The Smolletts are set to premiere on Food Network in August with new series Smollett Eats, offering a first-hand look at this talented family as they braise, bake and grill their way through six episodes of food, family and fun. From putting on the perfect kids’ birthday party, to throwing a midnight BBQ for their friends, these six siblings whip up some of their family’s favorite recipes while giving us a glimpse into the relationships that make these brothers and sisters so much fun. Baby back ribs and pork chili verde are just some of the mouth-watering dishes that cooking ace Jake Smollett and his brothers, Jocqui, Jojo and Jussie, and sisters, Jazz and Jurnee, bring to the table. It’s a meal you won’t want to miss! Smollett Eats is produced by Triage Entertainment.
“It’s an exciting time for Food Network as demand for food-centric content seems to be at an all-time high,” said Didi O’Hearn, Senior Vice President Programming, Food Network & Cooking Channel. “We’re looking forward to showcasing some fantastic new series, specials and stars on both networks and loading up our development slate with even more of what our audiences want to enjoy.”
