Jeremy Piven’s Journey of a Lifetime

Tonight on the Travel Channel, a cool new special will debut called Journey of a Lifetime with Jeremy Piven. The show follows actor Piven as he explores India in a spiritual and cultural awakening.

At the beginning of the show, Piven states that he has always wanted to travel to India, so much so that he decorated his home with Indian artifacts, and is a devout practitioner of yoga. The first episode is on tonight at 9PM EDT/8 PM CDT, and covers his journey through Southern India, including Bombay. Next weeks episode will see Piven travel to Northern India.

The show actually aired over the weekend on Discovery HD Theater, so anyone who has HD may have already seen it. I watched it and found it to be fascinating and fun.

Piven is very likeable, and seems to have a genuine sense of awe and wonder at the people and places he is encountering. And while Piven is no Michael Palin, I do look forward to seeing the next episode, which looks awesome in HD by the way.
