Vox Media Makes Network TV Move By Bringing Eater’s ‘No Passport Required’ To PBS

Vox Media is heading to network television with an open mind and an empty stomach. The media company's Eater brand is behind No Passport Required, a series about food and culture that will star celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson and will premiere on PBS.

In No Passport Required, Samuelsson will venture across the United States, exploring culinarily-rich neighborhoods as he goes. His itinerary includes the Ethiopian section of D.C. and the Vietnamese community in New Orleans, Variety notes. The formula Eater is employing here is reminiscent of the one Anthony Bourdain has used to become a household name. Even the titles are similar: Samuelsson's show is No Passport Required, while one of Bourdain's first forays into TV was titled No Reservations.

Vox Media, which has already established an expansive lineup of digital content and secured $200 million in funding from NBCUniversal, has recently increased its investment in long-form content. To execute that strategy,

A Double Dose of Noah Baumbach Comes to Netflix Next Month, Plus ‘Before Midnight,’ ‘Donnie Darko,’ and More
While October usually signals the arrival of all sorts of spooky, creepy, scary, and otherwise appropriately Halloween-themed films to both theaters and streaming services, this month’s batch of new titles on Netflix offers up a delightfully wide variety of choices that aren’t all tied to the year’s primary celebration of fear. Sure, those titles are there — from more mainstream chillers like “Cult of Chucky” and the new original “The Babysitter,” to more offbeat picks like the cannibal coming-of-age tale “Raw” and the seminal “Donnie Darko” — but this month’s incoming list has more than enough for movie fans who don’t want to shriek at their televisions.

HBO’s well-received limited series “The Night Of” will wrap up its eight-part whodunnit in late August. Steve Zaillian’s gritty drama, which examines a man’s fate after he wakes up charged with the murder of a relative stranger, debuted to rave reviews from critics and audiences. IndieWire’s Ben Travers writes, “By actively engaging on personal and political levels, Zaillian sucks the viewer into a nightmare scenario wholly dependent on two verdicts: first, whether or not Naz is found guilty, but also if he really did it.” Here’s hoping the series can maintain its slow burn thrills all the way to the end.
