NEW YORK (June 27, 2016) – Award-winning actor, Jon Cryer, sets flight for a journey that tops his bucket list in the first installment of Travel Channel’s new series of specials, “Celebrity Adventure Club,” premiering on Friday, July 1 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT. In each hour-long feature, Travel Channel hands the camera to some of the world’s biggest stars and asks them to explore what compels and inspires them, taking viewers along as they travel around the world on an intimate adventure of discovery and exploration.
In the premiere, Cryer – an avid space enthusiast – suits up for a trip to the global hubs of all space activity: Washington, D.C., Houston and Russia. In each location, Cryer delves into the world of space travel firsthand, meeting with real-life astronauts at iconic locations such as NASA Headquarters, the Johnson Space Center and Russia’s Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center. Cryer gains a deeper understanding of space programs and experiences firsthand the same exercises that American astronauts and Russian cosmonauts undergo for their missions – including zero gravity training, spending time inside Space Station and Space Shuttle mock-ups and testing his body’s limits in a centrifuge. Cryer gets a true feel for Russian culture as he experiences a celebratory parade replete with tanks and vodka, explores the busy streets of Moscow and samples local cuisine.
“For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a deep fascination for space travel,” says Cryer. “I grew up in the ’60s watching the Americans race the Russians for superiority in space. It fueled my imagination 100 percent and it still does.”
“Celebrity Adventure Club” is executive produced by Emmy award-winning Mark Herzog and Christopher G. Cowen for Herzog & Company.”
