Joel McHale stars in the premiere episode of The Getaway.

Anthony Bourdain-produced The Getaway is apparently going the celebrity route, as the Esquire travel show drops its promo to taut names like Joel McHale, Aziz Ansari, Aisha Tyler, and Eve.

According to a press release, the 10-part series will have a different celebrity for every episode, who will show the crew and viewers around their favorite places on Earth. Ansari, we assume, gets Hong Kong (what, not Tokyo?), while Aisha Tyler heads to Paris, and José Andrés (the one chef name noted) heads off to San Juan, Puerto Rico. In each hourlong episode, the celebs will "hit the streets and enjoy the life of a local, doing what they do, eating what they eat, and going where they go." Not too bad of a gig.

The show premieres April 23 on the new Esquire network at 10 p.m. ET, starting off with Joel McHale trying out tweed and whiskey in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and it looks like he's just going to drink for his entire episode. "I've decided I'm not going to eat for this whole trip," McHale says in the promo. "I'm just going to drink." Watch the promo below.
