RETURNING SERIES

"Bizarre Foods America" with Andrew Zimmern

In the sixth season of "Bizarre Foods America" with Andrew Zimmern, the widely recognized host explores the surprising and unusual ways we feed ourselves in this country.

"Bizarre Foods America" will return to the network with eight all-new one-hour episodes and is produced by Tremendous! Entertainment.

"Dangerous Grounds"

Entrepreneur and adventurer Todd Carmichael returns for a second season of "Dangerous Grounds," hunting down delicious strains of coffee in some of the most dangerous places on the planet. As owner of La Colombe Torrefaction, the company he started in the 1990s with just a few dollars in his pocket, Carmichael's business supplies direct-trade coffee to some of the top chefs and hotels in America.

"Dangerous Grounds" will return to the network with eight all-new one-hour episodes and is produced by Nancy Glass Productions.

"Hotel Impossible"

Hotel "fixer," Anthony Melchiorri returns for a fourth season to turn struggling hotels into bustling tourist destinations.

"Hotel Impossible" will return to the network with 13 all-new one-hour episodes and is produced by Atlas Media Corp.

"Mysteries at the Museum"

In the sixth season of "Mysteries at the Museum," the series continues to span the country, exploring local archives, storefront collections and the hallowed halls of stately institutions, to uncover the objects and artifacts that reveal the nation's hidden secrets.
