Irish TV host Hector travels from coast to coast in an epic road trip.
It’s a road trip like no other as Irish TV host Hector is stopped by cops, takes a spin in General Lee as he revisits his young days of the Dukes of Hazard and meets up with the Blind Boys of Alabama for a singsong before heading to Selma to walk on Edmund Pettus Bridge where he meets some of the people who were there on Bloody Sunday in 1965.
Ireland's most famous intrepid traveler opens our eyes to "His America" as he takes on the road trip of a lifetime from coast to coast trekking across the Southern States from Savannah on the Atlantic to San Diego on the Pacific.
“Hector USA,” available to watch for free online anywhere in the world, will be road-tripping from Georgia through Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana into Texas, New Mexico and Arizona before finishing up on the Pacific seaboard in California.
Covering eight states and more than 5000 miles on the road, it will be one helluva awesome adventure with Hector taking us to a world only he can access.
Traveling through a different state each episode, Hector hits New Orleans with a bang as he parties on the infamous Bourbon Street, gets kitted out and joins a stag party parading in the street before he meets up with General Russel Honore who was the commander of the US forces when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in 2005.
In Mississippi, he meets with Scott Shepherd, the former KKK leader, before heading out on a sting with the Alcohol Enforcement crew in Jackson and meeting up with the Hellfighter Bikers in Laurel before getting the inside story on the obesity in the country with an early weight loss boot camp with Paul Lacoste.
While in New Mexico, he hits Albuquerque and Santa Fe, delivering water to the Navajo people with the famous ‘Water Lady’, spending time with the hippies in Madrid, checking out some MMA fighters and a Breaking Bad tour in Albuquerque and then heading to a soccer game with some New Mexico United fans.
