Global streaming giant Netflix has commissioned its second food-focused program from James Beard Award-winning chef and Ugly Delicious star David Chang.

Produced by Morgan Neville‘s Tremolo Productions in association with Chang’s Majordomo Media, each episode of Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner will trace Chang (pictured) and a different celebrity guest as they take to the streets to explore a single city, its culture and its cuisine. As the pair travels through each city, they will also uncover surprising new things about themselves.

The culinary program is executive produced by Morgan Neville, Dara Horenblas, David Chang, Christopher Chen and Caryn Capotosto alongside Blake Davis and Chris Ying who serve as co-exec producers.

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner will launch globally across Netflix in the fall. In addition, Chang recently completed filming on the sophomore season of Netflix’s Ugly Delicious. Exact air dates for the two food programs have yet to be set.

“There’s something about traveling with someone that opens you up. Being away from all the craziness of daily life, you spend long days together in an unfamiliar place with nothing to do but wander the street, share meals, and talk,” said Chang, in a statement. “That’s what BLD is all about — learning more about ourselves, our friends, and the people we encounter out in the world. Plus, of course, the ridiculously delicious meals we share.”

BLD is a chance to take everything I’ve loved about working on Ugly Delicious — big conversations, great food, world travel — and put it together in one large smorgasbord,” added Neville. “It’s been great to take a moment to get deep while breaking bread.”
