What would you do if someone you loved received a Death Threat?
Call in the professionals and have it diffused! The threat, in this case is the state of men's health in New Zealand - Time to call in Buck!

Buck Shelford has been through some gutsy battles in his time and now the All Black legend is teaming up with New Zealander of the Year Dr Lance O'Sullivan, Professor Grant Schofield from AUT's Human Potential Centre and Nutritionist Hereni Marshall to overhaul the state of kiwi men's health.

The threats to men's health in this country are essentially the same for people the world over - Obesity, type two diabetes, heart disease, stress, cancer etc. But for men the real risk lies in the lack of diagnosis.

Men in New Zealand tend to avoid doctors, ignore early symptoms, steer clear of regular exercise and put off check ups. Death Threat sets out to change this behavior and get our men to recognize these potentially fatal outcomes before it's too late.

Death Threat is a health makeover series for real men.

Buck Shelford, one of the toughest men on and off the rugby field is on a mission to get men to front up and take care of themselves, but like Buck, most men think they are bulletproof...

This is why Death Threat relies on the friends or family of the men involved to come forward and ask for help, help to get their loved ones to 'buck up' and do something to change their lives for the better.

Each half hour episode focuses on one individual and one medical condition. Each threat will be different, and each will require a different intervention and makeover if the potentially fatal outcome is to be avoided.
