Bob Saget books A&E reality series

Comedian will explore American subcultures

Bob Saget will travel the country exploring strange American subcultures in a new reality series on A&E.

In "Bob Saget's Strange Days" (working title), the "America's Funniest Home Videos" host immerses himself in cultures such as the world of mail-order brides to joining a survivalist cult prepping for the end of the world to rushing at a fraternity.

The series is in production and expected to hit the air next year.

"Bob Saget has been a part of the television landscape for years, but now we'll be seeing him in a completely different light as he travels the country to explore ways of living that most of us know nothing about," said Robert Sharenow, senior vp of reality at A&E. "The show will reveal hidden corners of the real America and the real Bob Saget, who is even funnier and more relatable when just being himself than any other role he's ever played."
