As fans mourned Anthony Bourdain in June, CNN aired past episodes of his acclaimed food travel series, "Parts Unknown," and proceeded to air the last three episodes in the 11th season of the show.
But there is still more of Bourdain to come. First, the 12th season of "Parts Unknown" is set to air this fall. The episodes were not finished when Bourdain died, but the Los Angeles Times reports producers are using audio of Bourdain from the set to complete the work.
Now, CNN also says it is producing a documentary film about the continent-hopping chef who grew up in Leonia.
Vanity Fair reports the film will be screened at festivals and be released in theaters before airing on CNN. The report says the film, which could be out by 2019, is currently in pre-production, and that the project is a collaboration with Zero Point Zero, the production company responsible for "Parts Unknown."
"As well as we knew Tony, because he did reveal himself in the series, there was still a hunger to know more about him, and to honor his work and celebrate him," Amy Entelis, CNN's executive vice president for talent and content, told Vanity Fair. "The documentary format became one of the more obvious ways to go." Among the other films that CNN has produced is "RBG," the documentary about Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, which has been in theaters and will air on the network on Sept. 3.
Bourdain, who when 61 when he died by suicide in France on June 8, was born in New York but attended Englewood's Dwight-Englewood High School and spent his summers at the Jersey Shore. The writer, chef and ultimate foodie dedicated a 2015 episode of "Parts Unknown" to New Jersey and did the same 10 years prior with his Travel Channel series, "No Reservations."

After much deliberation we have the 10 finalists in our N.J.'s best hot dog joint showdown.
To recap, we started last month with a call for nominations. More than 100 places were nominated; all were put on ballots, separated onto North I, North II, Central and South Jersey/The Shore. The top six vote-getters in each region were 24 of our semifinalists; I picked the other 26, and visited all 50 semifinalists over three weeks. I alone picked the 10 finalists; no voting was involved in their selection.
Many legendary hot dog joints were left off the finalist list, and there were surprise newcomers. But as with all our previous N.J.'s best showdowns, this competition wasn't about popularity, ranking or reputation — it was about the hot dogs sampled at each place during the competition. You can vote starting now for the Readers' Choice winner; the poll is below. I will pick the overall winner.

The list of New Jersey high schools with the highest average SAT scores isn't what you would call geographically even.
