YouTube content historically has been
dominated by low- and no-budget user generated videos. But Seidel, a
former top executive at Food Network who oversaw the launch of its
sister network, Cooking Channel, said HUNGRY will feature professionally
produced videos worthy of any network.
At launch, videos will stick mostly with YouTube convention, running
one to three minutes, with new episodes posted weekly. Seidel said they
also are eager to explore longer format videos. By the end of the
summer, the channel hopes to have close to a dozen series, all produced
in partnership with multimedia studio Electus-IAC, which is responsible
for the channel's content.
One of the series will feature fellow Food Network alumnus Duff
Goldman, the cake master behind that channel's reality show "Ace of
Cakes." Goldman's YouTube program, "Duff's Food World," will be a
sometimes irreverent variety show focused on food pop culture, including
visits to unusual restaurants and spotlights of humorous food clips
from the web and TV. - HuffPo
