If it's always been your dream to get drink whiskey in Ireland with Joel McHale or tour Paris with the beautiful Aisha Tyler, then we hate to tell you that your dream will probably never come true. But Esquire Network's new docuseries takes you as close to that dream as possible, without the jet lag!
In these exclusive first look photos, celebs like Aziz Ansari, Seth Meyers and Rashida Jones take you to their favorite cities, from Hong Kong to New York City, in The Getaway (premiering Sept. 25). From executive producers Anthony Bourdain and Zero Point Zero Production, this new original series explores the world's greatest cities through the eyes of stars who have a real passion for travel.
Each hour-long episode features the best restaurants, bars, shops and more, but it's better than Yelp because you have someone like True Blood's Ryan Kwanten guiding you. And he's shirtless. You are welcome.
Check out the photos below, along with the loglines for each episode.
Joel McHale in Belfast (Sep. 25): Joel McHale lives like a local in Belfast, Northern Ireland, sampling local whiskey, buying a spiffy tweed wardrobe, golfing at one of the world's most beautiful courses and taking a spin in a true Irish auto export, the DeLorean.
Aziz Ansari in Hong Kong (Oct. 2): A bespoke suit, snake soup, the Hong Kong Derby and a mysterious fortune teller all add comical twists to comedian and actor Aziz Ansari's Hong Kong getaway.
Aisha Tyler in Paris (Oct. 9): French cuisine, rare cocktails once outlawed and a little taxidermy complete the perfect getaway to Paris for Francophile Aisha Tyler.
Josh Gad in New York City (Oct. 16): Josh Gad returns to New York City to live like a local beyond the theater district limits. Indulging in classic culinary staples, discovering a new Broadway play and taking in the Central Park scenery is just the beginning.
José Andrés in San Juan (Oct. 23): Acclaimed chef José Andrés is eager to experience San Juan, Puerto Rico, like a local, from sampling classic delicacies to a pig roast in the mountains—this getaway wraps after drinking with the locals lands him salsa dancing in the streets.
Ryan Kwanten in Los Angeles (Oct. 30): Ask actor Ryan Kwanten about Los Angeles and he's likely to say, "Westside is the best side." Beaches, bikes, sand and seafood. Throw in a classic cheeseburger and custom tequila cocktail—and that's Ryan's idea of a perfect weekend getaway.
Rashida Jones in London (Nov. 6): Actress Rashida Jones rediscovers London through reconnecting with famous friends. Coffee, cocktails and celebrity excrement preserved in a museum make this a getaway she will never forget.
Paul Feig in Boston (Nov. 13): Director Paul Feig takes on Boston with style, sporting a bespoke three-piece suit, as he clings for life on a wild speedboat, throws mock tea into the Boston Harbor with historic reenactors and samples delicacies from Beantown's impressive food and drink scene.
Also featured in The Getaway is Grammy-winner Eve traveling Kingston, Jamaica, and brothers Seth and Josh Meyers living it up in Amsterdam. The 10-part docuseries kicks of Sept. 25 at 9 p.m. on Esquire Network.
