Food Network fave Guy Fieri has inked a new multi-year exclusive deal with the Discovery-owned brand.
The deal will serve up more seasons of Fieri’s Emmy-nominated series Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives as well as more episodes of Guy’s Grocery Games and Tournament of Champions, as well as new projects that Fieri is already cooking up for both Food Network and Discovery+.
Fieri will continue to take an active role in the development and production of his own series through his Knuckle Sandwich production banner and continue to partner with the network and producers from his long-running series.
“Guy Fieri infuses his unmatched energy and passion into every show he makes,” Courtney White, president of Food Network, said in a statement. “He is truly one-of-a-kind, adored globally for his own love of food and his deep appreciation for the people behind the restaurant scenes. I am beyond thrilled to be able to continue this extraordinary, creative partnership.”
Food Network fans first got a taste of Fieri during his first appearance on the network in 2006 when he won season two of The Next Food Network Star. Additional series that have helped to make the energetic host a household name include: Guy’s Big Bite, Guy Off The Hook, Guy Fieri’s Road Show, Guy’s Family Road Trip, Guy & Hunter’s European Vacation, Guy’s Ranch Kitchen, and his recent documentary, Restaurant Hustle 2020: All on the Line, which documents chefs struggling to keep their businesses afloat during the pandemic.
“Food Network is my home and I’m stoked to continue the partnership with the entire Discovery family,” added Fieri. “The world of food is the ultimate unifier so having a global platform to share real-life stories of some of the most deserving chefs, restaurateurs, home cooks, entrepreneurs and anyone who just loves a good meal is an incredible opportunity. I can’t wait for everyone to see what we’re cookin’ up next.”
