"Food has become cultural currency today"

David Chang and Chrissy Teigen are producing food TV shows for Hulu

The Hollywood Reporter reports that David Chang and Chrissy Teigen will be producing Hulu food TV shows.

Chang’s Majordomo Media and Teigen’s Suit and Thai Productions have teamed with Vox Media Studios to produce the shows.

The first show is tentatively titled Family Style, which explores how people express their love for family and friends through cooking.

“Food has become cultural currency today,” said Chang. “People know more about food than ever before. It’s never been a better time to eat in America today. People are traveling.”

“It’s reminded me of why I got into this business, to make someone feel joy and happiness through food,” he added.

“We have a lot of experience producing food TV and a lot of success doing it,” said Vox Media CEO Jim Bankoff. “Hulu is really the perfect partner for Vox Media to be collaborating with. We both are companies that believe in quality storytelling, we believe in talent.”
