Guy Fieri has visited thousands of restaurants on his fan-favorite road show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, literally putting food-road shows on the map. Now, Guy and his team of television and culinary experts set out to search for all-star talent to lead Food Network’s next big culinary-travel series. After receiving and sorting through thousands of submissions from hopeful hosts with promising concepts, Guy narrowed it down to a final group of prospects that will vie to have their idea developed into a show on Guy's Big Project.
Taking the most-promising prospects out on the road to see who has what it takes to be a success, the competition begins with the finalists picking a restaurant that best represents them and their show idea, where they film a pitch video to convey what their show would be about. Then, the pressure heats up as they whip up a meal that embodies their idea in Guy’s personal kitchen. As the season progresses, the prospects are put through the paces by Guy and his team, learning that there is a lot more to hosting a food-television show than a passion for food and cooking skills. From describing each bite of food in order to convey the flavors, aromas and textures, to engaging the audience while eating and interviewing a wide variety of chefs, there is a lot to digest especially when your hopes and dreams are on the line.
Guy's Big Project invites viewers behind-the-scenes to see how a series goes from a passionate idea to a reality on-air. The six-episode journey begins on Sunday, November 5th at 9pm ET/PT and documents every twist and turn as the prospects move from initial pitch through development to network review, to the ultimate end goal - the premiere of a new show on Food Network.
