Food Network signed a new three-year agreement with host Alton Brown.
The channel recently re-signed celebrity cook Rachael Ray, but has a less-certain relationship with its biggest star Emeril Lagasse. Production of long-running “Emeril Live” was halted late last year.
Under his new deal, Mr. Brown will produce new seasons of “Good Eats” and “Iron Chef America,” plus specials.
He will also produce a limited series, “Feasting on Waves,” which will premiere in the summer and look at the food and culture of the Caribbean.
“We are thrilled to continue our long-standing relationship with Alton and look forward to creating compelling programs with him,” said Brooke Johnson, president of Food Network, in a statement. “’Good Eats’ launched in 1999, its popularity and that of Alton is a testament to the creativity and longevity of our talent and programming.”
“Food Network is my home and I am staying home,” said Mr. Brown. “I’m looking forward to producing more and varied shows with the network and am especially excited about ‘Feasting on Waves,’ which will bring a whole new perspective to food.”
