The series kicks off the first of six new episodes on June 7th at 10pm et/pt with “Street Eats,” a delicious account of the world’s oldest and most beloved way to dine: on the street. Our experts chew on the savory history of the food trucks and sophisticated finger foods that have helped build communities and bring people together of every ethnicity and viewers will meet the surprising people that helped cook up the our cultural melting pot and the modern day pioneers that are elevating street food from grunge to gourmet.

The first installment of LOVE LUST debuted on Sundance Channel in February 2011, kicking off fashion week with stories of iconic sartorial staples like the “Bikini,” and “The Little Black Dress.” Four hour-long episodes unraveled the origin, and stitched together the evolution of various fashion must-haves.
