Guy Fieri has signed a new multiyear exclusive deal with Food Network, it was announced Monday by Food Network President Courtney White. The new deal spans three years and includes bringing audiences more of Fieri’s Primetime Emmy-nominated series “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” as well as more episodes of fan-favorites “Guy’s Grocery Games” and the most recent ratings success, “Tournament of Champions,” along with new projects Fieri is already plotting out for both Food Network as well as for the newly launched discovery+ streamer.
With this new deal, Fieri will continue to take an active role in the development and production of his own series through his Knuckle Sandwich production banner and continue to partner with the network and producers from his long-running series.
Fieri made his first appearance on the network in 2006 when he won season two of “The Next Food Network Star.” Additional series that have helped to make him a household name include “Guy’s Big Bite,” “Guy Off The Hook,” “Guy Fieri’s Road Show,” “Guy’s Family Road Trip,” “Guy & Hunter’s European Vacation,” “Guy’s Ranch Kitchen,” and his recent documentary, “Restaurant Hustle 2020: All on the Line,” as well as numerous holiday specials and guest appearances.
“Guy Fieri infuses his unmatched energy and passion into every show he makes,” White said. “He is truly one-of-a-kind, adored globally for his own love of food and his deep appreciation for the people behind the restaurant scenes. I am beyond thrilled to be able to continue this extraordinary, creative partnership.”
Fieri said, “Food Network is my home and I’m stoked to continue the partnership with the entire Discovery family. The world of food is the ultimate unifier, so having a global platform to share real-life stories of some of the most deserving chefs, restaurateurs, home cooks, entrepreneurs and anyone who just loves a good meal is an incredible opportunity. I can’t wait for everyone to see what we’re cookin’ up next."
A chef, restaurateur, New York Times Best Selling author and Emmy Award-winning TV host, Fieri is one of the world’s most recognizable and influential culinary stars. In 2019, he was only the third chef to be honored by receiving a star on the celebrated Hollywood Walk Fame, a rare feat for any entertainer.
Fieri recently launched Flavortown Kitchen, a 175-location virtual brand to complement his 80-plus scratch kitchen restaurant concepts worldwide.
In addition, he’s partnered with legendary rocker and spirits pioneer Sammy Hagar in Santo Tequila.
