'Hotel Impossible,' 'Baggage Battles' set for second seasons

Travel Channel has greenlit second seasons of “Hotel Impossible” and “Baggage Battles.”

Net has ordered 14 half-hour episodes of “Baggage Battles” and 13 one-hour episodes of “Hotel Impossible.” Production on both skeins is set to begin in July.

“Baggage Battles” centers around auction experts who bid on lost luggage and unclaimed property in the hopes of nabbing lucrative finds. “Hotel Impossible” revamps struggling hotels with the help of hotel-savvy Anthony Melchiorri.

“Our mission is to continue to provide our viewers with new original series that reimagines the travel experience,” said Travel Channel general manager Andy Singer. “These series allow our viewers to experience travel from a completely original perspective, giving them a peek behind the curtain through a fresh and unique lens.”

Travel Channel aims to bow season two of “Baggage Battles” toward the end of this year and the second season of “Hotel Impossible” in 2013.

“Hotel Impossible” is produced by Atlas Media and “Baggage Battles” by My Tupelo Entertainment.
