DESCRIPTION:
(from Esquire Network's press release, October 2013) Matt Hranek's job as a photographer takes him all over the country to document all that embodies Americana. He created a blog to share the best discoveries from his travels, The William Brown Project, an expertly curated collection celebrating the old-school, authentic and timeless -- and the big, memorable characters who make it all possible. The new original series ALTERNATE ROUTE continues Matt's obsessions when it premieres on Esquire Network Wednesday, November 20 at 10:30p e/p. Each half-hour episode of ALTERNATE ROUTE finds Matt traveling to a new location, driving a vintage automobile and game for adventure. He's interested in the true culture of a place, be it high (artisanal cocktails and master-tailored suits) or low (hot dog stands and American-made blue jeans). And as an avid sportsman, he's always up for an adrenaline rush... whether it's an ill-advised fishing trip off the coast of Long Island, a few laps behind the wheel of a stock car in Nashville, or gigging frogs by moonlight in the Florida Everglades. Other locations include Charleston, Chicago and Maryland's Eastern Shore.
