Nat Geo Lines up 2 New Travel Series From Gordon Ramsay, Jeff Goldblum

TCA 2018: Network greenlights ”Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted“ and ”The Curiosity of Jeff Goldblum“

National Geographic has picked up new travel series from Gordon Ramsay and Jeff Goldblum, the network announced on Wednesday.

“Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted,” slated to premiere in 2019, follows the celebrity chef as he embarks on anthropology-through-cuisine expeditions to unearth the most incredible people, places and flavors the world has to offer.

Each episode will include exploration and adventure with local food heroes; tracking down traditions, pastimes and customs that are specific to certain regions; and lighthearted competition testing Ramsay against the locals, pitting his own interpretations of regional dishes against the tried-and-true classics. Production is set to being in the fall, with a 2019 premiere date scheduled for the series.

“My passion for adventure has made me not only a better chef but also a fearless apprentice of all cultures, which makes it so exciting for me to work with National Geographic, who’ve been taking exploration to the limit for their entire storied history,” Ramsay said in a statement.

Goldblum’s 12-part series, tentatively titled “The Curiosity of Jeff Goldblum,” will probe the origins of and connections behind the most unassuming subjects — everything from balloons to coffee.

The series will feature experiments, myth-busting and consultations with scientific experts in an attempt to reveal the astounding science that lies right beneath our eyes.

“National Geographic has a knack for developing smart, immersive narratives that expand our understanding of the world around us in creative and entertaining ways,” said Goldblum. “Curiosity is a fundamental human trait; “The Curiosity of Jeff Goldblum (w.t.)” puts me in the driver’s seat, guiding viewers on a mind-blowing adventure where we break down the unexpectedly complex science behind seemingly basic things.”
