Travel Channel Greenlights Second Season of ‘Man Finds Food’
NEW YORK (December 14, 2015) – Travel Channel announced today that “Man Finds Food” has been greenlit for a second season. Hosted by comfort food connoisseur Adam Richman (“Man v. Food,” “Man v. Food Nation,” “Fandemonium”), “Man Finds Food” will air on Travel Channel in the United States and across Scripps Networks’ international portfolio of channels in more than 100 countries and territories in summer 2016.
Season Two of the half-hour series, comprised of 14 episodes, follows Richman as he leaves North America and travels the globe in search of the best local dishes from across Europe, Africa, Asia and South America’s off-the-beaten-path restaurants. In each location, he will sample both traditional food favorites and unearth unique off-the-menu delicacies, experiencing the distinct culture and hospitality of each region.
“I can’t tell you how excited I am to get back on the road with my amazing crew for Season Two of ‘Man Finds Food,’” said Richman. “To be able to share the truly hidden and delicious gems that are out there with people all over the world is really a special opportunity. And to be able to do it with Travel Channel, where my first TV food journeys began, just makes it all the more special.”

For Sharp Entertainment, the executive producers are Matt Sharp, Dan Adler, Adam Richman and Bonnie Biggs, and the co-executive producer is Catherine Pappas.
