Latinx-skewing channel El Rey Network has begun production on the unscripted travelogue series United Tacos of America, which sets out to locate the best tacos in America.

Produced by Taco Journalism, United Tacos of America (8 x 30 minutes) will follow creators and hosts Mando Rayo and Jarod Neece as they embark on a journey across the country to discover new flavors, cultures and regional variations of the traditional Mexican dish.

Taco Journalism’s Mando Rayo and Jarod Neece are the executive producers alongside series director Dennis Burnett.

United Tacos of America is expected to debut this fall on the El Rey Network.

“I’m excited to explore and learn from taqueros and tortilleras, Abuelas y Tios and home cooks, rancheros and chefs that infuse their culture, family and traditions through the love of tacos,” said co-host and exec producer Rayo in a statement. “This journey will take us behind the scenes of cocinas across the U.S. and showcase this rich food culture and how tacos and Mexican food is and has always been part of the American experience.”

“Good food, especially tacos, brings people of all nationalities together,” added Robert Rodriguez, head of El Rey Network. “As a foodie myself I can’t be more excited that Mando and Jarod’s show United Tacos of America¬†will showcase the love we all share for Mexican food across this country. We are proud that El Rey Network is continuing its mission of highlighting the authentic and positive stories our culture brings to this amazing nation.”
