Wonder, a Banijay Group company, has been commissioned by British commercial broadcaster ITV to produce a new travalogue featuring Scottish comedian and actor Billy Connolly.
Billy Connolly’s Great American Trail (3 x 60 minutes) will see Connolly (pictured) traveling through the U.S. to tell the story of Scottish people in America and their migratory journey.
He’ll start in Plymouth, Massachusetts, where the Mayflower pilgrims first landed, and finish in Nashville, Tennessee.
“This series will show a side to America and to Billy Connolly that has never been seen before,” said Reilly in a statement. “It is a privilege to be working with such an amazing talent, and to bring his unique view of the world to our screens.”
An air date has not yet been set.
