The deal was agreed via BBC Studios’ Los Angeles production arm and follows Bones working with the company on unscripted travel series Breaking Bobby Bones, which is slated to debut on National Geographic Channel.

The 16-part series from BBC Studios follows Bones as he travels across the US to find people with unique jobs, skills, hobbies and abilities and attempts to learn the tricks of their trades.

The development deal also follows Bones working with BBC Studios’ Los Angeles arm when he became the mirrorball champion on Dancing With the Stars on ABC.

Bones’ “ability to connect with audiences is powerful, as he proved on Dancing With the Stars,” said Valerie Bruce, general manager of BBC Studios, Los Angeles Productions. “Bobby Bones is a creative force in his own right.”

Under the deal, Bones will be able to continue in his role as an official in-house mentor on American Idol and to work with iHeartRadio, where The Bobby Bones Show is broadcast to more than 170 radio stations across the US.
