Carnival Corporation is teaming up with A+E Networks as it expands its original content with the premiere of Good Spirits.
The (30×10) series showcases cocktail chef Matthew Biancaniello as he sails the world on the company’s cruise lines in search of intriguing everyday people who join him as he collects native, fresh ingredients for his unique cocktail creations.
Custom short-form vignettes will debut on air and natively across FYI and social and digital platforms throughout the series’ 10-week run that showcase how-to-drink recipes inspired by each new episode.
The series is the fourth originally produced program in Carnival Corporation’s portfolio of experiential content. Other titles include ABC’s Ocean Treks with Jeff Corwin, NBC’s The Voyager with Josh Garcia and Vacation Creation which airs on the CW Network.
“We are thrilled to be working with Carnival Corporation on this unique partnership,” Jim Hoffman, EVP of strategic initiatives, A+E Networks, said in a statement. “Good Spirits fits perfectly at A+E Networks where our diverse portfolio of brands reaches a young, upscale audience with premium, original content across multiple platforms.”
Good Spirits will air on FYI, beginning Thursday, Feb. 16 at 6 p.m. ET/PT and A&E on Feb. 20 at 2 p.m. ET/PT.
