Skeins to cater to general-interest auds

NEW YORK — Food Network plans to unveil 950 hours of original programming this year, including two primetime series that will debut this summer.

Although the cabler declined to say how much money it is sinking into original programming, a spokeswoman said the investment has increased 67% from last year.

Food Network will continue to diversify its lineup with shows geared to general-interest audiences rather than food professionals.

Set to premiere in July, the weekly outdoor adventure series “Appetite for Adventure” will be hosted by Tori Ritchie and chef/mountain climber Joey Altman.

“Unwrapped,” which began as a series of specials, will become a weekly series in July. Marc Summers will host the show, which investigates popular foods.

The net will devote an entire weekend to cult hit “Iron Chef” June 1-3. The weekend will culminate with “Iron Chef 21st Century Battle.”

Food Network is available in 56 million households.
