Anthony Bourdain Talks CNN Partnership, Season 4 of ‘Parts Unknown’

In advance of the upcoming fourth season of Parts Unknown (September 28), Anthony Bourdain recently spoke to Worldscreen about how the show has progressed, and what it was like to move from the Travel Channel to CNN.

“Well, the world opened up,” says Bourdain. “CNN is an international newsgathering organization with resources everywhere, experience everywhere, correspondents who’ve worked everywhere.

So nothing is off the table. We've shot in the Congo, Libya, Iran — those are all destinations that would have been impossible [on another network]. Also, I have to say, they’ve given me a degree of freedom and latitude to go anywhere I like, to do what I want when I get there, and tell the story in any style I like to. They’ve been really supportive of that from the beginning. They’re making it possible for me and the people I work with, my creative partners, to do the best work of our lives.”
