Food Detectives mixes a healthy dose of humor with a wealth of fascinating factoids. Aided by willing culinary techs and the brains from the leading science and technology magazine Popular Science, the series will conduct experiments to find the truth behind the most interesting food myths. Ted and his team will dig deep to answer questions like: Does it really take seven years for gum to digest in your stomach? Is the five-second rule true? Can an “apple a day” really keep the doctor away? Viewers can also get in on the fun by submitting their most puzzling food conundrums for potential show experiments.
"We’ve wanted to work with Ted for years on a series of his own and we’ve found a great fit in Food Detectives," said Bob Tuschman, Senior Vice President, Programming and Production for Food Network. "Not only will this show provide a wealth of interesting information for our viewers, it also gives Ted an opportunity to show off his wit and culinary knowledge."
I was very fortunate to meet and talk to Ted while attending the Amex After Party last Feb. in Miami. If you've followed his career on shows like Queer Eye, Top Chef, and Iron Chef, you know he's a very smart, funny, and adept talent. I look forward to the show muchooooo.
