The majority of The A.V. Club’s readership likely knows about as much about the world of bull riding as most bull-riding fans probably know about Sean Tillmann’s tongue-in-cheek porn-star-inspired alter ego Har Mar Superstar.

The six-part documentary series from Chef’s Table showrunner Andrew Fried takes a long, hard look at the American and Brazilian dudes who are crazy/brave enough to climb up onto a 1,500-pound bucking bull in front of a cheering crowd of spectators who are secretly hoping to see them trampled under hoof.


Fearless comes charging onto Netflix, nostrils flared, on August 19.
