Journy to Co-Produce Chasing the Sun Season 2


Ovation’s streaming service Journy is partnering with Save Your Day Films and executive producer Stephen Friedman to co-produce the second season of Chasing the Sun.

Chasing the Sun follows Friedman as he meets with locals who tell their stories and offer an intimate view into the places he visits around the world. In the new season, Friedman will travel throughout Asia, including stops in Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia, South Korea, Hong Kong, Japan, India and Sri Lanka. The series will air on Journy and Ovation TV in the U.S.

“It’s been an incredible and humbling experience producing and hosting Chasing the Sun, and Journy has been an enthusiastic supporter of the show,” said Friedman. “We are very excited to have them in our corner for season two. Our approach to Chasing the Sun is far more unique than any other production out there in this space. The team at Journy and Ovation saw our vision and were quick to be part of it. We are going back to the roots of storytelling and travel. With the backdrop of Asia as our canvas, we couldn’t ask for a better scenario to push the limits and capture something truly amazing.”

Scott Woodward, executive VP of programming and production at Ovation, added: “As Journy’s first original series, we are very pleased to be working with Save Your Day Films and Stephen Friedman on Chasing the Sun. Stephen’s very unique and fresh approach to the travel genre makes this a standout series and one that we think Journy and Ovation viewers will absolutely love.”
