Unscripted shows to focus on food, explorers and American landmarks

Two of the new series, All Forked Up and Burger Land, focus on food, with All Forked Up pairing food critics Al Mancini and John Curtas in a "food feud" that will take the duo around the world. Burger Land will see host George Motz hunt for the ultimate burger.
DigFellas, Fortune Diggers (working title) and Gem Hunt all feature exploratory themes. DigFellas will see relic hunters journey to history-rich locations while the competition series Fortune Diggers has three teams face off with metal detectors to find valuable treasures underground. Gem dealer Rob LeBlanc stars in Gem Hunt, where he travels to remote regions of the globe to search for precious stones.
Monumental Mysteries will "rediscover" America's famous landmarks with host Don Wildman.
"From the untold stories of our monuments and the buried history uncovered by our relic-hunters, to discovering some of our nation's most interesting places to chow-down, and even trekking the world in search of rare gems -- our new shows prove we are the leader in travel entertainment," said Travel Channel president Laureen Ong. "Our hosts are all authorities in their fields -- and they take us along on their global thrill-rides, doing what they know best."
