In episode one, Jazz challenges her brothers to plan the menu for her daughter Nylah’s second birthday party based around a sophisticated ‘tea for two’ theme.

Triage Entertainment is producing the six-episode series with Smollett Collective Inc.

Smollett Eats begins airing on August 20 at 12:30 p.m. EST/PST.
