AMC Networks announced today that its new travel/memoir series You Are Here, hosted by award-winning actor, writer and director Colman Domingo (Fear the Walking Dead, Bottomless Brunch at Colman’s, Euphoria), will premiere with its first two episodes on Monday, June 19 at 7:00pm EST on AMC, with the remaining two episodes airing Friday, June 30 at 7:00pm EST. Part of AMC Networks’ Content Room Originals, You Are Here takes viewers on intimate tours of the cities, places and hidden spots that hold special meaning in Domingo’s life story with four episodes dedicated to Savannah, Philadelphia, New York City and Chicago. The complete series will also be available on IFC, Sundance TV and WE tv beginning Friday, June 30, and on Tuesday, August 8, the series will launch across AMCN FAST Channels and on AMC+.
Throughout the series, Domingo revisits the locations pivotal to his growth as an artist and an individual, and the web of communities, people and found family who thrive there, and who lifted him up. He is joined by special guests including Fear the Walking Dead star Kim Dickens, Pulitzer Prize winning playwright James Ijames, five-time Tony Award winning director Susan Stroman, and Tony Award nominee Daniel Breaker, among others, as well as friends and family, local guides, and experts in each city.
The series is produced by Domingo’s Edith Productions alongside ZeroPointZero (Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown). It was created in partnership with Johnnie Walker – a brand that shares Domingo’s spirit of progress.
“It is my pleasure to partner with AMC Networks again on this personal journey that seeks to remind us all what we are made of,” said Domingo. “Sometimes we have to take a few steps backwards in order to grow into the next chapter of our lives. This four-part beginning shares some of my journey and the people who shaped me into the man I am today.”
“From Fear the Walking Dead to Bottomless Brunch, Colman has been a beloved member of our AMC Networks family, and with audiences around the world, for over a decade,” said Kevin Dreyfuss, head of franchise and content studio, AMC Networks. “As Content Room continues to work with our biggest franchises and fan-favorite talent, we are thrilled to continue our collaboration with Colman and Johnnie Walker on a brand new project exploring the cultures and communities that have shaped his life.”
You Are Here builds on AMC Networks’ successful Content Room slate of originals that feature its popular network talent and IP in a variety of formats and appear across the company’s full distribution ecosystem of linear networks, streaming services and digital/CTV platforms.
