Discovery’s US cabler Food Network has ordered a three-part lockdown special version of Diners, Drive-Ins And Dives (aka Triple D) with host Guy Fieri.
Diners, Drive-Ins And Dives: Takeout starts 24 April and will follow Fieri as he checks in with four chefs featured in the show from across the country via video-chat to see how they are coping with the impact of Covid-19.
The three episodes will explore how their businesses are faring but also follow Fieri as he attempts to recreate their recipes. Each chef will send a list of ingredients of their featured recipes and talk the host through the dishes.
“We are continuing to cook up creative programming ideas that entertain our viewers during these unprecedented times,” said Courtney White, president of Food Network.
“Diner, Drive-Ins and Dives is a fan-favorite, and we are thrilled to be able to still deliver it to our audience in unique ways from special DDD: A to Z marathons to new DDD: Takeout episodes self-shot by Guy at home.”
Fieri added: “Triple D has always been about hittin’ the road and celebrating the hard workin’ folks of the restaurant business. And while the restaurants are partially closed and the Camaro is parked, DDD: Takeout is here to show you how your favorite chefs are still cookin’ it up to keep people fed, support their communities, their families, and their employees.”
