Food Network has ordered a travel series with YouTube star Hannah Hart and the series will be a "culinary travelogue adventure". It will be a six-episode series where Hannah will travel to six different cities and will dine out on a limited budget based on the city's average dining out price. Hannah Hart will also produce digital content for Food Network that will span across various social networks.
Hannah is most known for her YouTube series My Drunk Kitchen and her YouTube channel has over 2.5 million subscribers. She also has a New York Times best selling book titled My Drunk Kitchen: A Guide To Eating, Drinking, and Going With Your Gut. You may recall Hannah was a guest judge on an episode of Food Network Star this year.
This seems pretty similar concepts seen on Food Network before such as Rachael Ray's $40 a Day or Jeff Mauro's $24 in 24, but we will have to wait to see how it differs. Food Network most likely recruited Hannah Hart to help build their online brand and digital content, which is pretty apparent by the press release.
