James May and The Dull Men’s Club, New Series for Quest

Shed and Buried

James May is set to embark on a unique television journey, stepping away from his well-known motoring shows. The presenter will explore the extraordinary in the ordinary in his new series, “James May and The Dull Men’s Club,” coming to Quest later in 2024.

May’s new show is a significant shift from his usual content, exploring the world of the “Dull Men’s Club,” a phenomenon born from a Facebook group. The club, founded by 77-year-old retired tax attorney Leland Carson, celebrates the excitement found in mundane hobbies and interests. The club provides a space for those who find pleasure in the simple things, such as collecting bricks or photographing mailboxes.

May’s series will reflect this philosophy, presenting a unique perspective on everyday life. The show will see May team up with the club to explore a range of unusual questions and test unique ideas, such as whether a washing machine can be used as a cooker.

While May is known for his work on high-octane motoring programs like “Top Gear” and “The Grand Tour,” this new series offers a different pace and focus. In recent years, May has successfully diversified his portfolio, presenting programs on a variety of topics, including toys, food, science, and travel, with his documentary series “James May: Our Man in…” taking him around the globe.
