Earlier this month, Ovation announced the first original Journy production, Chasing the Sun – Series 2. Chasing the Sun follows adventure-seeker, and filmmaker, Stephen Friedman (host and creator of successful Fox Networks TV travel show The Blueprint) as he captures the story of the places he visits through the people of each destination. As the locals tell their story, Stephen uses each experience to rediscover why we are all born to explore. In the new season co-produced with JOURNY, Stephen will travel throughout Asia, including stops in Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia, South Korea, Hong Kong, Japan, India, and Sri Lanka.
“It’s been an incredible and humbling experience producing and hosting Chasing the Sun, and JOURNY has been an enthusiastic supporter of the show. We are very excited to have them [Ovation] in our corner for Season Two. Our approach to Chasing The Sun is far more unique than any other out there in this space. The team at Journy and Ovation saw our vision and were quick to be part of it. We are going back to the roots of storytelling and travel. With the backdrop of Asia as our canvas, we couldn’t ask for a better scenario to push the limits and capture something truly amazing.”
As Executive Producer on the project, I’m happy to be a part of this production! Principle photography begins next month, and the program is set to premiere later this year on Journy. Save Your Day Films and Stephen Friedman has been fantastic to work with and I can’t wait to see the final product. We’re still open to partnerships and with travel brands and digital publishers.
