THE "RIDE" CONTINUES

AMC Renews Travel Docu-Series "Ride with Norman Reedus" Featuring Star of "The Walking Dead" for Second Season

NEW YORK, NY, September 23, 2016 - AMC today announced that it has renewed non-fiction travel series "Ride with Norman Reedus" for a second season, slated for 2017. Season two will consist of six one-hour episodes featuring "The Walking Dead" actor and motorcycle and travel enthusiast Reedus as he takes viewers back on the open road to journey to amazing places and sample local cultures.

Season one featured actor Balthazar Getty, filmmaker Robert Rodriguez, Mastodon singer/guitarist Brent Hinds, artist Jake Lamagno, custom bike builder Jason Paul Michaels, and artist/biker Imogen Lehtonen journeying to locales such as Death Valley, the Pacific Coast Highway, Appalachia, Louisiana, Texas, and the Florida Keys. Reedus and his guests took in the local flavor on their travels and went dune-buggying, rode the bike of the future, visited a moonshine distillery, met with a high voodoo priestess, and raced porta-potties. The season finale featured the legendary actor Peter Fonda, whose film Easy Rider first inspired Reedus to start riding motorcycles. Season one of "Ride," comprised of six episodes, averaged 800k total viewers per episode including 434k adults 25-54 in Nielsen live+7 ratings.

"We're so excited to continue this journey with Norman Reedus," said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV. "Norman's love of motorcycles and adventure, and his ability to connect with people are the drivers of this series, and we look forward to more great Rides next season."

"The reaction to 'Ride' has been incredibly positive. I am glad to be able to show audiences a different side of me and we have gotten a great response to the candid conversation and the fact that it's obviously not scripted," said Reedus. "I feel like we are just getting started and there are so many amazing places we have yet to go - the opportunities for the show are endless."

Norman Reedus is best known for starring as Daryl Dixon on AMC's worldwide sensation, "The Walking Dead," which starts its seventh season next month. "Ride with Norman Reedus" is produced by Left/Right Productions. Executive producers are Ken Druckerman, Banks Tarver, Anneka Jones ("This American Life," "The Circus: Inside The Greatest Political Show On Earth," "Odd Mom Out") and Norman Reedus.

This series is part of a growing slate of non-fiction programming on AMC including the #1 talk show on television, "Talking Dead," the Robert Redford produced event miniseries "The American West," the historical mafia docu-drama "The Making of the Mob: Chicago," Kevin Smith's late-night talk show "Geeking Out," and the upcoming documentary series "Heroes and Villains: The History of Comic Books," executive produced by Robert Kirkman and David Alpert.
