William Shatner (pictured) and Henry Winkler will star in the Bucket List-style NBC reality series Better Late Than Never.
Along with NFL analyst and former Pittsburgh Steeler Terry Bradshaw, boxer-turned-entrepreneur George Foreman and comic Jeff Dye, the veteran TV stars will set out on a journey across Asia “in search of an intimate, life-changing experience,” the network said in a statement.
The five men will travel without assistants or luxury comforts, take in the local cultures and cuisines and tick off items from their personal bucket lists, while supporting each other along the way.
Production will begin in August and take place in Tokyo, Kyoto, Seoul, Hong Kong, Bangkok and Chang Mai. The one-hour series will debut during the 2015-2016 season.
Universal Television is producing in association with Storyline Entertainment. Better Late Than Never is based on the series Grandpa Over Flowers, which airs in China and South Korea and is produced by CJ Entertainment.
Winkler, Jason Ehrlich, Tim Crescenti, and The Bucket List producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron are exec producing.
