Produced in-house and set to screen on Gusto TV later this year, The Wizard of Sauce will be presented by Toronto-based chef Kyle Crawford.

As well as sharing culinary tips, Crawford will also perform as three different characters who will then be digitised in post-production and rendered as AI co-stars.

“We’re excited about where this will take us,” said Chris Knight, CEO of Gusto TV. “We have a variety of AI’s that allow us to open up new narratives and storylines for us to experiment with.”

The Canadian label is producing another AI-themed show, Some Assembly Required, featuring a chef who “speaks with Mother Nature” while preparing dishes.
