Upcoming shows refresh food and travel genres with multicultural focus

Three new series coming to PBS bring new talent and multicultural storytelling to popular lifestyle formats — food and travel programming.

The third series, planned for a winter 2023 debut, is American Historia, a travelogue hosted by actor John Leguizamo that will showcase “lost Latino heroes” who made outstanding contributions throughout history.
