TRAVEL+ESCAPE’S THE ILLEGAL EATER WITH HOST STEVEN PAGE BEGINS PRODUCTION
Original Series Premieres Fall 2013
(Toronto, ON) April 2, 2013 – Travel+Escape and Farpoint Films are proud to announce they have begun production on new original series The Illegal Eater with host and former Barenaked Ladies front man Steven Page. The 13-episode series will premiere in the fall of 2013. Musician and foodie Steven Page is on a mission to hunt down clandestine dining experiences as he explores the tastiest, creative, underground and often illegal spaces that chefs around North America have to offer.
“With food-based travel, the places you can go are limitless,” said Marcia Martin SVP, Original Content, Blue Ant Media. “But the one place we haven’t quite gone, is underground. We knew Steven’s extensive background in music, being on the road and love of gastronomy, would help uncover exciting and often unlicensed places to eat.”
“My passion on the road has always been to obsessively research the foods, restaurants and markets that make each place I’ve played different,” said host Steven Page. “Often, newer trends start underground before breaking through on the public’s palate, so I can’t wait to explore everything from fancy underground supper clubs to hole-in-the-walls.”
“We’re very excited to begin production and explore these underground dinner clubs,” said show creator, Chris Charney, Farpoint Films. “Our culinary journey is just beginning and we can’t wait to see how it unfolds.”
Illegal Eater is produced byFarpoint Films.The creative team includes Show Creator, Chris Charney, and Producer Kyle Bornais.
