Remarkable Living Premiere Will Anchor JOURNY’s Curated Holiday Programming Theme of “JOURNY, It’s Cold Outside!”
Ovation TV, America’s only arts network, is pleased to announce upcoming programming for its award-winning travel-entertainment digital channel, JOURNY. Every month, JOURNY will premiere a new series, supported by a curated theme of diverse programming, talent, and destinations. For December 2021, the theme “JOURNY, It’s Cold Outside!” highlights titles focusing on bundling up and enjoying the finer things in life. The monthly anchor, a JOURNY premiere, is a docuseries entitled Remarkable Living that will be available in its entirety starting on December 1.
The notion of luxury has changed. It isn’t about the price tag: it’s about what something is worth. It’s about the value of an experience. It’s about consciousness. It’s about vision.
Remarkable Living is a series that travels the world to put the focus on lifestyle visionaries who are creating unique experiences that matter. Over 30 episodes and three seasons, the series reveals how these great thinkers, rare craftsmen – and the savvy collectors in the know – are setting new, purpose-driven trends in living.
This December, JOURNY will also present Joanna Lumley in the Land of the Northern Lights, a documentary feature following an amazing journey in Norway’s Far North. Joanna Lumley (Absolutely Fabulous, The New Avengers) pursues a life-long dream to track down the elusive, stunningly beautiful Northern Lights – ‘the true wonder of the world’ as she puts it. As she seeks this personal Holy Grail, viewers get to see new sides of the charming, indefatigable, and idiosyncratic Joanna Lumley, responding with humor and deep emotion to one of the world’s most magnificent but extreme environments.
Viewers will also enjoy a specially curated line-up of some of JOURNY’s favorite series for the “JOURNY, It’s Cold Outside!” theme: rediscover chef David Rocco, the legendary Anthony Bourdain, actress Donna Perkins (Coming to America) or comedian Richard Ayoade (The IT Crowd) enjoying some cold weather or getting into the holiday spirit!
