Schitt's Creek star Eugene Levy is set to host a new travel series for Apple TV+ dubbed The Reluctant Traveler, the streaming service has announced. The new show, which is yet to be given a release window, will be produced by Twofour and will see Levy executive produce alongside David Brindley.

The new show will join a growing lineup of docuseries and documentaries on Apple TV+, but this one is already sounding like it could be something of a sleeper hit.

"The Reluctant Traveler" will see Levy visit some of the world's most remarkable hotels, as well as explore the people, places and cultures that surround them. Self-confessedly not your average travel show host — he's not usually adventurous or well-versed in globe-trotting — he's agreed the time is right for him to broaden his horizons. Levy will be packing his suitcase with some trepidation but hoping his experiences might lead to a whole new chapter in his life — that's as long as he doesn't have to battle his motion sickness, and still gets dinner at 7.

Apple isn't saying when the new show will be on our screens but it's already one that I'm keen to check out. Apple TV+ continues to be some of the best value around, priced at just $4.99 per month.
