UKTV has commissioned a new travelling cookery show from Denham Productions fronted by Paul Hollywood.
Paul Goes to Hollywood (5×60’) follows GBBO star Paul Hollywood on a road trip across the USA. It will launch in 2019 on food channel, Good Food, and will also air on W. It is being distributed by Bomanbridge Media.
Combining his passion for baking, biking and movies, Hollywood journeys across the continent on a Harley Davidson. The 3000-mile tour takes in culinary locations inspired by iconic films. In Los Angeles, he samples the burgers in Bob’s Big Boy Diner, which appears in Pulp Fiction, and in New York it’s pizza in Lenny’s Pizzeria, featured in Saturday Night Fever.
Kirsty Hanson, commissioning editor at UKTV, commented: “We are thrilled to be working with Paul Hollywood on this perfect combination of the nation’s love of travel, film and baking. This series is packed full of adventure and fun and will make an excellent show for both film fans and foodies.”
Vicky Walker, channel director for Good Food, said: “This is an exciting new look at food in the USA and the influence that Hollywood movie culture has had on its cuisine. This adventure with Paul Hollywood will be a brilliant addition to Good Food’s growing slate of new shows.”
Tris Payne, Executive Producer for Denham Productions, said: “We’re delighted to be working with one of the biggest names in TV for our new series for UKTV. With Paul’s talent and Denhams’ food and travel heritage, Paul Goes To Hollywood will be a road trip brimming with movie memories and some great food along the way!”
