Apple TV+ has ordered a new travel series, to be executive produced and hosted by Canada’s Eugene Levy. The news was announced Monday morning for the upcoming globe-trotting series, “The Reluctant Traveler.”
The synopsis of the travel series is below:
“The Reluctant Traveler” will see Levy visit some of the world’s most remarkable hotels, as well as explore the people, places and cultures that surround them. Self-confessedly not your average travel show host — he’s not usually adventurous or well-versed in globe-trotting — he’s agreed the time is right for him to broaden his horizons. Levy will be packing his suitcase with some trepidation but hoping his experiences might lead to a whole new chapter in his life — that’s as long as he doesn’t have to battle his motion sickness, and still gets dinner at 7.
Sounds like this could be the Apple TV+ version of Netflix’s Somebody Feed Phil, but with less emphasis on food.
The new series will be produced by UK-based Twofour. Levy will executive produce alongside David Brindley, BBC commissioner and Twofour’s chief creative officer.
