Goldman will be executive producer and star in a new series, and serve as a talent and programming consultant for the channel. HUNGRY will launch on July 2 on YouTube.
“The future of food programming is moving online, and viewers are increasingly turning to the Internet for their entertainment and education,” said Goldman.

Some of the programmes scheduled are Duff’s Food World, a new series featuring Duff Goldman, and other new shows featuring Alex Thomopoulos, Chris Cosentino and Laura Vitale, that are yet to be named.
