NBC SETS PREMIERE FOR COMEDY EVENT SERIES ‘BETTER LATE THAN NEVER’
Henry Winkler, William Shatner, Terry Bradshaw and George Foreman Begin Their Asian Journey Tuesday, Aug. 23 at 10 p.m.
NBC is taking five celebrated men from across genres on an epic adventure throughout Asia with its new alternative comedy series “Better Late Than Never.”
Award-winning actor, producer, writer and director Henry Winkler (“Royal Pains”), Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning actor, director and writer William Shatner (“The Practice”), celebrated football legend and NFL analyst Terry Bradshaw (“Fox NFL Sunday”), boxing Hall of Famer and gold medal winner-turned businessman George Foreman and comedian Jeff Dye (NBC’s “I Can Do That”) will embark on the ultimate international excursion with no assistants, no limousines and no lattes, in search of an intimate life-changing experience.
The one-hour series will travel to Tokyo and Kyoto, Japan; Seoul, South Korea; Hong Kong; and Phuket and Chiang Mai, Thailand before heading home. The five will navigate their way through each city — communicating with the local population, immersing themselves in local traditions and enjoying exotic food — all the while dealing with the unexpected twists and turns that any trip presents.
As they check off items on their own personal “bucket list,” the five will rely on each other for support and encouragement and, in the process, demonstrate that friendship is the ultimate gift.
Craig Zadan & Neil Meron, Henry Winkler, Jason Ehrlich, Stephanie Chambers, Alex Katz and Tim Crescenti executive produce. “Better Late Than Never” is produced by Universal Television in association with Storyline Entertainment, Small World IFT and CJ E&M.
The successful original series “Grandpa Over Flowers” is produced by CJ Entertainment & Media and currently airs in both China and South Korea.
