Roku has announced the approval of a new original docu-series, “Tracee Travels.” The acclaimed actress and CEO of PATTERN, Tracee Ellis Ross, will lead the series.

Tracee Ellis Ross: Championing Solo Travel

Tracee Ellis Ross, known for her passion for solo travel, will take viewers along as she meticulously plans and embarks on her solo adventures to breathtaking destinations. In “Tracee Travels,” Ross will explore beauty, fashion, design, food, and culture at each location. The series, set to film later this year, will premiere exclusively on The Roku Channel in 2025, with specific locations for the first season to be revealed in the future.

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