Hot on the heels of ending its carriage renewal saga with Virgin Media, leading British multichannel network, UKTV is teaming up with UK TV cookery reality star Paul Hollywood for a brand-new travelling foodie show.

goodfood 15Aug2018 2Made by Denham Productions, the 5 x 60' Paul Goes to Hollywood follows the former master baker on a road trip across the USA as he combines his profession with other passion for biking and film, journeying across the continent on a Harley Davidson before he arrives in the ultimate movie mecca, Hollywood.

Hollywood’s 3000-mile tour takes in culinary locations inspired by some of the most iconic films. In Los Angeles, he samples the burgers in Bob's Big Boy Diner, which appears in Pulp Fiction, and in New York it's pizza in Lenny's Pizzeria, well-known to film fans for Saturday Night Fever. He then tries his hand at making a Honey Tart, a sweet dessert native to New Orleans and Cowboy Coffee Cake in New Mexico. Famous friends join Hollywood along the way for a slice of pie and a $5 shake.

The programme will launch in 2019 on leading pay-TV food channel, Good Food, and will also air on W. It is being distributed by Bomanbridge Media.

“We are thrilled to be working with Paul Hollywood on this perfect combination of the nation's love of travel, film and baking,” commented Kirsty Hanson, commissioning editor at UKTV. “This series is packed full of adventure and fun and will make an excellent show for both film fans and foodies.”

Added Good Food channel director Vicky Walker: “This is an exciting new look at food in the USA and the influence that Hollywood movie culture has had on its cuisine. This adventure with Paul Hollywood will be a brilliant addition to Good Food's growing slate of new shows.”
