Down The Road Season 1 & 2

 

Winner Rose d'Or 2018 | Best Reality & Factual Entertainment

An experienced television host is in for his biggest adventure yet: a road trip with six young adults who have Down syndrome. A once in a lifetime journey that affords the viewer the opportunity to see these ‘special needs’ subjects face extraordinary challenges and witness the universal emotions and obstacles they confront in their daily lives.
 
Along with our host, the group travels the world, conquering challenges as unique as they themselves, find new friends and maybe even love.  Moving past any specific label or cultural stigma, the subjects explore themselves and push their own limits, searching, as we all are, for validation and fulfillment in their own lives.
 
Down the road is a new documentary series, packed with heartwarming moments. An uplifting tale that celebrates honesty and diversity.
