Complex Networks’ brand First We Feast delves into the world of Japanese comfort cooking in the six-episode YouTube series Gochi Gang.
Inspired by “gochisousama,” the traditional Japanese way to show appreciation after a good meal, Gochi Gang explores the cultural impact of Japanese cuisine in the U.S.
Host Reina Scully (pictured left) eats her way through Japan’s most delicious meals with a lineup of food and pop culture personalities, highlighting six unique aspects of the cuisine.
Episodes, which air Tuesdays at 11 a.m. ET/PT, include a Japanese market tour with Bon Appétit’s Claire Saffitz and YouTuber Mike Chen; Wagyu tasting with YouTuber Philip DeFranco and Hot Ones host Sean Evans; and Anime food crash-course featuring rapper Denzel Curry, musician Thundercat and comedian Zack Fox, among others.
Chris Schonberger and Jackson Connor are executive producers for Complex Networks. Connor also serves as director. Lawrence Weibman is supervising producer.
The series is the latest in First We Feast’s slate of food programming. Most recently, WarnerMedia’s truTV ordered the 20-episode competition series Hot Ones: The Game Show, based on the web series.
