Asian American-targeted cable net Myx TV has marked mid-September for the premiere of its reality travelogue series Discovering Routes.
Produced by ABS-CBN Global Studios in association with Go Button Media, the 8 x 22-minute program will follow “The Bucket List Family” blogger Garrett Gee (pictured, right) and his sister Miristi Gee (left) as they travel to the Philippines to explore their heritage.
The series will follow the Gee siblings to the sovereign island nation to experience local Filipino traditions and exotic tropical locales, including swimming in the Calamian Islands, harvesting rice in the Chocolate Hills of Bohol, and crafting guitars at the Alegre Guitar Factory on Cebu Island.
Gee rose to prominence when he sold his QR code technology Scan to Snapchat – which was then developed into Snapcode – for US$54 million in 2014. He went on to travel the world and share his and his family’s experiences via The Bucket List Family blog.
Discovering Routes debuts Sept. 12 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Myx TV, and will also be made available digitally via the Myx TV and ‘Discovering Routes’ websites as 20 eight-minute webisodes beginning Sept. 7.
Olivia de Jesus, Keesa Ocampo and Miguel Santos serve as executive producers.
“Our audience of multicultural millennials will see themselves in Filipino-American entrepreneur and world traveler Garrett Gee,” said Myx TV GM Miguel Santos in a statement. “Garrett and Miristi’s trip will inspire viewers to hop on a plane and journey back through their own history to find adventure and a greater understanding of themselves.”
