A&E has ordered seven episodes of Bob Saget's Strange Days, a nonscripted hourlong show where the comedian will explore the fringes of American society.

According to Variety, the quirky travelogue will place Saget with groups that include biker gangs, Amish teenagers, mail-order brides and survivalist cults.

"Bob Saget has been a part of the television landscape for years, but now we'll be seeing him in a completely different light as he travels the country to explore ways of living that most of us know nothing about," said Robert Sharenow, A&E senior veep of nonfiction and alternative programming.

Production will begin early in 2010 for a premiere later in the year.
