Forget about the almost superhuman movie heroes who dodge bullets and take out the bad guys, Hardcore Heroes
will show you who the real heroes are! Each one hour episode will feature two adrenaline-packed stories of real-life courage and self-sacrifice. Think Chuck Yeager, the fearless pilot who broke the sound barrier; Jack Pritchard, New York City’s most decorated firefighter; or John Keller, the marine who rescued victims during Hurricane Katrina. From iconic war heroes to technological wizards, to brave men and women who risked their lives or turned the tide of battle, every story will focus on the coolest tactics, the biggest gambles and the riskiest maneuvers that saved the day or changed the world.
