DESCRIPTION: (from The CW's press release, April 2014) The original half-hour comedy BACKPACKERS premieres Monday, July 14 (8:30-9:00 pm ET), following all-new episodes of WHOSE LINE. Originally created as a digital series for The CW's digital studio, CW Seed, BACKPACKERS, follows best friends Ryan (Noah Reid, "Titanic") and Brandon (Dillon Casey, "Nikita") as they race across Europe in search of Ryan's missing bride-to-be, while also struggling with the eternal twenty-something question of what to do with their lives. When Ryan's lost journal suddenly gets posted online and explodes across the internet, Ryan's life dream of becoming a published author becomes real - if only he can track down the jerk who stole the journal. With Brandon's slacker brother Andrew (Giacomo Gianniotti, "Reign") in tow, they travel from Thailand to Canada in search of the missing journal, while also seeking the ultimate answers to life, love and partying. BACKPACKERS is produced by Shaftesbury U.S. and Smokebomb Entertainment, Shaftesbury's award-winning digital media arm, in association with The CW Television Network. Developed for television and produced by Jay Bennett, BACKPACKERS is executive produced by Maggie Murphy, Christina Jennings, Scott Garvie and Tom Mazza.
