Norman Reedus just might actually be his badass, motorcycle-riding Walking Dead counterpart Daryl Dixon, which fans will see in his new AMC series, Ride with Norman Reedus.
The network announced that they’ve greenlit six one-hour episodes of the reality series which will follow Reedus around the country as he and a riding companion- a fellow actor, musician, friend, or local chopper fanatic who shares his passion for motorcycles- head to different destinations while stopping along the way 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.
“I’m incredibly excited and thankful to 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,” said Reedus.
“We love being the home of people’s passion projects, and there is nobody more passionate about motorcycles than Norman Reedus,” said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV in a statement. “He is an avid rider and aficionado who is deeply immersed in motorcycle culture. There is also nobody more fun to hang out with. This show will bring those two elements together for a weekly ride into the incredible world of motorcycles and the people who live and breathe them.”
Ride with Norman Reedus will premiere on AMC in 2016.
