U.S. cable network Travel Channel has greenlit five series, including one hosted by Man v. Food‘s Adam Richman.

In Eat Secrets (13 x 30-minutes, working title), Richman travels across the United States in search of surprising and unique food items in unexpected places. The series will be produced by Sharp Entertainment.

The network has also ordered Resort Recon (13 x one-hour, working title) starring hospitality consultant Shane Green. Produced by RelativityReal, the series uses hidden cameras to show customer service problems and dysfunctional owner-employee dynamics at resorts.
