Oak Parker Peter Sagal, host of NPR's popular "Wait, Wait ... Don't Tell Me" show ill star in a new TV show on PBS next spring called "Constitution USA with Peter Sagal."

He's hitting the road on a Harley Davidson to travel the country and find out how the U.S. Constitution lives, how it works, and how it doesn't, according to an announcement made by PBS on Saturday.

"The Constitution was and is an imperfect document, and its strength lies in the ongoing arguments about its meaning, as much as the original text," Sagal said in a statement. "I'm looking forward to digging into this stuff...and getting to ride a motorcycle."

Sagal plans to introduce viewers to some of today's major constitutional debates and talk with ordinary folks and experts alike about this defining document. The show is slated to air next spring, coinciding with the 225th anniversary of the Constitution's ratification.
