Friends Cross the Canning. 2022 Expedition

Take a 45-year-old Range Rover. Add the world’s longest and most remote cattle route. Mix in a bowl. Add two Germans, two English blokes and an Iraqi Uber Eats Driver. And what do you get?

Sometimes sweet, often spicy. Never bitter.

Escape into a magical world of the remote wilderness of the Canning Stock Route in Western Australia. Five friends take on over 1000 miles of red dunes, spiky grass, scruffy camels and shifty dingoes in an heroic adventure.

12-parts series. Average duration: 18 minutes per episode. PLUS Behind the scenes and bloopers reel..

As I have said, this series is unlike anything I’ve yet produced. I made it for TV, not YouTube. It’s in 4K. So find a time and sit down for a nice evening in front of the telly.

There are 12 episodes, averaging 18 minutes long, and that means 3.6 hours viewing.

And if you are planning a trip, you can save them to your device and watch them on the plane. The other passengers are going to wander why you’re laughing so much.

STORYLINE IN 12 PARTS

Unlike anything Andrew has produced before, this epic story will have you falling about with laughter. In the mode of Top Gear Special five friends take no prisoners in their attempt to upstage one another and keep the failures of their own vehicles hidden from the others.
And the setting is the world’s longest cattle route crossing the most remote part of all of Australia. The Canning Stock Route, 1850 kms of punishing, overgrown, unforgiving bush track.
The protagonists are:
Andrew in his Toyota V8 Troopcarrier, helping Rob in the 1975 original Range Rover Classic, who thinks Andrew has given him the Range Rover and who makes the most of every moment Heiner has to work on his Hilux. – which is far too often. Meanwhile John decides his Mitsubishi Triton is not rusty enough and finds a wreck to strip off parts. Mad impulsive boy that he is. Sean and his FJ Cruiser joining the convoy mid-trip, cooks up a storm and saves the day when he spots a leaking pipe in the Range Rover that Andrew and Rob missed, but then must hide from the others. It’s all rather childish.
This is a 12-part main feature series, with each show varying from 16-minutes to 22-minutes in length. Plus, for private viewing only, a bloopers behind the scenes reel.
It will be available in YouTube released one episode a week for 12 weeks. The blooper reel will not be shown on YouTube. The series will not remain on YouTube indefinitely. So download the series now!
