Roles:

*Host – This character will be the main narrator of the series and will appear in every episode. They will provide comedic commentary but naturally play off the Participant who will also be adding comedic dialogue. The host is slightly uncomfortable with the activity at hand but down to try something new and hopefully learn a new skill while having fun.

*Participant – This character is secondary and will change every episode. The participant has an active role in each episode and has been brought into the equation by the host who is introducing them to a new adventure, (i.e. winter camping, skiing, climbing, etc) This character will also serve as the secondary narrator and infuse comedy at natural moments. The participant isn’t familiar with the activity and/or skill but is willing/open to trying new things while having a laugh.
