Tracee Ellis Ross Sets ‘Tracee Travels’ Docuseries With Roku Originals (EXCLUSIVE)

Tracee Ellis Ross is packing her bags and inviting audiences to join her solo travel adventures with the new Roku Original series “Tracee Travels.”

The series will chronicle the award-winning actor (“Girlfriends,” “Black-ish,” and most recently the Oscar-winning film “American Fiction”) and Pattern CEO and founder as she “meticulously, laboriously, and sometimes ridiculously prepares for and travels solo to spectacular locations.” The series will shoot later this year, following Ross as she “charts her own path, exploring the intersection of beauty, fashion, design, food and culture at each stop.”

“I took my first solo trip when I was 22 years old. I decided way back then that I wouldn’t wait to do the things I wanted to do or for my life to come to me,” says Ross. “I’ve been solo traveling ever since, now there’s just a lot more luggage!”

She continues: “I hope this show reminds people that they too can courageously live their lives on their own terms, find their happiness, and be their whole selves and their best selves — by themselves. Everyone deserves to be joyous and audaciously free.”

The docuseries is produced by Ross’ Joy Mill Entertainment and Artists First, with Ross and E. Brian Dobbins serve as executive producers. Adriana Ambriz and Caroline Soss serve as co-executive producers. The series is overseen by Olivia LaRoche, Roku Originals’ head of alternative originals. The first season’s locations will be announced at a later date.

“No one travels like Tracee Ellis Ross — when it comes to going solo in style, she’s the expert,” adds Brian Tannenbaum, Roku Media’s head of originals. “We can’t wait to partner with Tracee, Joy Mill Entertainment and Artists First to take viewers on the trip of a lifetime and witness the delight of self-discovery and independence.”

“Tracee Travels” will debut exclusively on the Roku Channel in 2025.
