Food Network Locks in Travel and Food Series Starring YouTuber Hannah Hart
The untitled project is slated for a late 2016 release and features Hart traveling to different cities and eating her way around the country. The catch? Hart’s food budget is determined by the average price of dining out in each respective city.
Food Network hopes to leverage Hart’s brand, loyal fans, and her ability to grow large online and social audiences. The show will be accompanied by online video and social content produced by Hart.
Perhaps best known for her YouTube show, “My Drunk Kitchen,” Hart has amassed more than 2.5 million subscribers and almost 250 million views since posting the first episode in 2011. Since then, Hart has gone on to write a New York Times bestseller, My Drunk Kitchen: A Guide to Eating, Drinking, and Going With Your Gut; she starred in Camp Takota; and she has another book and movie coming.
“My life has blessed me with so many wonderful opportunities that my goal is to find a way to make them accessible to all! Food Network is the perfect partner for this endeavor and I couldn't be more proud to call them mine,” Hart said.
