Ryan Seacrest, Jamie Oliver plan new food reality show
ABC has ordered six episodes of a new "unscripted" (I hate that term, but "reality" is even farther off the mark) series produced by British chef Jamie Oliver and American Idol host Ryan Seacrest, according to a story in the Hollywood Reporter.
It will feature makeovers of America's unhealthiest cities, a description that raises more questions that it answers. The show, which doesn't have a name yet, will air sometime next year.
While we're at it, anyone want to take a crack at a name? ...
The story says that the six cities being made over will be chosen from a list of America's fattest cities. When I Googled, the only list I found was one in that fine scientific publication Men's Fitness.
Unfortunately, Baltimore is probably too low down at No. 17 to be in the running, and too high up to be healthy.
