Available Only on DIRECTV and AT&T U-verse

AT&T* AUDIENCE Network is planning a new original series, “Fear{less} with Tim Ferriss” featuring bestselling author, entrepreneur, and renowned investor Tim Ferriss.

The show spotlights in-depth, long-form conversations between Ferriss and world-class performers, focusing on how they’ve overcome fears, made hard decisions, and won at the highest levels imaginable. From icons to lesser-known phenoms, the show will uncover tactics and strategies that work in the real world.  Ferriss himself is no stranger to achievement, with millions of devoted followers of his podcast and books.

Filmed in front of a live audience and executive produced by Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Productions, “Fear{less} with Tim Ferriss” will inspire audiences around the world. It focuses on embracing discomfort, thinking big, and carving your own unique path.

Production begins this month, with a 2017 premiere date coming soon.

Ferriss is one of Fast Company’s “Most Innovative Business People,” one of Forbes’s “Names You Need to Know,” and one of Fortune’s “40 under 40.” He is the author of 3 No. 1 New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestsellers: The 4-Hour Workweek, The 4-Hour Body, and The 4-Hour Chef. Ferriss is called “the Oprah of audio” due to the influence of The Tim Ferriss Show podcast, which has exceeded 100 million downloads and was selected for "Best of iTunes" in 2015, and his latest book is Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers.

“I’m thrilled to be working with people who’ve mastered the visual elements of storytelling,” said Tim Ferriss. “Fear{less} is an incredible opportunity to explore the minds of some of the most impressive people on the planet, and I can’t wait to show audiences the reality of greatness: it’s achieved through discomfort, stumbling, and hard decisions. You don’t succeed because you have no weaknesses; you succeed because you learn to uncover strengths and leverage them. It’s a coachable skill.”

“As a big fan of Tim, we're excited to be a part of sharing what he does so well with AT&T's AUDIENCE Network,” said Vince Vaughn of Wild West Productions.

“Tim Ferriss’ unique ability to deconstruct icons on his podcast is what led us to this exciting collaboration,” said Christopher Long, head of AUDIENCE Network. “This is our second project with Wild West Productions (Undeniable with Joe Buck), who have proven themselves as experts at turning smart content into entertainment.”

DIRECTV and U-verse customers will be able to watch “Fear{less} with Tim Ferriss” and the rest of AUDIENCE Network’s line-up on U-verse Channel 1114 and DIRECTV Channel 239. They can also live stream it on the DIRECTV App and U-verse App for smartphones and tablets, directv.com and uverse.com.**
