History orders 'Around The World In 80 Ways' reality competition
By Christopher Rocchio, 05/05/2010
History announced it has ordered Around the World in 80 Ways, a new reality competition series that will follow two rivals as they race around the globe.
Around the World in 80 Ways will document the show's two "adventure-seeking hosts" as they use 80 uniquely different modes of transportation -- each of which can only be used once -- in an effort to travel around the globe faster than their competitor.
As they race around the world, the hosts will also highlight the different modes of transportation -- ranging from a unicycle to a B1 Bomber.
History has ordered 10 episodes of the series, which is being produced by Original Productions. It is currently slated to premiere next year.
In addition to Around the World in 80 Ways, History also renewed American Pickers, Ax Men, Ice Road Truckers, and Pawn Stars as part of its 2010-2011 programming schedule.
