EXCLUSIVE: FYI has given a 10-episode series order to Big star David Moscow’s From Scratch, which follows the actor, producer and adventurer on a worldwide expedition making meals literally from scratch. It’s set for premiere Sunday, February 16 at 6 PM ET on FYI.
In From Scratch, after being presented a recipe from a chef, David must hunt, dive, gather, forage and grow each ingredient to remake the meal, revealing the overwhelming amount of work, craftmanship and passion that brings everyday ingredients into the kitchen. In its first season, Moscow milks a water buffalo for fresh mozzarella, harvests salt from the ocean, presses olive oil, and dives for octopus in rough waters. Along the way he spotlights acclaimed chefs, restaurants and cultures around the world: from crafting a local sustainable Scandinavian feast with Chef Jari Vesivalo in Helsinki, to a statewide wild goose chase for a Northeast fall meal with New York Chef Dan Kluger, to learning how apartheid shaped cooking and family for South African Chef Abigail Mbalo-Mokoena.
Moscow is host, executive producer and co-creator with Karen Moscow in the series, produced by UnLTD Productions. Moscow co-writes with director/EP Graeme Swanepoel. Jordan Harman and Christian Murphy serve as executive producers for A+E Networks/FYI. Jason Dreyer, Karen Moscow, Graeme Swanepoel and Damien Brown also executive produce.
