Coker, Connolly, Harper at center of potential series
Travel Channel has greenlit three pilots and begun development on two others.Among the pilots ordered are “Barn Finds,” which centers on antique car expert Corky Coker and his free-wheeling Deep South roadtrip in pursuit of automotive diamonds-in-the-rough, and an untitled global travel project from author and photographer Kevin Michael Connolly, who was born without legs. The third greenlit pilot is “Power Trip With Jason Harper,” featuring the travel, car and lifestyle journalist. New in development for Travel are “Coffee Hunter” (Nancy Glass Prods.), involving the search for the world’s best cups of coffee, and “City Swappers” (Stone Circle Films), about couples who exchange homes, cars, friends and favorite restaurants as they go to each other’s hometowns.
