Food Network and Cooking Channel are firing up the programming pipeline with 350 premiere hours planned for the second half of the year, with returning fan-favourites complemented by 13 new series and 25 pilots.

food network 19 June 2017"Summer has long been a time to enjoy seasonal offerings and as the halfway mark on the calendar, an ideal place for both Food Network and Cooking Channel to sweeten the programming line-up for the rest of the year," said Courtney White, SVP of programming for the networks. "Entertaining stories, trusted experts and personalities, and most importantly, mouth-watering food, work together to reinforce the leadership position these brands have long been known for."

Food Network's schedule will include new series such as: Dessert Games, the Guy Fieri-hosted docu-series Guy's Big Project, I Hart Food, a travelogue hosted by new-to-the-network Hannah Hart, and all-new cooking series Bobby & Damaris. Also launching are all-new episodes of Texas Cake House plus returning seasons for Chopped Grill Masters, Halloween Baking Championship, Halloween Wars, Holiday Baking Championship and Christmas Cookie Challenge. Rounding out the Q3/Q4 slate are pilots ranging from food-first travel adventures, competitions and deep dives into everything from bacon to baking and everything in between.

Cooking Channel meanwhile will premiere Monster Food as well as Late Nite Eats, and UK imports Choccywoccydoodah and Heston's Fantastical Food, as well as returning favourites like Big Bad BBQ Brawl, Carnival Eats, Cheap Eats, Food: Fact or Fiction? and Man Fire Food, plus a variety of pilots.
