Skift Take

Parts Unknown does more than raise the standard for travel programming, it gives viewers a taste of the cinematic and content quality that they are missing on most programs across all categories today.

After winning its first two Emmy Awards last year, Anthony Bourdain’s CNN series Parts Unknown is up for another seven Emmys in 2014.

Last year the program won two Emmys for best information series and outstanding cinematography for nonfiction programming for season one’s  trip to Myanmar. This year the program made it into two more nomination categories: sound editing and picture editing.

Parts Unknown is the only travel programming amongst its competitors in each category, which include Vice on HBO, PBS documentaries and History Channel specials.

The program just wrapped up season three in which Bourdain and the ZPZ Productions crew traveled to Las Vegas, Brazil, northern Thailand, Mexico, and Russia.

>> Outstanding Writing for Nonfiction Programming
