WORLD FAMOUS YOUTUBERS JOE SUGG AND CASPAR LEE HIT THE ROAD IN A BRAND-NEW BBC WORLDWIDE SPECIAL
“I’ve always loved travelling and it’s going to be funny to see Caspar outside” – Joe Sugg
“I’m really excited to be going outside with my best YouTube friend Joe” – Caspar Lee
November 5, 2015 – New York, NY –World famous online talent Joe Sugg and Caspar Lee have produced and starred in their first-ever exclusive feature-length film, Joe & Caspar Hit The Road for BBC Worldwide. The extremely popular internet sensations (who have over 10 million YouTube subscribers and over a billion total video views between them) come together for a one-off special commission that will be released exclusively on digital download in the U.S., and is available to pre-order on iTunes, Amazon Video and Google Play.
Joe & Caspar Hit the Road will see Joe Sugg and Caspar Lee go on an epic European adventure. Unlike Joe, who used to be a roof thatcher, Caspar has never had a proper job or a gap year and he wants to make up for it. Joe challenges Caspar to survive a road trip around Europe using only the money they can earn each day.
While Joe and Caspar are on the road, the pair will be offering themselves up for employment in a series of unusual tasks they have absolutely no experience in, such as learning to be gondoliers in Venice, working as deck hands on a super yacht, and performing on Barcelona’s famous Las Ramblas. Viewers can expect plenty of laughs, pranks and unexpected visitors along the way, as well as exclusive extra content.
Joe & Caspar Hit the Road is executive produced by Paul Hembury (Top Gear The Perfect Road Trip I and II) for BBC Worldwide alongside Dominic Smales and Claire McArdle for Gleam Futures, Brian Klein (Top Gear) directs for BBC Worldwide. Joe Sugg and Caspar Lee are producers for Raucous Productions.
