The series getting renewed are Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, Ghost Adventures, The Dead Files, Truck Stop USA (former Truck Stop Missouri), Off Limits, Mysteries at the Museum and Sand Masters.
New programming for 2012 are the docu-series Baggage Battles, about the "auction specialists" of the lost luggage world; Hotel Impossible, featuring hotel "fixer" Anthony Melchiorri; Miami International Airport (working title), a day-in-the-life look at one of the country's busiest airports; and America Caught on Camera, featuring funny video footage captured by visitors in America's cities.
Also on the slate are Park Secrets, which uncovers must-see spots not usually featured in guidebooks; Trip Flip, where host Bert Kreischer is paired with unsuspecting vacationers; Vegas Stripped, a peek behind the curtains of a Vegas casino; and Unpacked, which spotlights intriguing stories that shed light on iconic locations.
Travel Channel also announced two pilots in development -- Slice of Brooklyn, about Tony Muia, his neighborhood buddies and their Brooklyn pizza tour company; and Vacation Hunters, where participants are given a one-day "speed tour" of three different itineraries at their destination before choosing their desired route.
"Our viewers are passionate about discovering new unique destinations and embrace the surprise of rediscovering the places found just around the corner -- but from fresh angles," said Andy Singer, senior VP, programming and production, Travel Channel. "We are really excited about our new slate of programming that showcases the authentic characters and experts that not only entertain, but are guaranteed to inspire our viewers."
