Best Sandwich has the popular Man v. Food host traveling the country to find the best sandwiches made in the United States. The network has ordered 11 episodes, 10 half-hours and a one-hour special where Richman will reveal his top pick. Man v. Food will cease production for the time being, though Travel Channel will continue to air reruns of the series.
Building on the Antiques Roadshow genre of found treasure, Toy Hunters follows collectibles dealer Jordan Hembrough as he searches the country's attics and garages for toys to sell his buyers. Originally aired as a special on the channel in January, the network has picked up 12 half-hour episodes.
Travel Channel also announced three new series in development. From David Arquette and his friend Mike McGuinness is Mile High, which follows Arquette and his 6'7'' pal as they take spontaneous weekend trips, using social media tips as their guide.
It has also greenlit a half-hour pilot for Aloha Gold about a Hawaii travel tour company and is in development on Slice of Brooklyn, which follows a family-run Brooklyn pizza tour business.
The network has also renewed the Anthony Bourdain series The Layover for a 10-episode second season, where the host visits cities around the world in 24-48 hours. Bourdain's other series, No Reservations will return for its eighth season on Monday, Apr. 9 at 9 p.m.
