Commenting on the launch of The Open Road, Sanjay Raina, General Manager and Senior Vice-President of Fox Networks Groups (FNG), said: We are proud to present The Open Road, our first Fox Original Productions for the region. We believe that this series heralds a new era in entertainment for the Middle East. It reinforces our vision to bring world-class entertainment that is not only locally relevant, but locally produced. We bring to viewers an immersive experience that appeals to Arab youth who are hungry for exploration and adventure. For many, it will be seeing the region through fresh eyes and for others re-discovering it with a fresh perspective. The format we chose is universally appealing; yet its quintessentially Arab. The series comes at the perfect time where Arab women are increasingly celebrated, and with this series starring two young Arab female bikers, we celebrate their spirit of exploration and adventure as well. And Season 1 is just the beginning.
Series Producer and Managing Partner of Electric Films, Gemma Wale, who developed the series alongside Fox Networks Group said: The Open Road is a travel show like no other. Its honest and exciting, and whats best is the people we met along the way. As a woman I wanted to create something that I felt was empowering, of the moment and which I genuinely wanted to watch. And ultimately something that made the viewers want to jump off their seat and start their own adventures!.
The Open Road first season premieres October 13, on the following 11 channels: Fox, Fox Life, Fox Rewayat, Fox Family, Fox Crime, Fox Movies, FX, Fox Action , and on National Geographic Abu Dhabi as well as on Star Movies and Star World.
The premiere will also be simulcast on Facebook and YouTube.
