Less than a week after wrapping The Voice, Darren McMullen has landed his next big TV gig.
The affable host will begin shooting a travel series for National Geographic globally.
He's taking inspiration from one of his great heroes, English broadcaster Louis Theroux, who is known for his TV series, Weird Weekends.
"We will be based out of Europe for season one," McMullen said. "We are going to visit very strange sub-cultures."
It is another major coup for McMullen, 31, who has had a string of hits internationally over the past few years while maintaining his work in Australia. In the US, he fronted primetime reality show Love In The Wild while in the UK he hosted Minute To Win It and The Magicians.
"It is serendipitous really because I've been trying to get a travel show off the ground for years and nobody was very forthcoming in making one," he said.
"I think people thought the concept was quite stale and luckily Ricky Gervais decided to do The Idiot Abroad and because it was such a success, pretty much overnight every production company was screaming for the next travel show."
McMullen finished shooting the last series of The Voice on Monday night and flew to Japan on Friday for a holiday.
Due to begin filming his next show at the end of July, he's yet to sign on for the third series of The Voice.
"I would love to do another series," he said.
