“Chris is one of the most inspiring new voices on TV. He’s part Anthony Bourdain, part Anderson Cooper and 100% fresh.” Jerry Kolber, Executive Producer of Brain Games on National Geographic Join Global Explorer, United Nations Moderator, and accidental funnyman, Chris Bashinelli, on an introspective adventure across continents. Born in Brooklyn, New York, Chris Bashinelli gave up his acting career to pursue his real passion- using media to bridge intercultural gaps around the world. In this series, featured on National PBS television, Bashinelli traverses the globe from Uganda to Haiti to discover what it’s like to walk in someone else’s shoes for one day. Chris gives new meaning to the term “cultural exchange”. He’s willing to do just about anything in order to make a genuine human connection. Whether he’s sliding his arm shoulder deep up a cow’s backside on an Indian Reservation or screaming like a 12-year-old girl while escaping from venomous bees in Uganda, he offers viewers a glimpse inside a world they might otherwise never see. He plays, parties, and works side by side with locals in order to better understand their way of life firsthand. Bridge the Gap paints a brief, yet colorful picture of life in each country. Chris competes in a rap battle in a Haitian slum, rides motorcycles across the mountains of East Africa and harvests buffalo with the Oglala Lakota of Pine Ridge. He discovers how people live, what they care about, and how their lives relate to ours. While we all look, talk and act a little different, at the end of the day, we are all the same.
