Coming off the hot streak of his participation in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, actor-meets-director-meets-screenwriter Jon Favreau is teaming up with celebrity chef Roy Choi for a brand new Netflix Originals series entitled The Chef Show. Channeling much of the same energy the duo brought to the arthouse film Chef, the new show seeks to further immerse viewers into the world of food and culture, noting that “making a meal is about more than just food. It’s about appreciating friends, family, and tradition. An opportunity to come together. To learn, to share and to celebrate different flavors, cultures, and people.”
The two longtime friends will be experimenting with their favorite recipes and various cooking techniques while simultaneously uniting alongside some of the biggest celebrities and chefs, effectively melding both worlds for an exciting new look at food. As can be seen in the newly-released trailer, star guests include Gwyneth Paltrow, Bill Burr, Robert Downey Jr, Tom Holland, Kevin Feige, the Russo brothers, Andrew Rea, Evan Kleiman, Jazz Singsanong, Robert Rodriguez, David Chang, Aaron Franklin and more.
You can watch the new trailer for The Chef Show above. The series will debut on Netflix on June 7.
