AMC continues to ride the Walking Dead wave, ordering a new six-part, motorcycle-themed reality series starring fan favorite Norman Reedus.
Ride with Norman Reedus, which is slated to debut in 2016, “will follow actor and biker-enthusiast Reedus as he takes viewers on a ride on the open road to explore local motorcycle culture and its history and celebrate some of the best and brightest collectors, mechanics and motorcycle craftsmen around the country,” per the network’s official release, which went on to explain, “Each episode of Ride will begin in a different city where Reedus and his riding companion — a fellow actor, musician, friend, or local chopper fanatic who shares his passion for motorcycles — will journey to a new destination. Along the way, they will stop at various locales such as custom bike shops, tattoo parlors, collector’s warehouses, or a roadside smokehouse… with plenty of time for unplanned detours and tire changes. The series will also showcase different types of motorcycles each week including vintage, minis and cruisers.”
In a statement, Reedus thanked AMC “for giving me the opportunity to share a passion of mine with our fans, and hopefully a whole new audience. I had a lot of fun filming and exploring, and I hope it shows.”
Ride with Norman Reedus is EP’d by Ken Druckerman and Banks Tarver (Small Town Security).
