Episodes Will Be Available on Ovation TV, Ovation NOW, and Travel-Focused AVOD Service Journy
Los Angeles, CA: Ovation, America’s only arts network, has acquired the U.S. broadcast and digital rights for four seasons of Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations (72 x 60’) from Discovery. The deal includes seasons five through eight of the award-winning travel and food show. The announcement was made today by Scott Woodward, EVP Programming, Ovation.
Bad-boy chef and best-selling author Anthony Bourdain hit both familiar culinary hotspots and out-of-the-way gems in his global quest for the ultimate dining experience. Along the way, Bourdain offered his perspective on both the food and the local customs he came across in his travels.
“Ovation is constantly looking to expand the programming slate of our JOURNY service, which explores arts and culture around the globe,” stated Woodward. “To do so with a guide as revered as Anthony Bourdain is fantastic. We’re honored to welcome No Reservations to Ovation.”
This selection of episodes includes Bourdain’s memorable trips to Vietnam, Rome, Beirut and Cuba; the Season 5 episode where Bourdain answered the top 10 viewer questions based on the results of an online poll; the Season 6 and Season 8 Holiday Specials; and the series finale set in Brooklyn, NY. Prepare to be surprised, terrified, disgusted and thoroughly entertained.
Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations will air on Ovation starting on June 6, 2019; season 5 will be available on Journy starting in August. Episodes will also be available on Ovation NOW.
