Chicken Soup for the Soul’s Hidden Heroes, hosted by Brooke Burke-Charvet, is a multi-award winning series and is currently in its second season on CBS. During the first season, the show averaged approximately one million viewers per original episode and received multiple prestigious awards. With lighthearted moments sprinkled throughout, the show shines a bright light on everyday people selflessly sharing their positive attitudes towards society and life by doing good deeds and making positive choices.
The show is based in part on three Chicken Soup for the Soul books created with The Boniuk Foundation: Chicken Soup for the Soul: Be the Best You Can Be; Chicken Soup for the Soul: Create Your Best Future; and Chicken Soup for the Soul: Raising Great Kids. The stories in these books were specifically selected to build character, promote kindness and encourage compassion, especially as a tool to prevent bullying. Each episode of Chicken Soup for the Soul’s Hidden Heroes features three segments that capture everyday heroes in action in a highly entertaining and interactive format.
Chicken Soup for the Soul’s Hidden Heroes won several awards in 2016, including a Parents’ Choice Award and three Telly Awards – Bronze: Education; Bronze: Children’s Programming; and Bronze: Social Responsibility. In 2017, the show also won a Parents’ Choice Award. The series premiered in October 2015 and is currently airing its second season on CBS. Find CBS local listings for season two.
