"The Getaway" (TV show) is a travel series that airs on the Esquire Network.

Anyone can be a tourist, but experiencing a city like a local takes a great guide. The series explores the world's greatest cities through the eyes of a revolving cast of travel-loving celebrities who know them inside and out.

Each episode follows a celeb to their favorite place on earth, where they provide the inside track on the best things to do, food to eat, and places to hang out. They'll hit the streets and enjoy the life of a local, doing what they do, eating what they eat, and going where they go.

For the premiere episode, Joel McHale ("The Soup," "Community") hits the historic cobblestone trading lanes of Belfast, Northern Ireland as he samples the local whiskey, tries a tweed wardrobe on for size, and checks out the wheels of a true Irish automobile export, the DeLorean. Additional episodes head to Hong Kong with Aziz Ansari ("Parks and Recreation"); Paris, France with Aisha Tyler (Archer); Kingston, Jamaica with Grammy Award-winning performer-songwriter Eve; and San Juan, Puerto Rico with acclaimed chef José Andrés. (Additional travelers and locations to be announced.)

"The Getaway" is produced by Zero Point Zero Production with Anthony Bourdain, Lydia Tenaglia, Chris Collins and Alexandra Lowry serving as executive producers. Matt Hanna, Laura Civiello, Darren Wadyko and Jennifer Nelson are executives for Esquire Network.
