Apple TV+ just released a first look at “Long Way Up,” an epic new motorcycle series, starring and executive produced by Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman. The show reunites best friends after more than a decade since their last motorbike adventure around the world. The first three episodes of “Long Way Up” premiere globally on Friday, September 18. Additional new episodes roll out weekly afterward.
The trip covers 13,000 miles over 100 days through 16 border crossings and 13 countries. Starting from the city of Ushuaia at the tip of South America, the journey takes you through the glorious and underexposed landscapes of South and Central America. Moreover, Charley and Ewan in use cutting edge technology on the backs of their electric Harley-Davidson LiveWire motorcycles. As a result they contribute to the sustainability of the planet.
The new series follows Ewan and Charley through Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and up through Colombia, Central America, and Mexico. They’re joined by longtime collaborators, directors David Alexanian and Russ Malkin. The directors follow on their electric Rivians.
“Long Way Up” is a new original series building on Ewan and Charley’s previous adventures in “Long Way Round” and “Long Way Down.”
The series joins an expanding lineup of acclaimed unscripted series and films. Among them, the recently announced “Fireball.” It’s an original feature documentary directed by Werner Herzog and Professor Clive Oppenheimer.
