What is On the Roam about?

On the Roam features Momoa traveling the U.S., wanting to find "art, adventure, and friendship through the lens of craftsmanship," per the synopsis. Based on the trailer, there's a wide variety of artisans and craftsmen that will be featured - from former Guns N' Roses guitarist, and probably the greatest guitarist of all time Slash, to motorcycle workshops and building instruments by hand.

In an interview with PEOPLE, the actor shared that he was surprised with "how much heart’s in it," and teased the following:

"Each episode just evolves into it’s own thing. Some of them turn into therapy sessions. That’s the beauty of it. It’s very intimate and obviously, for me, it’s very revealing."

Momoa co-directed and executive produced the show. Brian Mendoza and Kyle Wheeler also serve as EPs, with James Mendoza and Paris Herbert-Taylor producing the project. Check out the trailer below:

On the Roam premieres Thursday, Jan. 18, 2024 with the first two episodes on Max, and will be followed by two new installments weekly until the finale on Feb. 8.
