U.S. net Travel Channel has set a June premiere for the docuseries Watt’s World, which follows Emmy-award winning journalist Nick Watt on his chase for the truth behind the world’s idiosyncrasies.
The previously announced series shadows the Scottish reporter and producer as he traverses the globe to examine such queries as why some Albanians hang stuffed animals from their window sills and whether living lawless and rent-free in California’s Slab City is more appealing than life in the sleepy Italian countryside of Le Marche.
The 13 x 30-minute series will see Watt travel to a variety of locations such as Albania, France, Cuba, Dominica, Saba and Montserrat, Italy, as well as a number of American states and cities.
“Nick Watt is a great addition to our team of informative storytellers that connect our viewers to the world around us,” said Ross Babbit, senior VP of programming and development for Travel Channel, in a statement.
The Lincoln Square-produced series for Travel Channel bows June 30 with back-to-back episodes starting at 10 p.m. Executive producers for Watt’s World are Danielle A. Rossen for Lincoln Square Productions and Dale Roy for Travel Channel.
