Kaley Cuoco On Her New Series “The Great Travel Hack” With Shell, Upcoming Projects & More
Kaley Cuoco is no stranger to innovative ideas. Coming off 12 years as the lead actress on the CBS hit The Big Bang Theory — undoubtedly one of the biggest sit-coms of all-time — Cuoco has learned a lot about physics and other complex scientific subjects through her on-set work in Hollywood.
Now Kaley Cuoco is teaming up with Shell to inspire consumers to protect our global environment by choosing low carbon transportation options. As host of The Great Travel Hack, a digital video series, Cuoco is with us mile by mile of the journey while two teams battle it out to travel from Los Angeles to New York using the lowest amount of CO2 emissions possible. The program is the first leg of a Shell global initiative which will see the journey replicated across Europe and Asia Pacific.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Kaley Cuoco about The Great Travel Hack and more; a video embed of the interview is below, while the full audio of the Q&A will appear on a later edition of the Paltrocast With Darren Paltrowitz podcast. With regards to how she would describe the series, what drew her to work on it and the overall process of working on it, she warmly answered:
“I was so happy to work with them. They are really trying to make a difference in finding a new cleaner way to travel. This is a web series on YouTube. It is a competition show… We take two teams on this really cool road trip from L.A. to New York and basically the winners are whoever uses the least amount of CO2 emissions and I host the show throughout the week. We monitor all the situations and the places that they go and the contestants were awesome; they tried really hard. They use all these clean and different ways to travel, like hydrogen vehicles electric vehicles. 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. And I learned a lot myself.”
