Congratulations to our friend and hamburger documentarian George Motz on his upcoming hamburger-themed TV show, Burger Land, based on his book Hamburger America. The two-episode pilot will air on the Travel Channel on September 2 at 7 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., with each episode featuring four burger joints (three from Motz's book and one chosen by a local). Whether the Travel Channel decides to go with a full season depends on the viewership of the pilot, so don't miss it!
