UHD 4K broadcaster and producer Insight TV has expanded its content partnership with Monster Energy for a docuseries featuring elite athletes.

Produced by Velocity, the 13-episode series Born To looks at athletes at the top of their game. Each episode will follow the personal story of the ups and downs that elite athletes face. The series includes the story of Sweden’s Emma Dahlstrom, a freestyle skier who faced a couple of untimely knee injuries but went on to win the 2015 Winter X Games. In the show, Dahlstrom shares what it takes to overcome injuries and how to get back to the top.

Born To is scheduled to launch later this year on Insight TV channels and Insight.TV.

Elsewhere, Insight TV is prepping its surf show, Chasing Monsters for the fall.

The 10-part series, produced by The Go Big Project, offers an exclusive look into the lives of big wave surfers as they pursue the storms of the El Nino season while also navigating their personal lives. Chasing Monsters follows the surfers as they push the limits of the human spirit while dealing with storm forecasts, surf reports and travel chaos.

The show features a number of big names including Albee Layer, Ben Wilkinson, Keali’I Mamala, Niccoló and Francisco Porcella, Trevor Carlson, Will and Cliff Skudin, Aaron Gold and many more, as well as up-and-coming talent Brad Domke, a professional skimboarder.

Chasing Monsters will launch in September 2018, on Insight TV channels and Insight.TV.
