UPDATE: The Philadelphia episode of The Layover is set to air on Monday, December 3 at 9 p.m.
In just over a month, we’ll get to see those shots on the small screen, when The Layover debuts November 19 at 9 p.m.
The show profiles what a traveler can do in a city in 24 to 48 hours. The spotlighted cities in Season Two range from Paris to Taipei to Sao Paolo to Dublin. Pretty cool to see Philadelphia in the mix.
While Bourdain was here in Philadelphia, he stopped into a huge variety of restaurants, museums and other attractions, including the Barnes Foundation, Di Bruno Bros. and Paesano’s in the Italian Market, Mutter Museum, Paesano’s, Amis, Dirty Frank’s and more.
It’s anyone guess what actually ends up surviving the cutting room floor and making it into the show. Although, we do know that he “intend[s] to be the first food/travel show to do a cheesesteak-free Philly show.” So there’s that.
Take a sneak peek at some production shots of the Philadelphia episode of The Layover Season Two, above and below.
And bear in mind that Bourdain is set to narrate and executive produce a new show on PBS called Mind of a Chef featuring Chef David Chang, plus a Sunday primetime show on CNN starting in early 2013. So it’s possible that this season of The Layover could be its last.
