Chrissy Teigen is about to get cooking for Hulu.
The social media maven and cookbook author has signed a two-year development deal at the streaming service and set a cooking show with celebrity chef David Chang as one of her first projects under the pact, Hulu announced during its upfront presentation to advertisers in New York Wednesday.
Tentatively titled “Family Style,” the show will be hosted by Chang and Teigen and revolve around the ways in which people express their love for friends and family by cooking and eating together, according to the streaming service.
Per Hulu: “Chrissy personifies the Hulu brand through her outspoken, passionate, authentic nature. Whether it’s her love of food, witty social media commentary, activism for social injustice and women’s rights, fans know Chrissy always tells it like it is. Now, under a new pact, Chrissy and her production company, Suit & Thai Productions, will curate and produce original content, which could range from scripted drama series to original talk shows. The Hulu platform is Chrissy’s oyster.”
Along with Teigen and her Suit & Thai Productions, Hulu is also partnering with Vox Media Studios and Chang’s Majordomo Media in a multi-year, multi-show deal with the trio of production companies to create “premium food-focused” original series.
“As the founder and chef of the Momofuku restaurant group, Chang brings a profound understanding of global food culture, while Vox Media Studios lends its world-class storytelling capabilities and a wealth of experience built through its food and travel network, Eater,” according to Hulu. “New York Times bestselling cookbook author Teigen will co-produce and headline a diverse cast of compelling and knowledgeable personalities — from household names and celebrated chefs to everyday home cooks — who will entertain and provoke viewers with a variety of inventive new shows.”
Aside from the Teigen-Chang cooking show, the deal includes a documentary series tentatively titled “Eater’s Guide to the World,” which “taps into Eater’s extensive knowledge of the most interesting and delicious restaurants on the planet.”
