HBO Max is now developing a show inspired by Bon Appétit’s recent scandals. Titled Enjoy Your Meal, the series examines the issues of food media brought to light when an image of Bon Appétit’s Bex-Editor-In-Chief Adam Rapoport wearing brownface ignited reports of racial and cultural failings at the publication.
Reports are also noting that Enjoy Your Meal will feature guidance from Ryan Walker-Hartshorn, the only Black woman on staff at Bon Appétit and assistant to Rapoport. A synopsis for the half-hour series reads Enjoy Your Meal will “draw inspiration from the multiple media scandals of summer 2020 and today, focusing on a cohort of young assistants of color who rise up to tear their cookie-cutter corporate culture apart.”
