AMC Orders Motorcycle Travel Series ‘Ride with Norman Reedus’

AMC has given a six-episode order to an unscripted series featuring “Walking Dead” star Norman Reedus exploring motorcycle culture around the country.

Ride with Norman Reedus” hails from Left/Right Productions. Each hourlong episode will follow Reedus and a friend touring a different city via motorcycle and checking out bike shops, tattoo parlors, bars and restaurants frequented by chopper enthusiasts. Reedus’ companions will range from actors and artists to local bikers.

The series is targeted to air next year.

“There is nobody more passionate about motorcycles than Norman Reedus,” said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV.  “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.”

The series is one of a handful of unscripted programs on AMC’s schedule. The network last year scrapped plans to produce two unscripted projects that had received series orders. At the time the cabler said it would be selective in its approach to unscripted series while plowing more resources into its bread-and-butter scripted drama series.

Reedus’ stature as a star of the wildly popular “Walking Dead” makes “Ride” a natural fit for AMC.

“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.

Left/Right’s Ken Druckerman and Banks Tarver are exec producers.

“Norman’s interest in motorcycle culture and his natural ability to make friends wherever the road takes him are just two of the key ingredients that make this show so exciting for us,” said Druckerman.
