(Los Angeles) – Actor Jason Momoa (“Game of Thrones,” “Aquaman,” “Dune”) has blazed a path of his own in Hollywood, fearlessly taking on new challenges and roles as an artist. Today, Discovery announced it has ordered the all-new documentary series ON THE ROAM (w/t) following Momoa as he searches for the fearless artists and dreamers who are the masters of their craft.
“We are so thrilled to welcome Jason to the Discovery family! He brings such fresh curiosity and has a magnetic pull to those who’ve become masters of their craft,” said Nancy Daniels, Chief Brand Officer, Discovery & Factual. “This is a series about finding your personal inspiration through exploration and immersing yourself in other people’s passions and processes. I’m incredibly excited for viewers to follow Jason’s quest and learn with him along the way.”
"On the Roam is an endless quest for me to discover extraordinary people and places. I'm thrilled to be collaborating with Discovery on this journey," said Momoa.
Produced by production company On the Roam, the series follows Momoa as he travels across the country to meet the extraordinary individuals blazing their own path - from craftsmen, to motorcycle fabricators, musicians to athletes. Momoa has spent his entire life taking the road less traveled and surrounding himself with men and women like those masters of their own passion who are introduced in the series, individuals on an endless quest to make a difference in their field and the lives around them. In engaging with those who share his love and passion for the craft, he explores not just their unique trade or skill, but a deeper way of seeing the world through their eyes. It is a journey of intention – an endless quest with purpose and celebrating those who make a difference in the world around them.
ON THE ROAM (w/t) is produced for Discovery Channel by On the Roam. For On the Roam Jason Momoa and Brian Andrew Mendoza are executive producers. For Discovery, Howard Swartz, Joseph Boyle, and Kyle Wheeler is executive producer.
