The release continues, “Each episode of ‘Ride’ will begin in a different city where Reedus and his riding companion – a fellow actor, musician, friend, or local chopper fanatic who shares his passion for motorcycles – will journey to a new destination. Along the way, they will stop at various locales such as custom bike shops, tattoo parlors, collector’s warehouses, or a roadside smokehouse… with plenty of time for unplanned detours and tire changes.  The series will also showcase different types of motorcycles each week, including vintage, minis and cruisers.”

Some of Reedus’s guests will include notable figures in the indie film business, including Peter Fonda and Robert Rodriguez. As for who else he would have chosen to join him on the show, Reedus isn’t short on ideas.

“Evil Kneival would have been fun. He would have been great. There are tons of people. Lemmy from Motörhead would be a great one. There are so many cool people who ride motorcycles. Oh, Steve McQueen. If I could have met Steve McQueen and gone riding with him, bring him back, that would be incredible,” he said in a statement.

AMC has released a sneak-peek from the show, which will premiere June 12. Check out the video below.
