Starting on Wednesday, 4 June 2008 at 9pm EST, Sundance Channel is premiering a 12-part documentary series titled "On the Road in America" about four young Arabs on a ten-week journey across America.
"Join four young people of Arab heritage as they take an unconventional road trip across America. Originally created to expose Middle Eastern audiences to the diverse culture of the United States, this 12-part documentary series follows Ali, Sanad, Mohamad and Lara as they explore differences and similarities between their worlds and the people and places they visit, from the Hamptons to downtown Los Angeles. In the opening episode, the quartet meets in Washington while war rages between Israel and Hezbollah. Jerome Gary directs."
