Viacom-owned LGBT-focused cable net Logo will host the world premiere of Emmy-winning Patty Ivins’ latest project Hungry.

Produced by Logo Documentary Films in association with PB&J Television and Bunim/Murray Productions, the film features three professional female chefs and restaurateurs working to create a path to success in the kitchen while overcoming the various challenges faced by women in the professional culinary world.

Chefs featured in the film are: Dakota Weiss, a former Top Chef contestant and owner of Estrella and Sweetfin Poke in LA; Pink Delongpre, owner of Bacon and Brine who is also ready to open a farm-to-table restaurant with her wife; and Sarah Kirnon, owner of Oakland’s Miss Ollie’s.

The documentary will also include interviews with leading names in the culinary industry including chefs Susan Feniger, Mary Sue Milliken, Amanda Cohen and Marcus Samuelsson, as well as Bon Appetit‘s former wine/spirits editor, Heather John Fogarty, LA Magazine‘s Patrick Kuh, and Good Food‘s Evan Kleiman.

Logo’s Pamela Post and Taj Paxton serve as exec producers alongside PB&J and Bunim/Murray Productions’ Gil Goldschein, Patty Ivins and Rob VanAlkemade.

Hungry will premiere on Nov. 17 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Logo.

Logo Documentary Films launched last summer with the intent of encapsulating stories that capture the diversity of LGBT lifestyle and culture.

“These three culinary rock stars provide a rare glimpse into the fascinating and complicated journey of being a woman, a chef and an entrepreneur,” said Paxton, exec producer of Logo Documentary Films, in a statement. “Through the stories of these chefs, we see every professional woman who excels in the face of adversity.”
