Tailgating Across America Featured In New Travel Channel Series

TailgatingTailgating happens at football games and other sporting events, concerts, festivals, fairs and just about any other place where Americans can set up a grill to celebrate before an event. At Super Bowl XLVII, coming up on February 3 in New Orleans, you can bet there will be plenty of tailgaters on hand. Chronicling tailgating all over the U.S., the Travel Channel has a new show coming up that promises to be a must-see for motivated fans who just can't get enough pre-game hoopla.

The original Travel Channel series, "Tailgate Takeover," will premiere this summer with 13 half-hour episodes hosted by food expert Adam Richman. Showing how some of the best NFL tailgaters party all football season, the show is set to detail some of the most amazing, over-the-top efforts by fans across the U.S.

"Travel Channel fan-favorite and food expert Adam Richman has crisscrossed the country sampling the most delicious and iconic food our nation has to offer. Now he's back, to takeover tailgating like never before," said Laureen Ong, President, Travel Channel in a TV By The Numbers report.

In parking lots of high schools, colleges and sports venues around the country, tailgating can start early and last as long as the actual event itself. Those planning tailgate parties have plans in place months in advance and come packed heavy with gear promoting their favorite team logo and colors.
Can't wait until summer? Looking for additional content for your own tailgating effort? Watch/record the Travel Channel's Super Bowl Tailgate Takeover on Wednesday, January 30 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. a one-hour special featuring the most incredible tailgate experiences leading up to Super Bowl XLVII.
