Hidden Heroes - Surprise Encounters

Inspired by amazing stories from the Chicken Soup for the Soul best-selling book series, our hidden cameras roll as a young mother convinces passers-by to help her carry a stroller up steep steps while her husband talks on his cell phone. Strangers give a young man a water break and help him with his tough job to sell cookies that are “out of this world.” An adult yoga class is surprised by their newest teacher, a nine-year-old yogi, who helps them connect with their “inner child.”

Chicken Soup for the Soul's Hidden Heroes. Hidden cameras capture good deeds performed by heroes in action. Hosted by Brooke Burke.

Chicken Soup for the Soul’s Hidden Heroes is a multi-award winning series and is currently in its fourth season. This series 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 promote kindness and encourage compassion. Each episode of Chicken Soup for the Soul’s Hidden Heroes reveals the widespread goodwill in the world by showing heroes in action as they demonstrate acts of kindness, compassion, and commitment to others.  Chicken Soup for the Soul’s Hidden Heroes has won two Parent’s Choice Awards, three Telly Awards, and was nominated for a Daytime Emmy award.
