A true legend and one of our favorite people of all time, Queen Latifah, is adding to her media empire by creating a new Travel Channel mini-series titled, Best Place To Be.

Inviting audiences to discover the world through the eyes of Hollywood’s most adventurous, Best Place To Be finds the award-winning talent hopping on motorcycle in Rio de Janeiro and connecting with the populace in a way like no other.

With the premiere episode airing Sunday, April 2 at 5:00 p.m. ET/PT, the four one-hour episode arc features a noted personality from Anthony Anderson to Jason Biggs to Mary-Louise Parker and others. “This is a fun show that gives a true glimpse into how to really escape and explore,” says Latifah’s Flavor Unit partner, Shakim Compere. “Actors and performers are fortunate enough to travel around the globe for work and fun. But there’s always places that stay with them — these are the cities they keep going back to.”

Below are the break downs of the episodes that will be out in April and May:
