Andrew Zimmern, the popular chef and host of "Bizarre Foods" on the Travel Channel, will continue his globe-trotting ways on a second show that will begin airing on the cable network next year.

Deadline Hollywood says the new show, which has a working title of "Meter's Running," will feature Zimmern exploring new locales with cab drivers as his guides.

Zimmern will aim to discover the places where the locals go for food and fun in diverse locations such as Venice, Kashmir and the Deep South. There's no premiere date yet for the new show, but it's been given the go-ahead for eight episodes, according to the Star Tribune.

Zimmern's signature show, "Bizarre Foods: Delicious Destinations," has been renewed for a third season, the Star Tribune notes. Some of the locations Zimmern will visit in next year's season are: Bogota, Charleston, Honolulu, the Philippines, Providence, Seattle, Singapore and Tel Aviv.

Zimmern, who lives in Minneapolis, is also a television producer and author of several books and cookbooks.

He's recently launched a couple of other ventures, including a new home delivery service for gourmet meats on EVINE Live, a home shopping television network, which got off the ground in September.

Zimmern has also gotten into the stadium concession business. He's got an AZ Canteen location at Target Field, modeled after his food trucks, and he's also working on planning food concessions at the new Vikings stadium, which opens next year.
