FYI’S HIT SERIES “FOOD PORN” IS BACK FOR SECONDS

HOST MICHAEL CHERNOW EXPLORES DROOL-WORTHY #FOODPORN IN NATIONWIDE HUNT FOR MOST POPULAR DISHES ON SOCIAL MEDIA

SEASON TWO PREMIERES SUNDAY, MAY 14 AT 10PM ET

 

NEW YORK, NY – April 12, 2017 – New York restaurateur Michael Chernow is back to take the foodie scene by storm with season two of FYI’s hit series, "Food Porn,” as he sets out to uncover the nation’s most mouth-watering dishes and delves into one of the most popular hashtags on social media. Thirteen half-hour episodes will begin premiering on Sunday, May 14 at 10pm ET.

People are obsessed with taking pictures, sharing and discussing the food they eat on social media. In “Food Porn,” from Loud TV and Bethenny Frankel’s B Real Productions, viewers follow Michael across the US as he searches for the most buzzed about food in America, meeting today’s tastemakers – the everyday people behind the delicious online posts – and discovering what makes these meals so distinctive and worthy to share online. Michael also gets his hands dirty in the kitchen, as he meets with the chefs responsible for creating these delectable dishes to find out what’s in them and why they are so insanely popular.

"Next to experiencing a great meal is capturing an amazing food picture,” said executive producer Bethenny Frankel. "But, even the best picture can’t tell the whole story, and I’m obsessed with the next season of ‘Food Porn,’ which continues to bring these posts to life and recognizes some incredible chefs and dishes." 

In season two of “Food Porn,” Michael discovers new food trends and uncovers secret culinary hotspots with dishes that aren’t even featured on the menu. From Hollywood’s most exclusive dinner party, to a former church turned restaurant in Charleston and an innovative food truck in Portland that serves up cheeseburger dumplings – viewers will be drooling over these mouth-watering meals. Other featured dishes this season include a pizza muffin, a deep-fried strawberry rhubarb pie in Nashville, a lavish poke bowl in Hawaii and more.

In a shortform piece, produced by 45th & Dean, Michael takes on the ultimate fitness challenge to help counter all the delicious #foodporn samplings. Viewers follow Michael as he attempts to go from 10% body fat down to just 3% in only 30 days with an extreme workout regimen. The shortform piece will air on FYI and post on the brand’s digital and social platforms.
