Spain’s annual Running of the Bulls draws participants from around the globe — and now Americans can watch it live on the Esquire Network.
In the net’s first-ever live original television event, “Running of the Bulls 2014” will feature eight straight nights’ coverage of the run, starting at 2-2:30 a.m. ET (tape-delayed on the West Coast) July 7 through Monday July 14 .
“Running of the Bulls” will be hosted by Guad Venegas, of Telemundo’s “Al Rojo Vivo con Maria Celeste,” and feature interviews with Joe Distler, the “Iron Man of Pamplona” who has done the run every year from 1967-2012, and John Hemingway, grandson of famed author Ernest Hemingway.
Twenty-five cameras have been placed along the route of the race, which runs along the streets of old town Pamplona through the Santo Domingo Corrals to the Plaza de Toros.
“Running of the Bulls” will be produced by Wilshire Studios, a division of NBCU Cable Entertainment.
