BULLPROOF, the first-of-it's-kind native 3D "sportumentary" program premiered Thursday, May 5 (9PM ET/PT).
Featuring some of the world's most extreme man-versus-beast encounters, this one-hour weekly series documents the danger and drama of a group of professional bullfighters as they risk their lives to save the cowboys of the Championship Bull Riding (CBR) circuit.
