Chef to relocate his campaign from West Virginia to Los Angeles.
Channel 4 to air series one from September 13th.
‘Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution’ (named ‘Jamie’s American Food Revolution’ in the UK), has been given a second series by US network ABC after impressive ratings followed by an Emmy Award for Outstanding Reality Series last month.
Channel 4 will begin transmitting the 6-part first series of ‘Food Revolution’ on September 13th. Both series are co-productions between Fresh One Productions and Ryan Seacrest Productions with Zoe Collins and Roy Ackerman executive producing the series on behalf of Fresh One alongside Ryan Seacrest himself and US producers Craig Armstrong and Charles Wachter.
While series one focused on “the unhealthiest city in America”, Huntington, West Virginia, the second series is due to tackle the obesity problems in America’s second largest city, Los Angeles. Filming is due to begin later in 2010.
‘Food Revolution’,based upon Jamie’s Ministry of Food and Jamie’s School Dinners programmes in the UK, is part of Jamie Oliver’s now global campaign to improve the way people eat – a campaign which includes Ministry of Food centres in the UK and soon Australia, a Home Cooking Skills course developed for British school children but available to anyone, and continuing work on improving school food in the UK and USA.
