It’s Official! Two for the Road Returns Nationwide on Create TV for Season Three Run

(HOWARDWICK, TX, May 18, 2021) – Hold on for the ride y’all! The innovative and inspiring adventure travel show Two for the Road is returning to the national stage once again next week, on public television’s nationwide lifestyle channel Create TV.

The unique and widely popular travel show, which is filmed, written, produced and edited entirely by married adventurers and small-town Texas Panhandle residents Nikki and Dusty Green, is returning to the Create lineup on Tuesday, May 25, 2021. The show will air each Tuesday, three times a day, with showings at 9:00am, 4:00pm and 10pm Central time.

“It’s quite a thrill for us,” said Dusty, “We’ve been so fortunate to be on the schedules of so many terrific public television stations across the country these last several years, and now to be back on Create – and to get a chance once again to be in front of their massive nationwide audience – it means the world to us. It’s really very special. It’s quite an honor.”

It’s been three years since the Greens last made an appearance on Create, when Two for the Road season two made its run on the channel back in the spring of 2018. And though production is now just beginning on its fifth exciting season, the series will pick up where it left off on Create, with Two for the Road season three. The season features thirteen half-hour episodes highlighting the Greens’ adventures in some of the most spectacular destinations around the world, including Bolivia, Ireland, Iceland, the Galapagos Islands, Puerto Rico and more.

“We are so excited and honored to be back on Create,” said Nikki. ”It’s just awesome. And we feel like we’ve come such a long way since season two. Season three is an amazing season and we’re so very proud of it. There are so many incredible places and heartwarming stories in season three. So to finally get it out there in front of a national TV audience again is just an amazing feeling.”

The show is the realization of a life-changing dream for the Greens, who in 2007 decided to quit their jobs, sell their home and their belongings, and strike out from their lifelong home in the Panhandle to pursue a life of travel and adventure. The inaugural season of Two for the Road first aired nine years later in the fall of 2016 on Panhandle PBS in Amarillo, Texas, which today proudly remains the show’s presenting station – its “home” in the public television system. Two for the Road was nominated for three Lone Star Emmy awards in its initial season, and the show now boasts a total of 40 episodes spotlighting the many incredible adventures, sights, sounds, tastes and cultures the Greens have documented around the world and here at home.

“We’re thrilled that Create TV is bringing Two for the Road back to its lineup for season three,” said Kyle Arrant, Director of Station Operations for Panhandle PBS. “Dusty and Nikki’s one-of-a-kind travel show is a Panhandle PBS favorite, and we’re excited for viewers across the country to once again get to explore the world with them.”

And though their travels continue to take them to far-off reaches of the globe, the Greens still proudly call the Panhandle their home. Today they live an hour southeast of Amarillo in the tiny hamlet of Howardwick, Texas (population 402) where they produce the global series from a small office in the 700-square foot manufactured home they affectionately call their worldwide headquarters. In a nod to the fact they produce the show entirely without a crew, they even give a special credit to their cat Willie Nelson, whom they list as an associate producer in the show’s ending credits.

Howardwick is more than 1100 miles from Los Angeles and more than 1600 miles from New York City. A fact the Greens say doesn’t always work in their favor.

“Oh, we’re underdogs out here for sure, even still after four seasons,” said Dusty. “But it’s a wonderful comfort knowing we have such tremendous love and support from folks out here in West Texas, and from so many viewers and public television stations across the country that are willing to take a chance on us. And they’re all the reason we are where we’re at today.”

Nikki agreed. “For sure. An uphill battle is so much to easier fight when you’ve got so many good people pushing you up that hill from behind. It really makes our hearts feel so full. We’re blessed in more ways than we can count.”

And it’s not just their return to Create that has the Greens excited these days. The couple will be celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary in June, and they’ll also soon be launching a brand new venture in the Texas Panhandle, that they hope will bring more of the world home to the area they love. It’s a project they call their “silver lining” from the global pandemic, which has of course kept them and most travelers off the road for the last year. And with travel now making a comeback, they say the timing couldn’t be better.

“It’s shaping up to be an action-packed summer for sure,” said Dusty. “And we’re ready to not only get back out there and start filming new shows, but to help promote travel and tourism right here in our own back yard. It’s really exciting, and we can’t wait to get it all rolling.”

Two for the Road season three is presented by Panhandle PBS and underwritten for public television by AIG Travel, Panhandle-based overlanding company American Safari JXL, and Ecuador-based tour and cruise company Latin Trails.
