On the Road in America (Ala al Tariq fy Amrika) is a reality travelogue series, with each of the three seasons featuring a diverse and dynamic cast of young Arabs traveling on their first visit across the United States. The cast members take part in “typical” American experiences and gain insights into formative events that shaped American culture. Through the prism of the cast’s perceptions, this entertaining and informative series debunks stereotypes and pre-conceived notions about Americans that are widely held by Arabs and vice versa while fostering cross-cultural exchange and understanding.
The third season of the successful On the Road in America franchise continues the exposé of four young Arabs road tripping across the United States. Featuring Karim and Tanya from Lebanon, Dalia from Egypt, and Diyaa who was born in Saudi Arabia, this season captured cast members discovering America for the first time whilst also grappling with the unfolding events of the Arab Spring back home. From Boston to San Francisco, this season takes a specific look at four themes regularly asked about the United States in the Arab World: education, work, the Muslim-American experience and freedom.
On the Road in America is a Layalina Production in association with Visionaire Media of Los Angeles. Academy Award-nominated and multiple Emmy award-winning producer Jerome Gary is the series’ creator, director and executive producer.
The third season is currently awaiting its broadcast premiere on pan-Arab television.
