LOS ANGELES, Aug. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As one of the world's premier destinations offering unique adventures, a culture kaleidoscope, international cuisine, and a colorful nightlife, it only seems fitting that Hong Kong plays a leading role in the new popular NBC primetime TV show Better Late Than Never. Starring alongside some of Hollywood's leading legends, the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) announced today that Asia's World City will be featured in an upcoming episode of the comedy series airing August 30, 2016 at 10 p.m. EST.
Based on the popular South Korean TV show, Better Late Than Never is a fish-out-of-water new series that follows beloved icons Henry Winkler, William Shatner, Terry Bradshaw and George Foreman on their greatest adventure yet. Deciding that it's better late than never, these four national treasures embark on the journey of a lifetime, traveling across Asia on their own with no schedule and no itinerary. The only help will come from Jeff Dye, a young tech-savvy comedian with an agenda of his own and who isn't above leading the men astray. In Hong Kong, each stop is packed with hilarious cultural experiences, heartwarming spectacles and unexpected twists that take these legends on an incredible Asian adventure.
"From its rich history and culture to its renowned dining scene, Hong Kong is a sophisticated fusion of East-meets-West, offering visitors an unforgettable trip of a lifetime," said Bill Flora, the U.S. Director of the Hong Kong Tourism Board. "The chance to have Hong Kong play such a vital role in the new NBC TV show Better Late Than Never is an opportunity to showcase the destination and encourage viewers to experience the magic of Asia's World City."
Executive producers of the new comedy series on NBC include Craig Zadan & Neil Meron, Henry Winkler, Jason Ehrlich, Stephanie Chambers, Alex Katz and Tim Crescenti. Better Late Than Never is produced by Universal Television in association with Storyline Entertainment, Small World IFT and CJ E&M.
