Kicked out of Tahrir Square, exposed to the realities of Middle East conflict, and buried alive in Arabian sands.
This is what it means to journey on the American Caravan.
American Caravan, our new reality documentary series and a sibling of Layalina and Visionaire Media's On The Road in America, follows the adventure of six young Americans travelling across the Arab Middle East and North Africa in the footsteps of the Arab Spring. The journey is at once enchanting and challenging, with cast members experiencing a region in the heart of turmoil, yet at the edge of a great new hope. American Caravan provides a deeper, more nuanced look at Arab life, culture, customs and hospitality that counters the negative representations and divisive stereotypes often perpetuated in the news.
American Caravan is a Visionaire Media production in association with Layalina Productions. It is created by Academy Award-nominated and multiple Emmy Award-winning producer Jerome Gary and by Leon Shahabian, Layalina's Vice President and Corporate Treasurer.
The series is expected to air on leading U.S. and Arab satellite networks in 2013.
