Plot Synopsis

Using re-creations, CGI maps, period stills, stock footage, first-person interviews, and commentary from the heroes themselves (when available), HARDCORE HEROES is a one-hour series that tells the tales of ordinary people with incredible loyalty, valor and bravery. Each 60-minute episode features stories about two inspirational people, including: author Ben Thompson, considered as the Internet's foremost expert on "badassitude" on his website; George Welch and Kenneth Taylor, two untested rookie pilots stationed near Pearl Harbor, who woke up to the Japanese attack on December 7, 1941; Air Force test pilot Joe Kittinger and military researcher Dr. John Stapp during the post-WWII race to soar to new aviation heights; and many more men and women who have death-defying tales of valor to tell. AHC: American Heroes Channel aired the U.S. premiere of HARDCORE HEROES on Wednesday, August 6, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT.
