A+E’s New FYI Network Makes Bigger Bet On Cooking Series

FYI, the new A+E Networks-backed cabler slated to debut July, is adding more shows about cooking to its programming recipe.

The cable network, which is being created  out of the longstanding Bio, has greenlit “Midnight Feast,” a six-episode series of one-hour episodes in which three chefs compete to create a winning dish by scouring New York’s Chelsea Market for high-grade ingredients. The winning chef gets a cash prize, and the losers must pay their grocery bill. Chef Spike Mendelsohn hosts.

FYI has also ordered pilots for two other one-hour programs related to the culinary arts.

“Say It To My Face” gives chefs and restaurant owners a chance to defend themselves before their toughest online critics.  Critics and chefs or owners meet face to face to air grievances, and then with the mentorship of co-hosts Daniel Holzman and Michael Chernow, each restaurateur will make over their eatery.

“Reverse Course” follows chef and restaurateur Sam Talbot as he  tells the story of food in reverse, beginning with the final meal and working backwards. Viewers will follow the story from the meal being served, to the preparation and cooking, to the local sourcing .

FYI has already unveiled three other food-related series.

“Midnight Feast” is produced for FYI by Nerd TV. Jago Lee, John Farrar and Bob Kirsh are executive Producers for Nerd TV. executive producers for FYI are Gena McCarthy and Lauren Wohl.
