TRAVEL CHANNEL TRIPLE STACKS THREE ORIGINAL SERIES ON TUESDAY NIGHTS PREMIERING ON OCTOBER 4

Discover What Is "Made in America" With Host George Motz At 8:00 p.m. ET/PT And Join Host Don Wildman As He Unveils Amazing "Mysteries At The Museum" At 9:00 p.m. ET/PT And Journeys Behind Locked Gates In "Off Limits" At 10:00 p.m. ET/PT

Chevy Chase, Md. (August 15, 2011) - Travel Channel has triple-stacked Tuesday nights this fall with three original series premiering on Tuesday, October 4. Primetime on Tuesdays will kick off at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT with the launch of the half-hour original series "Made in America," hosted by George Motz. The 13-episode series investigates all the wonderful and wacky things that are made within our borders. Consummate explorer, Don Wildman, does double duty as he hosts the one-hour 12-episode original series "Mysteries at the Museum," premiering at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT, and the one-hour returning series, "Off Limits," premiering at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. Whether peeling back forbidden corners of cities or bringing to light the puzzling and intriguing stories behind museum artifacts, Wildman takes viewers on an adventure every Tuesday night with the mission to expose the real truth lying beneath the surface.

And it all begins with asking that first question...

Ever wonder what a sports car and a jellybean have in common? They're both made in America! Join "Made In America" host George Motz as he explores 39 factories that crank out some of the most ingenious products this country has to offer. During his coast to coast journey, Motz travels to Lynchburg, the home of Jack Daniels, where he finds out how to make whiskey Tennessee-style. He also heads to sunny Santa Cruz, California where the two-wheeled revolution began at Zero Motorcycles, makers of the first fully electric motorcycle. Motz even braves the cold winter in Maine to build his very own custom shoe at New Balance. In upcoming episodes, he visits the Louisville Slugger factory in Kentucky, where a million bats a year are churned out; heads to Greensboro, North Carolina to create the most iconic American treat, the Krispy Kreme glazed donut; and he travels to Jackson Center, Ohio, where he constructs a little piece of Americana, a sleek aluminum Airstream trailer.

"Made In America" is produced by Hoff Productions, Inc. for the Travel Channel. For Hoff, the executive producers are Michael Hoff and Ashley Adams, the supervising producer is Rena Ferrick and the series producer is Julie Nelson. The executive producer for Travel Channel is Liza Keckler.

In "Mysteries at the Museum," viewers join host Don Wildman each week on a journey across the United States, going deep into the vaults of the nation's most revered institutions and unearthing wondrous treasures from the past - often strange and curious remnants of the momentous events that have shaped our history. Behind each extraordinary artifact is yet another story to be told and secret to be revealed - tales brimming with scandal, mystery, murder and intrigue. From Washington D.C.'s Spy Museum, where an unassuming black umbrella conceals a Russian assassin's poison pellets, to the University of New Hampshire Library's collection where a tattered purple dress provides alleged evidence of America's first alien abduction. These are the places where the diverse history of our country is on display.

"Mysteries at the Museum" is produced by Optomen Productions, Inc. for the Travel Channel. For Optomen, the executive producers are Nicola Moody and Dominic Stobart and the series producer is Dana K. Ross. The executive producer for Travel Channel is David E. Gerber.

In "Off Limits," explorer Don Wildman is back on a quest into the forbidden, hidden and unseen spaces across America with seven all new episodes. With a take-no-prisoners approach, he'll unearth the truths of our past and find their secret connections to our future, as he investigates sites off the grid. Locations include a yellow submarine sunk in the Coney Island Creek; the most famous beachfront resort that once served as the location for the Elvis Presley film "Blue Hawaii," now rotting away from neglect; and the crumbling ruins of an elaborate castle fortress once the home of the biggest arms dealer in the world. Wildman's "Off Limits" explorations cross the country from New York City to Boston, Hawaii, St. Louis, Pittsburgh and Minneapolis.

The series is produced by Authentic Entertainment, An Endemol Company, for the Travel Channel. For Authentic, the executive producers are Tom Rogan and Lauren Lexton, and the co-executive producer is Chris Bray. The executive producer for Travel Channel is Julie Rose McCully.
