TRAVELS WITH DARLEY’s 10th Anniversary Season Features Bordeaux

After filming around the globe for over 15 years, Emmy nominated TV host and entrepreneur Darley Newman checks out the Southwestern capital

New York, NY (January 2023)- The 10th season of TRAVELS WITH DARLEY includes two episodes centered on Bordeaux, France. Each 30-minute episode will bring viewers insights into the deeper meaning of travel through diverse culture, cuisine, heritage, and history as told by the locals and Darley drawing on over a decade and a half of global travels. Launching starting in January 2023 on PBS stations, Darley’s Bordeaux episodes focus on wine and history, markets and villages.

“I’ve always looked to share lesser-known stories. As my crew and I reflect on filming ten seasons, I’m particularly excited about our episodes featuring ‘human interest journeys that will help those who watch reflect on the deeper meaning of travel and to value how stepping out of your comfort zone and taking the time to learn can enrich our lives and inspire us to be more than… beyond the bragging rights moments,” said Darley Newman, the series host and creator. “By traveling the world and getting to know new people and places, we can become better global citizens and more inspired people.”

The 10th season of Travels with Darley started airing on PBS early January and the Bordeaux episodes are scheduled to be broadcast starting the weeks of Feb 13th and Feb 20th both in Los Angeles on KCET and in New York.
