Never-ending quest
Adam Richman has an insatiable appetite — in all senses of the word. The host of TLC’s ‘Man Vs Food’ travels to various food towns across America, visits legendary local eating
establishments and meets the staff and patrons.

Whether he is relishing the Atomic Hot Wings platter in Pittsburgh or a 13-pound pizza in Atlanta, watch Adam ra­c­e against time and stretch the limits of the human stomach to polish off these monst­er challenges. ‘Man Vs Food’ airs on September 13 at 10.30 pm.

With hard work and dedication
Channel V catches the pulse of the next generation by presenting a new serial about a young girl trying to make her mark in the world of boxing. It’s a story of true grit and determination against many trials and tribulations.

Humse Hai Liife revolves around young Sia (Abigail Jain), who dreams of becoming a successful boxer just like her father, and treads the highroad of hard work and dedication to achieve her dreams.

The show was conceptualised around the notion that women in our country have to toil that much harder in careers that are conventionally dominated by men.

Humse Hai Liife is about a headstrong Sia, played by Abigail Jain who hails from Adarsh Colony, Delhi, and is known to be an achiever. She believes that excelling in boxing will be her ticket out of her hometown.

Sia rightly wins a scholarship to the Elite School, where coach Birendra (Ankur Nayyar) reinforces her belief that she can truly reach her goal. The story moves on to her struggle in the school and problems with Raghav, the male protagonist (played by Himansh Kohli).
Humse Hai Liife airs on Channel V on September 13 at 7.30 pm.

Rising from the ashes
Discovery Channel presents ‘Rising — Rebuilding Ground Zero’ on September 13 at 9 pm. From executive producer Steven Spielberg, DreamWorks Television and Discovery Channel comes the story of hope from darkness, life from ashes, a dream born from a nightmare.

 ‘Rising — Rebuilding Ground Zero’ showcases the men and women determined to rebuild and restore a sacred site, constructing the new, 104-storey One World Trade Center. The series celebrates the grit, the drive and the audacious imagination of a wide array of builder, planner and dreamers bonded in grief but united in purpose.
