Not Your Ordinary Travel Show – 2 Arab Women, 2 Motorbikes, 3 Countries, Anything Can Happen 

Dubai, UAE, October 31, 2018:  The much anticipated premiere of “The Open Road,” the first FOX Original Productions from the Middle East, an edgy new travel series starring two Arab women bikers riding on their own across UAE, Lebanon and Jordan, lands on your preferred screen on October 13. It will premiere simultaneously on an unprecedented line up of 11 channels across the region with simulcast on Facebook and YouTube. 

Unhindered by the limitations of four wheels, the trailblazing stars of the show, Chantal from the UAE and Pamela from Lebanon, break social and cultural barriers with a life-changing journey that creates, tests and deepens friendships.

In Season 1, the two women ride across areas of the UAE, Lebanon and Jordan that most viewers would not have known existed. We see them taking in jaw-dropping vistas, tasting authentic local cuisines, and taking part in death-defying experiences. 

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 it’s 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.”

As much as the series is about travel and exploration, it is also focused on the social interactions of Chantal and Pamela with the people in each country, including the biking community and locals they meet along the way. 

 “We are proud of the high entertainment and quality of ‘The Open Road’ series, which was produced locally, with a homegrown production company, Electric Films. I believe it matches international productions. With its exciting reality format starring two Arab women, strong and engaging narrative and stunning cinematography, we bring to regional viewers a new type of entertainment –with a bold, dynamic voice, expressing the modern aspirations of the region’s youth. It also carries on the timeless tradition of storytelling, which is deeply rooted in this region, and brings it to life in a thoroughly contemporary content format, ” said Alex El Chami, Head of Production and Executive Producer at Fox Networks Group and National Geographic Middle East

“The Open Road” first season premieres October 13, 2018 at 20:00 UAE / 19:00 KSA 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.
