Norman Reedus Is Hitting the Road for New AMC Motorcycle Show
Daryl Dixon is taking a break from zombie slaying to explore America and motorcycle culture on a new show.
Norman Reedus is known for playing a motorcycle-loving outdoorsman in AMC’s hit show The Walking Dead, but it turns out the actor has a real passion for motorcycles. He and AMC are teaming up for Ride with Norman Reedus, a show that is one part travel and one part an exploration of motorcycle culture.
“It’s not a gearhead show where we’re talking about this and that,” Reedus tells Entertainment Weekly. “There’s a little bit of that, but it’s more of a journey. I take a person and we go on a journey, and we experience things together. They show me their town on motorcycles, and we explore new towns on motorcycles. It’s been a real gypsy-esque adventure that’s just a ton of fun.”
The 47-year-old TV star also said that the guests and destination heavily influence the tone of each individual episode, which keeps the viewing experience engaging.
“It’s really interesting to me to take someone and go on a ride with them and find out what that person is about, just because of the situations that we put ourselves in. Some are fun. Some are weird. Some are a little creepy, and it’s just been so much fun for me. It’s such an interesting concept, the way we’re doing it,” he says.
If you haven’t noticed, Reedus is flat-out loving his new project!
