ANTHONY BOURDAIN TURNS TRAVEL MISFORTUNE INTO OPPORTUNITY IN "THE LAYOVER," TRAVEL CHANNEL'S NEW ORIGINAL SERIES PREMIERING MONDAY, NOVEMBER 21 AT 9:00 PM, ET/PT

Hour-Long Weekly Travel Log Explores How To Make The Most Out Of 24-48 Hours At An Unexpected Destination

Chevy Chase, Md - August 10, 2011 - Anthony Bourdain, contemporary cultural anthropologist, best-selling author and host of the Emmy-winning series, "No Reservations," turns the travel genre on its head in Travel Channel's newest original series, "The Layover."

Beginning Monday, November 21st at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT , Bourdain is back like never before with a high octane series that gives him just 24-48 hours to explore an unexpected destination. Viewers get a ringside seat as Tony goes on the hunt for local intel and explores the essential "must see" places, people and foods in locations throughout the U.S., Asia and Europe. His itineraries, completely off the beaten track and all completed within a matter of hours, are mini-trips of a lifetime. No nonsense and budget friendly, Bourdain reveals insider tips that only the most seasoned travelers would know.

In each hour-long episode of the 10-part series, Bourdain 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.

"'The Layover' is a fast, busy and content-filled hour," comments Bourdain. "We go to spots that I personally think are cool and fun for all budgets. In every case, these are places where I either did go, or would visit even when the cameras are off. 'The Layover' is a reflection of what I've learned over time. It's about telling a story that viewers can recreate themselves."

Travel Channel has partnered with the award-winning production company, Zero Point Zero to produce "The Layover" series. They also produce the network's critically acclaimed and Emmy award winning travel series, 'Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations', which is now in its seventh season and recently earned four 2011 Emmy nominations. Chris Collins, Lydia Tenaglia and Anthony Bourdain will serve as executive producers for Zero Point Zero, and Stone Roberts will serve as the executive producer for the Travel Channel.

Anthony Bourdain is a 28-year veteran of professional kitchens, having worked as a dishwasher, line cook and chef in places good, bad and horrible -- most of them in New York City. In 2000, he published a memoir of his experiences in the culinary underbelly. "Kitchen Confidential" became an unlikely, but enduring, international bestseller. He has since milked that lucky break for everything it's worth, following up with the gonzo-travel diary, "A Cook's Tour"; a historical account of the notorious turn-of-the-century cook and disease carrier, "Typhoid Mary"; the crime novels "A Bone in the Throat," "Gone Bamboo" and "The Bobby Gold Stories"; "The Les Halles Cookbook"; a collection of essays entitled "The Nasty Bits"; and the companion book to the Travel Channel series, 'No Reservations'. His recently released, "Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook", is the long-awaited follow-up to "Kitchen Confidential", and is an insider's perspective on the changes in the restaurant business. Since embarking on a round-the-world trip for "A Cook's Tour," he has continued traveling for 'No Reservations' (now in its seventh season), for various publications, for public-speaking engagements and because he likes it. He lives in New York City with his wife, Ottavia, and his daughter, Ariane.
