Today at the 2023 Winter Television Critics Association press tour, Apple TV+ debuted the trailer for “The Reluctant Traveler,” a new, eight-episode globe-trotting travel series hosted and executive produced by Emmy Award winner Eugene Levy (“Schitt’s Creek”) that is set to premiere around the world on Friday, February 24, 2023.
“The Reluctant Traveler” follows Levy as he visits some of the world’s most beautiful and intriguing destinations, experiencing thrilling local adventures with new friends, including immersing in a sound bath in the Maldives, ice floating in Finland, connecting with the Navajo Nation in Utah, captaining a sailboat in Lisbon, taking a bite out of the culinary culture of Tokyo, and journeying into the Costa Rican jungle. Along the way, Levy also stays in remarkable hotels, including the historic Gritti Palace in Venice and a train hotel suspended above Kruger National Park in South Africa.
Self-confessedly not your typical travel show host — he’s not usually adventurous or well-versed in exploring the world, Levy agrees the time is finally right for him to broaden his horizons. Levy packs his suitcase with some trepidation but hopes his experiences might lead to a whole new chapter in life, even if it means confronting some of his long-held fears. Join him as he buckles up for the ultimate eye-opening adventure!
“The Reluctant Traveler” is produced for Apple TV+ by Twofour and is executive produced by Levy and David Brindley.
The series will premiere alongside highly anticipated Apple Originals also set to make their global debut this winter and spring on Apple TV+, including “Truth Be Told” season three, “Dear Edward,” “Hello Tomorrow!,” “Liaison,” “Swagger” season two and more.
“The Reluctant Traveler” also joins a growing lineup of acclaimed and award-winning docuseries on Apple TV+, including the recently premiered “Super League: The War for Football”; “The Big Conn,” featuring the biggest social security fraud in history; award-winning documentary event “Prehistoric Planet,” featuring Oscar-nominated narrator Sir David Attenborough; “Make or Break,” the World Surf League docuseries; the Emmy Award-nominated elevated home-design docuseries “Home”; Emmy Award-nominated modern warfare docuseries “The Line”; the acclaimed Emmy Award-nominated four-part documentary series “They Call Me Magic,” chronicling the life and career of two-time NBA Hall of Famer and cultural icon Earvin “Magic” Johnson; Emmy Award-nominated docuseries “Watch the Sound with Mark Ronson”; and the documentary event “Gutsy,” with executive producers and hosts Hillary and Chelsea Clinton as they take us on an intimate journey to meet some of the world’s most extraordinary women.
