Bob SagetComedian Bob Saget is going on a few road trips next year.

A&E and the longtime television personality have agreed to produce a new travel series under the working title 'Bob Saget's Strange Days,' in which he explores off-beat communities and subcultures. So far, the show will have Saget hanging out with biker gangs, mail-order brides, partying Amish teenagers and survivalists. An initial order of seven one-hour episodes are scheduled to air at some point in 2010, according to Variety.

The show is said to stem from Saget's stand-up routine, and will explore alternative lifestyles while trying to uncover a more emotive element. In a statement released, senior vice president Robert Sharenow said the show "will reveal hidden corners of the real America and the real Bob Saget, who is even funnier and more relatable when just being himself than any other role he's ever played."Bob SagetComedian Bob Saget is going on a few road trips next year.

Best known for as the patriarch on the 90s family sitcom 'Full House' and as the host for 'America's Funniest Home Videos,' Saget is often associated with a very family-friendly brand of humor. But his stand-up shows a raunchier side to his personality, and 'Strange Days' appears to be illuminating the quirkier aspects of his personality that the general public might not be that aware of (what, nobody saw his cameo on 'Half-Baked'?).

In this decade, he's been largely absent from television, aside from serving as the narrator on the CBS sitcom 'How I Met Your Mother' and appearing earlier this year in the short-lived ABC comedy, 'Surviving Suburbia.'

We couldn't help but notice that if seven episodes have been green-lit, yet only four subcultures were mentioned, that means there are three areas left for Saget to explore. That got us thinking: Who would we want Saget to uncover for us? Here are a few suggestions:

-- Saget Goes to Burning Man
-- Saget and the Michigan Militia
-- Saget Goes to 'The Gathering,' the annual festival for Insane Clown Posse fans
-- Saget Hangs with Mensa
-- Saget: Tornado Chaser
