Apple TV+ today announced that “The Reluctant Traveller,” a new globe-trotting travel series hosted and executive produced by Emmy Award winner Eugene Levy (“Schitt’s Creek”), will premiere globally on 24 February 2023. The eight-episode series follows Levy as he visits some of the world’s most beautiful and intriguing destinations in Costa Rica, Finland, Italy, Japan, Maldives, Portugal, South Africa and the United States, exploring remarkable hotels and the places and cultures surrounding them.
Self-confessedly not your typical travel show host — he’s not usually adventurous or well-versed in globe-trotting, 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 Traveller” is produced for Apple TV+ by Twofour. In addition to starring, Levy executive produces alongside David Brindley.
“The Reluctant Traveller” joins a growing lineup of acclaimed and award-winning docuseries on Apple TV+, including the acclaimed documentary series “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.
