Travels with Darley follows five-time Daytime Emmy nominated TV host Darley Newman, the longtime host and creator of the popular Equitrekking series, as she travels with local residents and guides to inspiring, adventurous, and yes – even quirky, locations as they reveal the authenticity and appeal of their home area. These on-camera local counterparts are the true stars of each episode. Darley has a knack for getting locals to open up about their favorite spots and share their expertise – to reveal a richer and more authentic sense of place with all the sights, sounds, tastes, aromas, and adventures that can only be experienced when you travel like a local, not a tourist.
Travels with Darley is broadcast to over 94% of the USA on PBS TV stations and on Create TV, a Public Television lifestyle channel. Popular video shorts are updated weekly through Travels with Darley on AOL, MSN, Huffington Post, Amazon, DailyMotion and partner sites. Travels with Darley has been taking viewers on travel adventures with local people since 2014, when it launched as a web series with its own channel on AOL. In 2016, the show debuted on PBS stations with eight half-hour episodes, taking viewers through Europe, the Caribbean and the USA with host Darley Newman and a cast of local people. A second season launches late summer of 2016 on PBS stations with season three in production.
The series is produced by team behind the Equitrekking series, DCN Creative, a Washington, DC based multi-media production company with a roster of quality content that has been showcased through Scripps Networks, Starz Networks Encore Channels, PBS and international networks in over 85 countries.
