It comes after it arose recently that his dad and Schitt’s Creek co-star Eugene Levy was additionally getting into the unscripted TV game with a travel series for Apple.

Chefs will be offered the chance share their stories and their business dreams, while additionally going after a life changing prize. All while finding innovative and personal ways of reclassifying dining between 11am and 3pm.

“Everybody has a friend, a family member, or a co-worker that is extraordinary at what they do, they just need a leg up so that their talents can be appreciated on a larger scale,” Levy said. “Thanks to an almost obsessive love of food, I’ve been lucky enough to come across many of those people in the culinary world — friends working out of cafes or food trucks, revolutionizing the menus at local diners — those special humans who create communities around their cooking, hoping to take their skills to the next level. I created this show for them, the local culinary heroes of America who deserve a spotlight. That, and who doesn’t want to watch maple syrup being poured slowly over a golden stack of perfectly cooked, creme brûlée inspired French toast?”
Sarah Aubrey, Head of Original Content, HBO Max, added, “What we love about this special show is that it serves more than mouth-watering culinary delicacies; it’s about heart, a love of cooking and spotlighting talent whose unique skills elevate the beloved brunch menu. There’s no better foodie or creative partner than Dan and the team at Boardwalk Pictures to celebrate those undiscovered voices, and, well, brunch, the best meal to indulge in decadent sweet and savory dishes that are fueled by cocktails and caffeine.”
