The premiere of ‘Ride with Norman Reedus’ is anticipated by many. Whether you’re a fan of zombie TV shows or simply fascinated by famous people who ride off-screen, chances are you will be glued to the TV once the premiere starts rolling.
Announced late last year, the AMC six part series will follow the motorcycle adventures of actor Norman Reedus, known for his role of crossbow zombie killer Daryl on the extremely popular ‘The Walking Dead’. Each hour long episode takes viewers on a ride to explore local motorcycle culture and history, celebrating some of the best and brightest collectors, mechanics and motorcycle craftsmen around the country.
‘Ride With Norman Reedus’ will begin in a different city where Reedus and his riding companion, who could be a fellow actor, musician, friend or local chopper fanatic who shares his passion for motorcycles, will journey to a new destination. Along the way, they will stop 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 promises to showcase different types of motorcycles each week including vintage, minis and cruisers. Speaking of vintage, the very first episode kicks the mini-season off with a motorcycle legend.
None other than Peter Fonda will co-star in the first episode as he and Reedus ride down to the Florida Keys. Fonda who appeared with Reedus in ‘The Boondock Saints II’ will show off his favorite spots along the way.
“Hopefully Paul will be waiting for me at the Alamo with a Pee-wee Herman bike so we can ride around,” Reedus told The Hollywood Reporter.
And while fans of Norman Reedus will enjoy the title of the show, ‘Ride With Norman Reedus’ the Walking Dead actor, not so much.
“We are still figuring it out. I’d like to keep my name off of it and just have it be Ride, but there seems to be a lot of projects called ‘Ride,’ ” he said.
