Disney+ orders Rogue Trip series
June 19, 2020
Taking viewers on a globetrotting adventure with ABC News Correspondent Bob Woodruff and his son Mack, the Disney+ original series “Rogue Trip” will premiere with all episodes available on July 24th.
The six-part show from National Geographic follows the two as they embark on an epic journey to some of the world’s most unexpected places – roguish nations and regions mostly known for conflict – and find themselves hiking, rappelling down waterfalls with former rebel fighters and diving and parasailing their way through some of the most gorgeous and surprising places in the planet.
“Rogue Trip” is a story about second chances and the undying bond between a father and son. As a former war correspondent who was severely injured by a roadside bomb while reporting in Iraq in 2006, Bob Woodruff did not want his kids to grow up fearful just because of what happened to him. Bob has seen, and lived, through the worst of what these places have to offer, and now he and Mack explore the best in them. Along the journey, viewers will share the raw, big-hearted moments when ‘going rogue’ together changes the Woodruffs’ perspective – not just in other people and places, but in their own relationship.
“I couldn’t be more excited to share this series with viewers around the world,” said Bob Woodruff. “This is an adventure of a lifetime to be with Mack discovering together how every place on the planet has the power to surprise, amaze and inspire, despite its past.”
Throughout the six-episodes, Bob and Mack will venture on off-the-guidebook tours in their visits to Colombia, Papua New Guinea, Ethiopia, Pakistan, Lebanon and Ukraine.
