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.
The remaining three commissions fall under Travel’s ‘Secrets & Legends’ franchise, which is dedicated to specific types of destination such as castles, hotels and national parks.
Castle Secrets & Legends (5 x one-hour) is produced by Optomen Productions and profiles castles in the United States and around the world; Hotel Secrets & Legends (13 x one-hour) is produced by Twelve02 Productions and recounts strange stories set in American hotels; and National Park Secrets & Legends (8 x half-hour, working title) is produced by Galafilm and focuses unexplained phenomena that occurred in North America’s national parks.
