Beyond the Bull taps into the adrenaline of the fastest growing sport in America: professional bull riding. In the Professional Bull Riders (PBR) Built Ford Tough Series Tour, the world's best cowboys battle their 2,000 pound opponents for a million-dollar prize, bragging rights and the championship title. If they're lucky, they stay on the bull for a full eight seconds to qualify for monetary prizes; if not, they fall in the rankings and walk away (or limp away) without a dime.
Beyond the Bull spotlights three riders as they compete, chase the purse and tempt fate. Access to never-before-seen moments from the tour reveals their lives outside the chute — as husbands, fathers and sons. Each leads a hectic life — balancing careers and families, as well as battling their personal demons and fears. And with every bull they mount, the riders risk broken bones, dashed dreams and crushed egos.
Viewers will meet the hotshot young Australian Brendon Clark, who is navigating his sophomore season on the circuit; cattle rancher and newly engaged J.W. Hart, who's been successful but hasn't reached the championship pinnacle; and family man and Brazilian legend Adriano Moraes, who is vying for an unprecedented third gold buckle. In addition to the riders themselves, Beyond the Bull also features PBR medical director Dr. Tandy Freeman, J.W.'s fiance LeAnn Stilley, Adriano's wife Flavia Moraes and Brendon's girlfriend Anna Hunt.
