TORONTO, Feb. 13, 2012 /CNW/ - Travel+Escape has acquired the exclusive Canadian rights from FremantleMedia Enterprises to Anthony Bourdain's highly acclaimed new travel show, The Layover. Currently airing in its first season on The Travel Channel in the U.S. The Layover premieres in Canada Spring 2012 on Travel+Escape.
Anthony Bourdain is back with the high-octane series The Layover in which he explores an unexpected destination in just 24-48 hours. Viewers get a ringside seat as Tony explores a different jet-setting hub proving that layovers are opportunities for travelers to mingle with locals, crash parties, dine on local cuisine, and explore cultures. From New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami to Hong Kong, Singapore, London, Rome, Montreal and Amsterdam, viewers learn where to go, where to stay and what to eat, to maximize their enjoyment no matter how much or little time they have in that city.
"We're excited to finally bring Canadians the Anthony Bourdain series everyone has been buzzing about," said Sharon Stevens, Senior Director, Programming & Acquisitions, GlassBOX Television. "Anthony is as equally a prolific traveller as he is chef, so The Layover perfectly compliments our travel programming with his acerbic take on sightseeing."
