AMC says it will air next year six, hourlong episodes of the non-fiction series "Ride with Norman Reedus."

The show will feature "The Walking Dead" icon and biker-enthusiast as he takes viewers on the open road to explore motorcycle culture and its history.

"We love being the home of people's passion projects, and there is nobody more passionate about motorcycles than Norman Reedus," Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV, said in a statement Thursday.

"He is an avid rider and aficionado who is deeply immersed in motorcycle culture. There is also nobody more fun to hang out with. This show will bring those two elements together for a weekly ride into the incredible world of motorcycles and the people who live and breathe them."

"Norman's interest in motorcycle culture and his natural ability to make friends wherever the road takes him are just two of the key ingredients that make this show so exciting for us," added Ken Druckerman, co-president of Left/Right Productions.

"We look forward to taking viewers on a fun, imaginative, and revealing ride."

"I'm incredibly excited and thankful to AMC for giving me the opportunity to share a passion of mine with our fans, and hopefully a whole new audience. I had a lot of fun filming and exploring, and I hope it shows," Reedus remarked.

The 46-year-old actor is also known for his work in the films "Mimic," "Six Ways to Sunday," "8MM" and "The Boondock Saints."
