Anthony Bourdain’s ‘Parts Unknown’ on the Lower East Side Airs this Fall
No longer in doubt, CNN confirmed this week that the posthumous season of Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown will air in the fall. Meaning, the highly-anticipated Lower East Side treatments will follow.
Apparently, only one episode was completed before Bourdain’s tragic suicide in France eight weeks ago, according to the Los Angeles Times. The remaining few will be edited without Bourdain’s signature narration.
From the dispatch:
Only one episode — a trip to Kenya with W. Kamau Bell, the host of CNN’s “United Shades of America” — was completed before Bourdain’s death. It will be the last to have Bourdain’s written narration, which gives the series its personal tone.
Four others set in Manhattan’s Lower East Side — in addition to the Big Bend area of Texas along the border of Mexico, the Asturias region of Spain and Indonesia — will be completed by the directors who filmed them for the show’s production company Zero Point Zero, Entelis said. They will use audio of Bourdain gathered while shooting on location. Follow-up interviews are also being shot to help tie elements of the programs together.
