‘We are traveling around the world to find new perspectives on some very old problems,’ Efron says in voice over.

‘And we’re gonna be eating, really, really well,’ he says while the trailer shows him making pasta and eating dung-smoked food. 

Though the food ‘doesn’t taste like dung,’ according to the host.  

‘I’m so happy that I’m eating carbs again,’ he jokes while making handmade pasta.

In voiceover her continues: ‘We need to start rethinking how we consume everything, from our food to our power. Change has to start somewhere. Maybe it’s time we all change.’

One of the most noteworthy moments in the trailer is when he encounters a ‘community fart bag.’ 

‘[The community fart bag] burns like the Olympic torch,’ he says while looking at an open flame, fueled by the gas.  

The show is Efron’s latest collaboration with Netflix after he starred as Ted Bundy in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile. 

He is also set to star in another travel documentary series alongside his brother, for streaming service Quibi, Kill the Efrons, later this year, where they will be sent to remote parts of the world.
