New Ways to Cook and Showcase Food At The Food Network 2013 Upfronts

Food Network has an ambition slate of new and returning original content. The Food Network channel has become somewhat of a Cinderella story. It started off with critics thinking how could a channel devoted solely to cooking survive and thrive, and now it is one of the top rated cable channels, and has even garnered a spin off. There are more than a dozen new shows headed to the Food Network this season and they will feature everything from celebrities to fast-food and everything in between. There are so many new shows on the Food Network that I have trouble keeping count and I wrote the blog, if I missed a premiere date, or a new show just let me know in the comments section.

Amazon Studios Brings Original Series to Amazon, at their 2013 Upfronts

Amazon Studios has done its final selection process in an innovating way, letting the viewer’s decide which shows would make it to series. Out of amazon’s inaugural fourteen pilots, 5 series will air exclusively on amazon prime instant videos. I personally watched and voted for a few of the pilots myself, and I must say that I enjoyed the interactive process that Amazon Studios provided. So far there are only children’s shows and comedies, but they say they will eventually expanded into dramas, and I am anxiously awaiting for their next development slate.

National Geographic Channel Goes off the Map at 2013 Upfronts

The National Geographic Channel and Nat Geo Wild are quickly building themselves into a network that encompasses everything that has to do with the people who live in the United States, and the environment in which they live. From polygamy to wild predators, the national geographic is not afraid to shine a light in places most people have never heard of, or to explore places people have never been. At its upfront presentation in May, the national geographic channel introduced four new and seven returning series. The brass at the National Geographic Channel was so impressed with two of its freshman shows; they granted them a second season before the first even debuted. If you have not checked out any of the shows/miniseries currently airing on Nat Geo I strongly urge you to give it a try.
NGC FRESHMAN LINEUP:
CROSSING THE ICE (PREMIERED JUNE 14TH) follows two Australians as they attempt to become the first to journey from the edge of Antarctica to the South Pole and back unassisted.
