Ch4 Commission New Four Part Travelogue with Chris McCausland

Thrilled to announce that Channel 4 have commissioned Open Mike Productions, the award-winning production company behind ‘Live At The Apollo’ and ‘The Last Leg’, to produce a brand new comedy travelogue series starring comedian Chris McCausland.

‘THE WONDERS OF THE WORLD THAT I CAN’T SEE’ (w/t) is a 4×60 series that takes Chris across the globe to explore some of the world’s most iconic, unforgettable world landmarks, but in a new and unique way that discovers things the ordinary traveller might miss.

In each episode, reluctant traveller Chris will be joined by a different special celebrity guest as his travelling companion. As well as providing a humorous ‘audio description’ of their surroundings for him, the celebrity companions will do their best to prove to Chris that there’s much more to visiting these places than just what they look like, by engaging their other senses. Will they manage to convince him that it was worth getting off his couch after all?

Chris McCausland said: “I hate flying, don’t function in the heat, and can’t eat anything weird. If I’m honest, I just wanted to do Gogglebox. But thanks to Channel 4 and Open Mike for having more faith in me than I do.”

Phil Harris, Head of Entertainment and Live Events at Channel 4: “I’m excited to build on Chris’s scene stealing appearances on The Last Leg and 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown with this new adventure. We’re proud to be the home of his first entertainment series and look forward to growing his presence on Channel 4.”

Locations and comedians taking part in THE WONDERS OF THE WORLD THAT I CAN’T SEE (w/t) will be announced in due course.
