Discovery World HD has acquired the Canadian broadcast rights for season two of TGTV’s lifestyle travel series, The Travel Guy.

Hosted and produced by Frank Greco, season two’s 13 x 30-minute episodes feature Greco’s adventures in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Nova Scotia, Northern Ireland, Iceland, Fiji, Wales, Cyprus, Switzerland, and Canada’s Yukon Territory.

The adventures documented in season two include zip-lining, feeding a tiger shark and more.

“Some of what I do may seem extreme, but it’s not. If I can do it, anyone can,” said Greco.  “Plans are already under way for season three.”

The series is currently distributed in Canada, Europe and the U.S.
