Chantal is from the UAE, Pamela is from Lebanon, and they share one goal: to go on a two-wheeling adventure across the Middle East. The new travel TV series, Open Road follows the duo on their journey across the UAE, Lebanon, and Jordan on their motorcycles — and all of the beautiful experiences that ensue. Set to air on October 13, the much-anticipated premiere will be broadcasted across 11 channels in the region along with being streamed on Facebook and YouTube.
The TV show would be the first local production to be aired on Fox Life; one amongst three new channels announced by 21st Century Fox last month.
“The Open Road is a travel show like no other,” says series producer of the TV series, Gemma Wale. Not only does it document the trailblazing stars in less-explored areas, tasting authentic local food and taking part in death-defying experiences, it also showcases their social interactions with people in each country, including the locals and the biking community. And they do it as two women.
“The series comes at the perfect time where Arab women are increasingly celebrated, and with this series starring two young Arab female bikers, we celebrate their spirit of exploration and adventure as well. And Season 1 is just the beginning.” said Sanjay Raina, general manager of Fox Networks, in a statement.
Award-winning UAE-based production company, Electric Films, released a trailer for the show that you won’t want to skip out on.
