Travel Channel

Travel Channel is taking viewers away, with ten new series, one new special and a a series in development that span the globe. “We believe in travel’s inherent ability to connect us with different places and cultures,” said net president Shannon O’Neill. “Our mission is to provide our viewers with transformative programming that provides a gateway and personal portal to experience that world.”

And they’re prepared to do that with a raft of shows, including two BBQ competitions – American Grilled has pit masters battling it out, while it’s neighbor against neighbor in Underground BBQ Challenge; Big Crazy Family Adventure (wt), about an adventurer who brings his family along for the ride; Big Time RV (wt), a docuseries set in a Florida dealership; Booze Traveler (wt), focused on a cocktail connoisseur traveling the world “one drink at a time”; adventure docuseries Expedition Unknown; Hotel Amazon (wt), following two pals who leave New York to open a resort in the middle of the Peruvian Amazon; hidden-camera show Resort Rescue; Tours by Unger (wt), featuring little-known, fascinating destinations, and World Access, an “immersive exploration of fascinating sites and hidden locations.”

A special, One Day on Earth (wt) shows sights and sounds from all over the world, from cities to jungles, all on the same day. And 1 Way Ticket, in development, surprises couples with a free ticket to an exotic location – but they have to follow clues to find their way home.
