Anthony Bourdain Reveals New Details On His CNN Show ‘Parts Unknown’

Soon-to-be CNN host Anthony Bourdain did a Q&A with commenters at Gawker, and revealed a number of tidbits about his upcoming CNN program, “Parts Unknown.”

He wants to go to places the show has not visited, like Libya, Iran, Afghanistan, Congo, and, um, Detroit.

When CNN called and said they were interested, he responded with something of a test: “We then sent them three of our most fucked up shows and asked: ‘ Are you sure you want to do a show with US?”

There will be music. Great music: “Yes. The new title music is going to be AMAZING.”

Bourdain also talks about the recent Travel Channel incident, and cooking food. It is all worth a read.
