Super-celebrity chef Emeril Legasse will be kicking off a brand new entertainment and food program on ION Television beginning on Sunday 3/28/10, marking the network’s first foray into non-scripted entertainment programming.
The show, pegged for primetime at 8PM on Sundays, will feature a studio audience, a live house band, and celebrity guests.
“We are excited to bring Emeril’s ‘Positively Entertaining’ persona and larger-than-life superstar-chef status to ION Television. His brand will be a dynamic addition to our general entertainment network and a treat for our audience,” said Brandon Burgess, Chairman and CEO, ION Media Networks.
Legasse will continue to appear on other programs on both the Food Network and Fine Living, and is a regular on Martha Stewart Living Radio on SIRIUS XM.
