Next week ABC screens Miriam’s Big American Adventure, a 3 part travel series starring the much-loved Harry Potter and Miss Fisher star.
The inimitable Miriam Margolyes (Harry Potter, The Age of Innocence and The Real Marigold Hotel), brings her unique mix of charm, cheekiness and curiosity in this new and very entertaining three-part documentary series, when she embarks on an epic road trip through the heartland of America.
Miriam sets out from Chicago to travel almost a thousand miles to New Orleans. Along the way she meets the people whose voices and votes are reshaping the nation. From summer camps to county jails, and all-girl motorbike gangs to a mass citizenship ceremony, the articulate, funny and refreshingly honest Miriam embeds herself in communities whose visions of their own country challenge everything she thought she knew about America.
In episode one, Miriam sets out from Chicago, as she goes in search of the American dream, and to investigate whether it still exists, and to question why people would want to achieve it at all.
9:30pm Tuesday on ABC.
