A few more exclusive originals coming to the U.S. product in 2021 will include:

  • Route 66: From Executive Producer Will Packer and Hartbeat Productions, Route 66 features Kevin Hart hitting the road, going along America’s famous Route 66 to see what’s going on with America. He will visit people and places and bring along friends in an exploration of the U.S. heartland from Chicago to LA.
  • Pushing the Line: Imagine walking a thin, nylon line of rope stretched across a 900-foot gorge. For a select few, each day on the line, they push themselves and each other to do something bigger, crazier, harder than anyone’s ever done before. And each night, their campsite is a party where anything and everything goes. Day and night, it’s all about pushing the line.
  • Planet Snoop (working title): This new series will feature Snoop Dogg, who will be joined by a rotating group of wildlife and nature experts to break down unbelievable footage showcasing our planet, pets and natural phenomena.
