“I just want to thank you all for your support this year and I’m so happy you liked the food and travel show and I’ve gotten all your messages on social media asking are there going to be more shows. … I wish I had some information for you but…”, says in a video posted on Twitter. He then opens up a fortune cookie that reveals he will “begin a new journey – Exclusively with Netflix.”
In the six-part series on PBS, Rosenthal traveled to Barcelona, Paris, Hong Kong, Italy and Los Angeles to sample local delicacies, which included a century-old egg and barbecued eel. Rosenthal told critics at TCA last year ahead of the show’s debut on PBS that it was about food’s power to unite and “expanding your mind a little bit.” His guests on the first season included Ray Romano, Martin Short, Allison Janney and comedian Dave Spector.
Netflix confirmed Rosenthal would be doing a show with the internet TV network, with more details to come at a later date. There was no immediate comment from PBS.
