It is pretty standard that the Food Network does not use the pilot name that is filmed during Food Network Star. Last year, Justin Warner's pilot was Rebel with a Culinary Cause, and he had a working title of Justin's Excellent Adventure. Then when his 1 hour show finally aired, it was called Rebel Eats. So don't be surprised if The Damaris Project doesn't end up being the show name.
Right now, The Damaris Project is scheduled to start filming in a few weeks, and is supposed to air starting Sunday, October 27th at 10:30am. There will be replays on Wednesdays at 5:30pm as well, which will start Wednesday November 6th.
Damaris has confirmed to a few fans on Twitter that her show will start filming soon and that it will air in October (Tweets below), so barring any crazy setbacks or controversies, nothing should change.
After last year's debacle of getting the Food Network Star winner (Justin Warner) his show, it seems like the Food Network wants to get Damaris's show on the air as soon as possible. They have also moved back to giving the Food Network Star winner a morning slot on the weekends.
UPDATE 9/18/2013 - Damaris revealed with at tweet (below - which was later removed) that filming for her show would start next week and that it would be filmed in her hometown of Louisville.
