While we all hold our collective breath worrying and waiting to learn the fate of “The Walking Dead’s” Daryl Dixon, we can all take a ride across the United States with Norman Reedus in AMC’s New Original Non-Fiction series,“ Ride With Norman Reedus”, premiering on June 12, at 10PM Et/Pt.
Reedus, who is a longtime motorcycle rider and enthusiast, will be taking on the open road, along with a different notable companion for each episode. Each installment will have him journeying to a new destination, exploring local biker culture and celebrating the best and brightest collectors, mechanics and craftsmen around the country. Some of his stops will include custom bike shops, tattoo parlors, collectors’ warehouses and even a roadside smokehouse.
Some of the friends he will traveling with include “Easy Rider” Peter Fonda, Robert Rodriguez and Balthazar Getty who will be traveling to places throughout the United States, including North Carolina, Florida, California, Nevada, Texas and Louisiana.
In a quote to USA TODAY, Reedus said – “It’s not like a chop-shop show. There’s a bit of that but it’s more of a travel experience: Let’s take this journey on motorcycles and meet people along the way. It’s very fun and interesting and we had a blast making it,” he says.
Make sure to watch “Fear The Walking Dead” this Sunday, April 24th, at 9pm ET/PT to check out a brand new series teaser for “Ride With Norman Reedus” that will air during the show.
The series is produced by Left/Right Productions.
