Momofuku man David Chang and the consistently hilarious Chrissy Teigen, who just was named to this year’s Time 100 list, are going all-in on food television. And, no, they’re not working with Netflix. According to a press release, the two have united as part of a multiyear deal with Hulu, for which they and their respective production companies Majordomo Media and Suit & Thai Productions will create a variety of food shows.
The programs will be produced in partnership, as well, with Vox Media Studios and Eater. (Last week, Marcus Samuelsson won the James Beard Award for outstanding personality for Eater’s PBS show No Passport Required.) Hulu promises that the shows will feature “a diverse cast of compelling and knowledgeable personalities,” running the gamut from famous chefs to home cooks. Teigen has made her mark in the food world with her best-selling cookbooks, and being the sort of person you absolutely want to drink too many mai tais in the middle of the day with. For Chang, this certainly sounds like the next big step in his plan for world domination of televised eating and cooking.
