On the Road in America

, ,

I just became aware of a television show that apparently aired on the Sundance Channel called "On the Road in America", a combination of "Road Rules" and a public diplomacy project to send Arab youth to the United States to instill greater faith in the American image in a time when the US is having a rebranding crisis in the Middle East.

I found out about the program through a National Public Radio interview called "Arab Men Challenge Perceptions while 'On the Road'" on the show Tell Me More with two of the castmates from the first season. The trailer for Season 1 (2007) can be found below, as well as the trailer for Season 2 (2009), which apparently features a 29 year old Kuwaiti, who would like to meet "American Bedouins".
