The Hero Effect is an uplifting docuseries that brings to life the stories of ordinary individuals who are making extraordinary differences in their communities.

"When one person stands to make a difference, it inspires others to follow," says Super Bowl champion and co-host Donald Driver. "Together, we can change the world."
