I recently heard about a new show starting on CBS that may just be good for the soul. And because it promises to be something we can watch together as a family on a Saturday morning, I just had to share it with you!

It’s called Chicken Soup for the Soul’s Hidden Heroes and features everyday heroes in action to promote kindness, compassion and to be used as a tool against bullying. It premiers tomorrow, October 3rd and will join the Saturday morning CBS DREAM TEAM, IT’S EPIC! lineup.
Hosted by Brooke Burke-Charvet, Mom to Follow
This weekly half-hour series will air on the CBS Network over a 52 week broadcast schedule and is hosted by actress Brooke Burke-Charvet, one of Forbes’ Magazine’s Top 25 Working Moms to Follow. She guides us, the viewers, as the show reveals the untapped reservoir of good, kindness and compassion hidden throughout our world.
The show, which includes user-generated content, 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. These books were made, with the support of The Boniuk Foundation, from thousands of stories specifically selected to build character, promote kindness, and encourage compassion, especially as a tool against bullying. Each episode of Chicken Soup for the Soul’s Hidden Heroes features three hidden camera scenarios that capture everyday heroes in action in a highly entertaining and interactive format.
Stories range from Basketball Bullies to Inspiration Station, Marine Who Surprises His Sister, Homeless Prom and many, many more uplifting segments that bring feel-good television to kids and adults alike.
Mark your calendars for October 3rd! This should be good!
