their trades that made them who they are today.

The show will then move to Sundays with two new episodes premiering each week. Apart from the television premiere, audiences can tune in to the show without cable on NatGeoTV.com on Apple TV, Fire TV, Roku, Android TV, Xbox One, or the Nat Geo TV mobile apps for iOS and Android.



Bobby Bones will be seen learning what it's like to become a stunt artist and the episodes will also see him kayak across the Colorado river while being blindfolded. Don't worry, Bones is also going to be indulging in fun things including learning how to play para hockey on a sled. Risky, yes. But how exciting! The official press release of the show states, 'Breaking Bobby Bones' is "an action-packed celebration of Americans who work hard, play hard and, above all, take pride in everything they do."



Bobby Bones 

Bones is no stranger to reality TV shows - from 'Dancing with the Stars' where he even went home with the mirrorball trophy - to serving as a mentor on 'American Idol' Season 19, he has done it all. There were also rumors of him leading a season of 'The Bachelor' so you know, he really is no stranger to television shows. But there's more to him than just being a fixture on television. 


He has been named Best Radio Personality by the Austin Music Awards for four years in a row and won the award for Best Radio Program in the early years of his career. A few years ago he and co-hosts Amy, Eddie, and Lunchbox won an Academy of Country Music Award for National On-Air Personality of the Year. But his radio career faced a major bump after he unintentionally triggered the Emergency Alert System by playing a clip of an EAS test from 2011 over the airwaves. The audio then triggered alerts to thousands of AT&T customers' phones and televisions, which is designed to happen only during a national emergency. Bones' fault caused a huge public uproar and an investigation by the FCC in the incident. 





'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.



Bones admits about his new venture that he, “hated doing a lot of these actual missions, but there was never a second that I was gonna not do them. But [I believe] I'm supposed to hate them. I believe you don't grow unless you're uncomfortable. I've grown about ten feet tall after [doing] this.”
