Travel Channel acquires beer-themed series
Fans help fuel pickup of 'Three Sheets' from Fine LivingThanks largely to fans on Facebook and other social media sites and a highly targeted shipment of beer, "Three Sheets" will be making its permanent bed on the Travel Channel.
The travelogue about the worldwide culture of beer had a trial run from April to May on the network. After receiving letters (and some frothy brew) from die-hard fans, Travel has acquired all the back episodes of the show from the Fine Living cabler and will resume airing episodes.
Hosted by comedian Zane Lamprey, two episodes of the show will follow "Bert the Conqueror" and "Man V. Food" on Wednesdays and air in a one-hour block that begins at 11 p.m.
Fine Living recently morphed into the Cooking Channel, so "Three Sheets" was homeless until the Travel Channel bellied up to the bar.
