From French Caribbean flavors with Chef Hot Pants to an all-American road trip with a Route 66 expert, Travels with Darley’s newest season debuts on PBS stations across the nation starting in March and April.

Marking the third season and 18th half hour of the series, which launched on AOL as digital shorts in 2014 and PBS in January 2016, award-winning PBS TV host Darley Newman meets locals in each location to uncover hidden gems and show the familiar with a twist. The debut episode of the new season takes viewers to stunning Martinique in the French Caribbean, where Darley enlists locals to uncover the best places for rum tasting, traditional fishing, French Creole cuisine and to explore the island’s rich history. In the village of Le Carbet, she learns about a generations old fishing method and the island’s fresh cuisine with Chef Guy Ferdinand, otherwise known as Chef Hot Pants, at his restaurant on a black sand beach.

In Hong Kong, she dines on Dim Sum at the world’s cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant, Tim Ho Wan, and discovers hip neighborhoods on the ultimate city tour. A Wyoming adventure takes viewers to national forests to bike, fish, hike and volunteer amid pristine nature around popular Jackson Hole and Laramie and lesser visited Saratoga and Pinedale.

Not far from Chicago, Darley drives Route 66 in a classic car to visit surprising natural sites and well-preserved historic attractions, meeting bison at Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie and taking in history at the Rialto Square Theatre, an architectural masterpiece where famous stars of the past and present, including Red Skelton, Bob Hope and Jerry Seinfeld, have performed. In Ottawa, viewers learn about Illinois history and modern Midwestern culture while cycling through the city and exploring the Illinois River by canoe, capping off a truly diverse season.

The same Emmy-winning team that produces the long running PBS series “Equitrekking,” which Darley also hosts and created, produces “Travels with Darley”.
