BBC America will launch Jamie Oliver-hosted “Jamie’s 30-Minute Meals” in its daytime lineup May 1.Distributed globally by FremantleMedia Enterprises, “Meals” will feature Oliver creating home-cooked meals from scratch in real time. “The years of me making pleasant suggestions are gone,” Oliver said. “I am going to tell you what to do, what to buy, when to turn your oven on and how to make these dishes. If you listen, you’ll end up with a feast of beautiful things on your table in less than half an hour. This is about making people brilliant, on a daily basis.” Zoe Collins is the show’s exec producer.
