In this new special Alan will head to the north of England, leaving behind his comfortable existence, for a personal journey of redemption. Per the synopsis, “With his Land Rover and his dog, he journeys into an unreported Britain inhabited by the very people he had offended to ask whether, in this once united kingdom, a ‘schasm’ has formed – a schism or chasm, between the haves and the have-nots (or haven’ts).”
The presenter will live among everyday people in hopes to understand them, see the world through their eyes and ultimately become a better citizen, man and more sought-after broadcaster.
The film is produced by Ted Dowd and Dave Lambert and written by Rob Gibbons, Neil Gibbons and Coogan. Seeso also announced that the Andy Richter special “Home for the Holidays” will also debut on the streaming network on December 20.
