Disney+ Announces Keke Palmer To Host New Series, “Foodtastic”
Disney+ has just made the big announcement that global superstar Keke Palmer is to be the host of the new series “Foodtastic”. Palmer is also set to be executive producer for the show that is an unscripted build competition series for Disney+.
Each episode challenges teams of contestants to create whimsical, larger-than-life, Disney-inspired works of art. The twist is that the materials being used for the artwork are food items including everything from cheese and butter to fruits and vegetables.
NYC’s City Cakes founder Chef Benny Rivera and FLOUR SHOP founder Amirah Kassem will serve as judges for “Foodtastic.” The 11-episode series started production this week and is slated to premiere on Disney+ later this year.
In each self-contained episode, three teams of food artists transform iconic characters into extravagant masterpieces that tell a story from Disney’s legendary IP. These food sculptures will be judged purely on their design, technical skills and narrative, and not by taste. Unused food from each competition will be donated to local food banks.
Keke Palmer (Disney+‘s “The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder”) is an actress, singer/songwriter and television personality. Most recently, she hosted the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards and was nominated for her work as a host on ABC’s “GMA3: Strahan, Sarah and Keke.” Palmer starred in the feature film “Hustlers,” opposite Jennifer Lopez, and recently wrapped production on the upcoming movie “Alice.” Currently, she is lending her voice to the new character “Maya” in the upcoming Disney+ revival “The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder.”
“Foodtastic” is produced by Endemol Shine North America. In addition to Palmer, Josh Silberman, Sarah Happel Jackson and Endemol Shine North America’s Sharon Levy, DJ Nurre and Michael Heyerman are executive producers.
