JOURNY’s January Lineup Includes the Premieres of Ben Fogle: Starting Up, Starting Over and Operation Unplugged
Ovation TV, America’s premier arts network, is pleased to announce the latest programming for its award-winning travel-entertainment digital channel, JOURNY. It’s a brand new year full of hope and resolutions. Through a specially curated slate of new and treasured programming, we propose your participation in two: a travel bucket list and a stronger connection to the earth. Streaming through the month of January, JOURNY premieres two series: Ben Fogle: Starting Up, Starting Over and Operation Unplugged under the New Year, Better Planet banner. The network has also curated a selection of JOURNY favorites such as Special Delivery and My Sri Lanka with Peter Kuruvita.
Ben Fogle: Starting Up, Starting Over follows the brave people who dared to quit their 9 to 5 working routine and pursue their dream of doing something they love. Each episode follows a different person or family who’ve had enough of the rat race. Then, Operation Unplugged takes eight self-proclaimed technology-obsessed people and unplugs them from their network, and strips them of all their devices! They will face one of their scariest challenges yet by being plunged into an adventure sans phone.
Viewers will also enjoy the specially curated lineup of the following titles:
– Special Delivery: Six hosts – all from very different backgrounds, but bound by a common mission: to undertake special deliveries that will meet real needs in faraway communities. These deliveries will bring them across a wide expanse of Asia, through places of spectacular scenic beauty. But the journeys to these remote regions will also be filled with unforeseen problems that will test their resolve, resilience, and character.
– My Sri Lanka with Peter Kuruvita: Chef Peter Kuruvita travels around his homeland, cooking traditional dishes against a spectacular scenery. Whether it is tea country pork or Jaffna crab curry, Peter’s journey takes him from leafy tea fields to the country’s picturesque coastline, which is known for an abundance of seafood.
