Bobby Bones is likely the busiest man in the industry, juggling several different avenues of entertainment. His latest endeavor, Breaking Bobby Bones, will hit televisions beginning Memorial Day.

Scheduled to premiere on Monday, May 31 on National Geographic, the 16-part series will take the National Radio Hall of Fame host across the country as he meets “every day heroes with extraordinary jobs.” During his time with each of the individuals, Bones will learn the ins and outs of their profession, while also fostering a special human connection.

“I love connecting with real, hard-working Americans to hear their stories of dedication, survival and how they turn their challenges into extraordinary opportunities,” said the host. “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.” 

According to a press release, some of Bones’ excursions include him working as a “tenacious stunt performer in Hollywood with one of the few women of color in the industry, to harvesting grain with a farmer who is from one of the first Black families in Virginia to own land after the Civil War, to learning to kayak the Payette River completely blindfolded from a blind honorably discharged U.S. Navy Petty Officer, to playing para sled hockey in Denver with a veteran who lost his legs while on deployment.”
