Watch the Intense Trailer for Fearless, Netflix’s Bull-Riding Docuseries

“It can be like a life lesson in front of your eyes,” says one of the bull-riders in the trailer for Netflix’s new six-part docuseries Fearless, premiering August 19. “It’s like you almost died.” That’s putting it lightly in Fearless’s first trailer, which Vulture is pleased to premiere, we see the riders thrust around, stepped on, and even crushed by the massive 1,500-pound bulls. So who in their right mind would possibly want to make a career out of this? Fearless gives an inside look at the crème de la crème of professional bull-riders as they journey through the American and Brazilian riding circuits in pursuit of the world title. And by honing in on the riders’ backgrounds and inspirations, you get a real sense of how intricate and tight-knit this riding community really is.
