The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus to Star in New AMC Motorcycle-Themed Reality Series

Norman Reedus

Walking Dead fans have watched Norman Reedus ride a motorcycle for years as Daryl Dixon, and AMC is hoping that viewers will continue to follow Reedus, as himself, on a new show. The cable network has ordered Ride with Norman Reedus, a six-hour, motorcycle-themed reality series.

Ride with Norman Reedus  (which is currently just the show’s tentative title) will consist of six episodes, all slated to debut in 2016. The series “will follow actor and biker-enthusiast Reedus as he takes viewers on a ride on the open road to explore local motorcycle culture and its history and celebrate some of the best and brightest collectors, mechanics and motorcycle craftsmen around the country.”

AMC’s press release for the new series also explained that “each episode of Ride will begin in a different city where Reedus and his riding companion – 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 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,” said Reedus in a statement released by the network. “I had a lot of fun filming and exploring, and I hope it shows.”

“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. “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.”

Walking Dead fans, will you tune in for Ride with Norman Reedus, or would you rather just watch Daryl on his motorcycle? Comment below and let us know.
