The series will follow Ewan and Charley as they ride through Latin American countries, including Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, and Mexico:

Covering 13,000 miles over 100 days through 16 border crossings and 13 countries, starting from the city of Ushuaia at the tip of South America, Ewan and Charley journey through the glorious and underexposed landscapes of South and Central America in their most challenging expedition to date, using cutting edge technology on the backs of their electric Harley-Davidsons - "LiveWire" in order to contribute to the sustainability of the planet.

"Long Way Up" will serve as a sequel to Ewan and Charley's previous motorcycle adventures in "Long Way Round" and "Long Way Down," which aired on British networks Sky One and BBC Two respectively in the mid 2000s.

Many of the Apple TV+ shows that get announced get poo-pooed on here for one reason or another.

If this show is anything like it’s BBC-produced predecessors then it should definitely be worth watching. Charlie and Ewan have great chemistry and the travel element of the original shows was really interesting.

I like the diversification of tv+ content. Not everything is something I'll watch, but it'll attract a wide range of viewers to the platform, raising its profile and creating momentum for even more great content.

I can see some missing niches that I'd like to see filled. An Anthony Bourdain style food/travel show made in the same style as HOME, would be fantastic.

Apple should really look into adding live sports. While they're not going to outbid the established sports giants, an opportunity may be emerging with The Rock's acquisition of the XFL. Before COVID hit, the XFL 2.0 was getting good reviews from sports fans. If Apple were to cut a deal with Dwayne Johnson to be the face of the XFL, streaming on tv exclusively, I can see it doing well.
