Fremantle Makes Tracks With The Travel Channel

FremantleMedia Enterprises (FME) has announced its partnership with The Travel Channel making it the exclusive international distributor for the network's original programming.
The agreement provides access to a catalogue of more than 200 hours of programming from the US Travel Channel as well as a first-look at new productions for possible co-financing for international distribution. FME will make The Travel Channel library available for international sale at MIPTV, Cannes this April.
Headlining the slate are talent-led titles, Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern, Samantha Brown Passport to China and Best Places to Find Cash and Treasures with Kirsten Gumm, all shot in crystal clear high definition.
Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations (20 X 1 hour) invites viewers to travel the world with the experienced chef and writer seeking out authentic experiences and food that flavour the world's culture.
Following his wanderlust, Bourdain's journey takes him to people and places far beyond the realm of food. From Iceland to Vietnam the show presents a candid view of a chef out of his kitchen and his comfort zone.
Packing an open and curious mind, a strong stomach, and a healthy appetite for travel, Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern (14 x 1 hour) follows the internationally renowned chef and food writer, as he tastes his way around the world eating bear, tongue, pigeon, brain, turtle soup, and even pig's toes.
Taking her viewers on an adventure of a lifetime, in her series Samantha Brown Passport to China (3 x 1 hour) the experienced travel presenter discovers what's new in one of the world's oldest countries. In a land where East is meeting West in surprising ways, China is being rebuilt as a tourist Mecca because of the 2008 Olympic Games.
A further title to be found amongst the catalogue is Best Places to Find Cash and Treasures. In this 28 x 30 Indigo Films production host Kirsten Gumm takes the viewer on an exciting, fun-filled journey to uncover list relics, buried jewels and other valuable items at real locations accessible to the public.
