TRAVEL TV SHOW TEASER (Republic of Georgia)

Oct 26, 2012 7.4K Views 29 Comments

Motley Planet is a new global travel TV show that journeys to less known corners of the globe to look beyond politics and stereotypes, spontaneously connect with locals, and capture life away from the headlines.

This is accomplished without a safety net: i.e. fixers (prearranged help) on the ground hotel reservations, or a planned route. Nothing is scripted or staged; all interactions are genuine; connections happen on a spontaneous street level. The challenges, roadblocks and palpable euphoria of achieving this are integral to the show.

Motley Planet exposes events like a rambunctious rock band in the Republic of Georgia, a vodka-fueled Islamic wedding in Uzbekistan, or a coca-cola party with college students in Syria.

Motley Planet is the connection that shines on humanity: people’s aspirations, enjoyment, fears, hopes and interests. Motley Planet exposes different cultures in a spontaneous, entertaining, and refreshingly unfamiliar way.
