Why have some of the world's most influential people been able to make it big in their fields? Breaking Big explores how some of today's most compelling artists, innovators, athletes and political leaders pushed, prodded and cajoled the major opportunities that would make their careers. Twelve talented men and women, from country music superstar Jason Aldean and actress Danai Gurira to Oscar-winning director Lee Daniels and chef and restaurateur Eddie Huang, recount the nearly insurmountable obstacles and long odds they faced to reach and reimagine their own potential and, ultimately, to break big. Their stories are deepened by eminent social scientists, marketing experts, film critics, book editors and many others who assess the risk-taking and bold moves these journeys required. Breaking Big features Trevor Noah, Eddie Huang, Danai Gurira, Jason Aldean, Ruth Zukerman, Christian Siriano, Roxane Gay, Michael Strahan, Senator Kristen Gillibrand, Lee Daniels, Gretchen Carlson, and Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz. Hosted by Emmy Award®-winning journalist Carlos Watson.
