One of the most prolific of the Food Network stars is pitching a new program for syndication — a daily game show that’s tentatively called "Food Chain," Variety reports. (Note that Variety may charge readers for access to its story.)
Food Network host Paula Deen and Natalka Znak, Zodiak USA’s head, have been in talks with distributors about the first-run 30-minute program.
"Food Chain" is already a successful television format in Italy, with families competing in a cooking contest to win ever larger cash prizes.
Deen would be the host of the new show.
