William Shatner, Henry Winkler and George Foreman have signed on to star in NBC's travelogue reality series "Better Late Than Never," from producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron.

Comedian Jeff Dye and sportscaster Terry Bradshaw are also on board for the bro-mance vehicle that will send the five men on a trek through major cities in Asia. "Better Late Than Never" is adapted from the hit South Korean format "Grandpa Over Flowers," which NBC optioned last year.

Production begins in August. Episodes will cover stops in Tokyo, Kyoto, Seoul, Hong Kong, Bangkok and Chang Mai. The show aims to offer a comedic look at how the five navigate unfamiliar cultures and settings and rely on one another for support while forgoing the usual trappings of celebrity status such as limousines and assistants. Each will also be tasked with checking off "bucket list" items

Winkler is exec producing for Universal TV and Storyline Entertainment with Jason Ehrlich ("The Bachelor"), Tim Crescenti ("I Survived a Japanese Game Show") and Zadan and Meron.
