Rite of Passage

Season 1 Overview

Multi-award winning producer, reporter and cameraman Tim Noonan,  embarks on a journey of self-discovery as he tries to unlock what it means to be a man. Each week, Noonan will seek out communities in the world’s harshest locales, immerse himself in the culture, and participate in the extreme rituals that define the transition to manhood.  He finds himself taming a wild bucking bronco, amongst the anaconda infested plains of Venezuela, bonding with tribesman of the Siberian Tundra, venturing out on a dangerous crocodile hunt on the Bijagós Islands of Guinea Bissau, and in Cameroon, West Africa, crawling headfirst into the lair of a giant rock python to wrestle the monster snake from its den. Ultimately he discovers that no matter where we are, there are common themes to which we can all relate.
