Netflix has released the Sue Perkins Perfectly Legal trailer, which shows the famous British TV show host of The Great British Bake Off taking on the travel show challenge in her own way. The official description of the show says, "She is traveling around South America to experience some of the most bizarre, unusual, and shocking activities that are somehow perfectly legal in those countries."
Sue Perkins takes on the challenge of middle age by traveling to different Latin American countries in unexpected, sometimes dangerous ways. The trailer is almost 50 seconds long and starts off with a monologue from the host as she explains, how we all like to be confined to the norms and conventions of the society we live in.
Everyone wants to be free again, to go on an adventure in unknown places, without a care in the world. To let their guard down, do things you never intended to do or could do at home. Even things that would not even be legal at home. We fantasize about such things, but we never have the courage to pursue them.
Most people wish they could eat all day, stay out all night, drink alcohol, dance, swim, fly, or float, and in all senses be free. That's what the host Sue Perkins should do in her travel show. Even if we don't, you find yourself standing in a warehouse in the back streets of Bogotá, which might scare some, but not Sue.
Rumpus Media, a British production company, has produced several solo travel adventures for BBC One, including The Ganges With Sue Perkins and Japan With Sue Perkins.
Sue Perkins is perfectly legal in the video below.
Netflix is set to release the program on 13 October.
