National Geographic Channels International (NGCI) and Travel Channel are undertaking a coproduction with KEO Films for the five-part series Meet the Natives USA. The series, which will follow five ambassadors from the South Pacific island Tanna as they voyage to the U.S. to deliver the message of peace to Washington, will be a follow up to the award winning 2007 series Meet the Natives which aired on NGCI and Channel 4. While in the U.S., the visitors will visit various states to experience a variety of American lifestyles, such as that of cowboys in Montana or socialites in New York. Meet the Natives USA will air on Travel Channel in America November 22 and NGCI will screen the program in other territories later this month. KEO Films has also been commissioned to produce a recap episode and a sneak preview for the Travel Channel.
