The Moaning of Life is a forthcoming British travel documentary television series, to be broadcast on Sky1. It follows Karl Pilkington around the world as he visits other cultures. Unlike An Idiot Abroad, which had a similar premise, The Moaning of Life sees Karl actually choosing to visit other cultures in order to see how they face up to some of life's biggest issues. He also reassesses his life now that he has reached middle age. The show will have five one-hour episodes. It is scheduled to broadcast in Autumn 2013. According to the show's official Twitter page, The Moaning of Life will air in October.
