HBO Max has ordered an unscripted cooking competition series created and hosted by Schitt’s Creek star Dan Levy.
The Big Brunch, a project from Levy and production company Boardwalk Pictures, will center around brunch dining experiences and will feature chefs offered the opportunity to share their stories and business dreams while competing for a prize. The series is scheduled to premiere next year.
“Everybody has a friend, a family member, or a co-worker that is extraordinary at what they do, they just need a leg up so that their talents can be appreciated on a larger scale,” Levy said in a statement. “Thanks to an almost obsessive love of food, I’ve been lucky enough to come across many of those people in the culinary world — friends working out of cafes or food trucks, revolutionizing the menus at local diners — those special humans who create communities around their cooking, hoping to take their skills to the next level. I created this show for them, the local culinary heroes of America who deserve a spotlight.”
The series is the latest food-themed unscripted series from Boardwalk Pictures, following such titles as Chef’s Table and Street Food.
A travel series for competing streamer Apple TV+ featuring and executive produced by Levy’s father and Schitt’s Creek co-star, Eugene Levy, was also unveiled today (November 1).
