Viewers of the Travel Channel have no doubt come across Adam Richman abusing his body by undergoing horrifically unhealthy food challenges on his series "Man v. Food." But those worried about Richman's health can breathe a little easier. His new series, "Adam Richman's Fandemonium," will keep Richman on the road but away from the deep-fried, batter-dipped, double-stuffed challenges of his youth.
The new series, unveiled at Travel Channel's "upfront" presentation to advertisers Tuesday in New York, will follow Richman around the country as he goes in search of the biggest and wildest fan events, including the Daytona 500 and the Kentucky Derby. The series premieres July 14.
Three other new series are also greenlit for production, including "Get Lost," about a husband-and-wife team (he's a U.S. Army Special Forces survival expert; she's a journalist) who get dropped into wild and untamed places with limited supplies and few clues as to their location.
"Best Daym Takeout" follows 6-foot-5-inch, 390-pound YouTube star Daymon Patterson as he travels the country in search of the best takeout food.
