In these trying times, it’s important to set aside some moments for the old comfort classics, whether that’s a warm bath, a favorite book, or watching two aggressively charming Scottish men tour the heartland of their home country together. Starz announced today it has picked up Men In Kilts: A Roadtrip with Sam and Graham, a new docu-series starring Outlander duo Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish. The show will follow the pair as they discover “the rich, complex heritage of their native country, meeting various local artisans and experts, and experiencing genuine moments of awe and fascination.”
“The genuine curiosity and passion that Sam and Graham have for the landscapes they visit and the stories they uncover while traveling through the heart of Scotland makes Men in Kilts: A Roadtrip with Sam and Graham a truly enjoyable journey of discovery for the audience,” said Christina Davis, President, Original Programming of Starz, in a statement. “The series gives context and texture to Highland life and history, woven together, much like the tartan for which Scotland is so famous, and we look forward to taking this road trip with these two great friends.”

Here is the official synopsis for Men In Kilts:
The half-hour, eight-episode series is a celebration of Scottish history and culture as Heughan and McTavish take viewers along on their adventures, discovering the rich, complex heritage of their native country, meeting various local artisans and experts, and experiencing genuine moments of awe and fascination as the duo share their travels with the audience rather than simply guiding them.
