McGregor, Boorman Go Long Way with Bravo


Actors Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman will star in and co-produce new Bravo series Long Way Round.

The series will chronicle their four-month transcontinental journey by motorcycle in six one-hour episodes, the network said.

McGregor and Boorman are currently training in the United Kingdom. They will begin their journey in late April starting in London, and they plan to arrive at their final destination of New York by the end of July. The journey will be made by motorbike, with one train, plane and boat to get them across the seas.

"We live in such a comfortable and easy time that it doesn't do yourself any harm to go and test yourselves and survive with just the bare essentials," McGregor said in a prepared statement. "This is something that I've always wanted to do: It's a challenge."
