Shortly before The Big Bang Theory finale in May 2019, news of Kaley Cuoco’s next project came to light — a digital series called The Great Travel Hack. We were a bit surprised by the choice because not only is the show unscripted, but it doesn’t seem to fit inside Cuoco’s wheelhouse.
Let us explain: the show, which will air on YouTube, is a competition show created by Shell (yes, like the gas station) that follows two teams as they road trip from Los Angeles to New York. The catch? Each team must use the “lowest amount of CO2 emissions possible” during their trip, according to The Hype Magazine. As for the actress, she’ll follow along with the teams as they complete their respective journeys. Interesting.
“This is a hot topic right now, obviously, affecting our entire world and we’re not going to change the world overnight … It’s five episodes, it gets the point across, and I really enjoyed being part of it,” Cuoco told The Hype Magazine about the show’s environment friendly premise. “And I learned a lot myself.”
While we love the environment too (go green!), we can’t see this show doing wonders for Cuoco’s acting career. All in all, it seems like an odd pick for her first project after TBBT.
